Summer is an excellent opportunity to fulfill a general education requirement or complete an elective. Taking classes during the summer can lighten your load during the academic year. Summer Sessions are designed to offer short courses so you will still have part of your summer study-free!

A variety of online course offerings allow you to take courses from home. Marietta College faculty provide the same quality instruction in a condensed format. Participating in the Acadeum consortium program allows us to supplement our MC offerings with select courses taught by accredited institutions. Visit Self-Service or the Course Listings page to find out what classes are right for you.

A student may enroll in a maximum of two courses in any single or overlapping sessions during the summer and a maximum of four (3-4 credit) courses for the entire summer semester. Permission for exceptions to these limitations must be obtained from the Registrar and requires a minimum 3.000 cumulative grade point average and advisor support.
