NEW! 11-day sessions

Customize your Summer with NEW 11-day Sessions!!


We Know You're busy

That's why SMU Intersessions now offers 11-day courses in both June and July. Enjoy the same great format as MayTerm.  Complete a 1-credit or 3-credit course in a little over 2 weeks and have the rest of your summer free for work, an internship, or a much needed break. 

Mix and Match

Take multiple courses, mix and match the 11-day sessions with others offered in the 11 class-day or the standard 22 class-day formats.  See how it works.

Summer 11-day schedules

Standard June (Sum 1) & July (Sum 2) summer sessions meet for 22 class days (over about 5 weeks).  11 class-day sessions have been scheduled to fall either in the first or second half of these sessions and share a start date (A sessions) or end date (B sessions) with the main sessions. Courses in the 11 class-day format meet 4 hours each day Monday through Friday - the same format as in MayTerm!


SMU offers 3 session lengths: Combined: 44 class days; June (summer 1) and July (summer 2): 22 class days; and June A&B and July A&B, each 11 class days.

Students may enroll in up to 14 credit hours over the summer term.  Generally, no more than 7 credit hours may be taken at a time.  Students wishing to enroll in 11-day sessions follow normal enrollment procedures.  Students taking an 11-day course may also enroll in a concurrent 22-day course, schedules permitting.

Enrollment through my.SMU opens Monday, April 8 at 12:01 am for all current students (regardless of enrollment appointment). 

Costs are the same for 11-day sessions & SMU Financial Aid applies in the same way it would for any other Summer session.
