Salem College offers a non-residential program of college courses during the summer. The courses are standard college courses which typically meet four days a week for five and one-half weeks or two days a week for a ten-week session. Online and hybrid classes are also offered. Information about specific courses will be available early in the spring term. Independent study and internship programs are offered according to student and faculty interest. The School of Music may offer individual instruction in music during the summer; credit may be earned for a maximum of 2 semester hours. A student may take no more than two courses or a maximum of 10 semester hours in any 5-week summer session at Salem. A maximum of four courses may be taken in the summer. To be eligible for financial aid, students must take a minimum of 6 semester hours over the course of the summer session(s).

The college reserves the right to cancel any courses with insufficient enrollment. Summer School registration should not be interpreted as admission to a degree program; The Fleer Center, Admissions Office, or Graduate Program must be contacted for that purpose. 

There are three different options for Summer 2018. The full term (10 week) classes will be offered May 21 - August 4, 2018. The first five-week session is May 21 - June 23, 2018.
