Summer Sessions/CoursesSummer sessions

Take advantage of summer by registering for courses at Saint Xavier University to help you graduate on time or earlier! Courses begin as early as May 2020, so register early to ensure you get the classes you need!

New, returning and visiting students can select from a variety of summer courses and earn credits toward their degree. Undergraduate courses for traditional Chicago-based students also are offered at a lower tuition rate, so you can't afford to miss out!

For summer tuition rates, please visit our Tuition and Fees web page.
