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. Boston College does not issue student visas for Summer Session. 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. Limited in-person and hybrid courses are also offered.

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 lectures and workshops ranging from the college admissions process, resume writing and networking skills, and cultural and social outings all while enjoying the beautiful city of Boston over the summer.
