Make your summer count
Catch up, speed up or get ahead with summer classes. If the course you need to take with the professor you want is fully booked throughout the spring and fall, see what the summer catalog has to offer
Whether you’re looking to graduate early, enroll in that core class that normally fills up fast, or transfer credits back to your home university, the Summer semester at MSU Denver has everything you need and more. Take advantage of even smaller than normal class sizes and an expanded selection of online classes.
Why should you enroll in summer classes?
Do you want to take summer classes? Now you can qualify for an additional grant if you’re taking 6 or more credits, even if you've used your fall and spring grants, thanks to year-round Pell! Find out more about Federal Pell Grants.
The maximum credit hours an MSU Denver student can register for the summer semester is 12. Students seeking to take on additional credits must have a Petition for Overload approved by their dean.

*Priority Registration begins for graduate students and seniors, followed by juniors, sophomores, continuing freshman, then newly-admitted freshman. Visit the Student Hub to check your specific priority registration date/time.
**Summer classes begin for full-semester, 8-week classes only. If your course is not a full-semester class, log into the Student Hub and click on "Student Detail Schedule" to check specific dates and deadlines.
We welcome you to stay enrolled at MSU Denver for as long as you'd like. Not everyone is able to graduate ahead of schedule or even on time; but the longer you stay in school, the more it will cost. The difference in graduating in four years as opposed to five can cost you thousands of dollars. By taking summer classes, you're expediting your graduation date and reducing your student debt.
Need something productive for your kids to do this summer? Bring your kids to campus while you take your summer classes. MSU Denver offers a plethora of summer camps that fit around your busy schedule. Camps are available for children of all ages in fields of STEM, college readiness, music and sports.
