Summer Session I: June 7 - June 25, 2021
Summer Session II: July 5 - August 13, 2021

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, the Spring 2021 term was moved back two weeks, making the summer break two weeks shorter than normal. Therefore, the Summer Session I will be compressed to three weeks – this is the typical length of a January interim term – from June 7 to June 25 instead of the normal six weeks. No change was made to the length of the Summer Session II, which will run from July 5 to August 13.

Important notes about Internships:

  • Students are responsible for securing their own internship placement.
  • Only one departmental internship can count for credit towards graduation; INT 200 internships do not count for credit towards graduation.
  • Whether participating in a department internship or INT 200, the Application for Internship form must be completed and approved prior to the start of the internship.
  • All internships are recorded in Summer II; however, the internship experience may begin sooner and/or span the entire summer.



All students must meet any prerequisites for courses to be taken during Summer Sessions.  Undergraduate students from other colleges or universities may register for Lafayette College’s Summer Session provided they furnish proof of prerequisites from their own institution.  We suggest that you contact the Registrar or Dean at your school to ensure that credits earned at Lafayette may be applied toward your degree.  Students from other institutions should contact the Registrar’s Office at regarding the registration process.  Registrations may be submitted up to the last working day before classes begin.  



For remote classes, the class times shown in the schedule reflect the times when the entire class meets synchronously. The instructor will announce additional times or instructional activities for asynchronous formats like individual meetings with the instructor, pre-recorded lectures, discussions with the instructor via online discussion forums, or various kinds of small-group meetings and independent student work. While the course will not meet in the traditional format, it will cover the same amount of material and require the same level of effort and engagement  as it would in a traditional/full semester.



Tuition is $2,450 per course.

Payment is required by the first day of class. The summer course tuition bill will be posted to the Lafayette student’s account, accessible through Banner Self-Service. Students registering must submit tuition payment with their registration. Student Billing will accept credit cards for summer courses. Please email and ask for a representative to give you a call to make a credit card payment. Please remember to include your phone number for the return call.
