Summer Session

Get Ahead. Stay on Track. Catch Up.

Why should you enroll in OU Summer Session?

Summer Session at the University of Oklahoma provides students with "more possibilities" and a unique opportunity to get ahead, stay on track, or catch up while still enjoying some downtime during the summer.

Most summer classes held on campus are small, allowing students and faculty to enjoy more informal interactions in a relaxed environment. In addition, all students may live on campus during the summer months where friendships are formed, programming and activities are provided, and easy parking is available.

Understanding that many look forward to a slower pace during summertime, OU’s intensive, accelerated summer course schedule allows students to earn quick credit hours while providing ample time for enjoying summer downtime and fun.
