Summer Quarter at the University of Washington offers a huge variety of courses and programs — more than 1,000 courses in more than 100 fields of study. No matter what your goals or interests are, you’ll find a program or class to meet your needs and spark your interest to keep learning.

Remote and Campus Courses

UW Summer Quarter typically includes courses at the main UW campus and at UW Tacoma and UW Bothell. But due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the vast majority of courses this summer will be held remotely and not in person. See the Remote & Campus Courses page for more information and to search for courses.

Online Courses

UW Summer Quarter offers a select number of traditionally online courses that were designed to be delivered in an online format. See the Online Courses page to browse course offerings. 

Course Length

Summer Quarter is divided into A Term and B Term, each lasting four-and-a-half weeks. Some courses span just one term while others extend over both (full term). See the Key Dates & Deadlines page for more details.

Special Summer Courses and Programs

The UW offers a number of special courses and programs that are only available during Summer Quarter, including intensive foreign language offerings
