Summer Session 2024

Get ahead in your major, minors, and certificates; complete general education requirements, and delve into your interests. Courses are primarily offered in person, with a selection of online courses available.  

Our courses include the required and traditional as well as the novel and innovative. 



For Duke Students

Our Summer Session gives current undergraduates and incoming transfer students a way to catch up on their courses, focus on more difficult classes, or jump ahead in their studies so they can engage in other programs like Study Abroad. The program is also available for graduating Duke seniors, Duke alumni and Duke employees who want to continue their education.

Registration for Duke Students opens in DukeHub on Monday, February 19.
