Summer Session

Boston College Summer Session offers a wide variety of undergraduate courses, which run over two six-week sessions. Our courses are open to anyone with a high-school diploma or the equivalent, and no application is required to enroll. We also offer a selection of graduate courses through the Woods College of Advancing Studies master's programs. Summer classes are three or four credits, and the majority of courses take place online. Courses with an in-person component meet twice a week for six weeks; exceptions noted in individual course descriptions in this catalog.

The Boston College Experience Program

The Boston College Experience provides motivated high school students the opportunity to live and learn as students at Boston College. Through adherence to our Jesuit mission, our programs focus on exposing students to a rich and rewarding college experience through coursework, extracurricular activities, and reflection. Built into the programs are activities that help to prepare students for their college search and the transition into college life. Students will participate in service learning activities, culture, and social outings all while enjoying the beautiful city of Boston over the summer.
