MAYmester

2017 MAYmester credit courses are intense; a three-credit class meets for only 10 days. Many credit courses require reading and/or writing to be completed prior to the start of class. Check the course syllabi below for more information.  All students must be in good academic standing to take a MAYmester course and students taking a 100 or 200 level course must have a 2.5 GPA.

MAYmester registration is at UAOnline for degree-seeking students. All others use the Summer Sessions registration form, available February 27.  Registration is limited to 3 credits during MAYmester.

MAYmester payment must be completed by May 8.  Late fees begin May 9.  Students with guaranteed financial aid for summer semester will have payment applied to their account with the summer financial aid disbursement. The last day to withdraw from a MAYmester class is May 15.

Dorm housing during MAYmester is available for students who lived in the dorms during spring semester. Other students need to apply for summer housing by April 15 to be considered for MAYmester housing.
