Registration for Summer quarter opens April 13!

If you are a current or incoming UW student, there are a number of great reasons to take classes during Summer Quarter. It's a perfect time to enroll in a course you need, explore a new interest, or check out a special program. Earn academic credit and make this summer count.

Why UW Summer Quarter?

  • Better Access. Grab a seat in a popular course. Many courses that fill up fast during the regular academic year are open during the summer and often have fewer students.
  • Major, Minor and Requirement Courses. Catch up or get ahead with Summer Quarter classes. Check off a major requirement, a prerequisite or an Area of Knowledge course.
  • Accelerated Learning. Make the most of your time with condensed, intensive summer courses. The full quarter lasts nine weeks, and some classes are half that length.

Get started here:

The realities of growing inequality, political stalemate, and climate disruption just scratch the surface of global issues we face today. It is clear that the current system doesn’t work for the vast majority of people on the planet, and we need to work toward something better.

At the same time new ideas and movements are challenging long held boundaries of what’s politically possible, illustrated by the success of Bernie Sanders, the resonance of #BlackLivesMatter, and campaigns to block the fossil fuel economy.

In order to build a world that puts people, communities and the planet first, we need to imagine what’s possible. We invite you to help us build a learning community for realignment of the economy, environment, and democracy so that all three systems work better for people and the planet.
