Summer Session FAQ

Undergraduate students

Who is allowed to enroll in Summer Session for-credit courses?

Summer Session courses are open to currently enrolled Duke undergraduate students, DKU undergraduate students, and undergraduate students at other universities (i.e., not seeking their degree at Duke). A selection of Term 2 Summer Session courses are open to rising 11th and 12th grade high school students.

What are the tuition and fees for summer 2022? 

Please visit:  Tuition & Fees for information regarding tuition and fees. 

All Summer Session students will be assigned to Edens Quad in either single or double rooms. All students living on campus will be required to have a meal plan. Please see the Housing & Dining section for 2022 rates.

I would like to be in Durham this summer and live in Duke housing. Do I need to be enrolled in for-credit summer classes?  

In order to live on campus, you must be enrolled in credit bearing coursework or an approved co-curricular activity.  You must commit to living in campus housing for the duration of your academic or co-curricular term.

Students who are involved in a local co-curricular program or working in Durham as a research assistant, intern, etc. can apply to live on campus this summer through Conference and Event Services (CES). CES will house students in 300 Swift. Students are responsible for housing and a meal plan. The dates for CES housing are May 22 - July 31. Please reach out to summer-ces@duke.edu to receive the application or ask any other questions.

Can I live on campus if I am taking only virtual classes at Duke this summer?

Yes.  You may live on campus as long as you are enrolled in credit bearing coursework or an approved co-curricular activity. For students who have been accepted into a summer 2022 co-curricular program or research lab, housing will be coordinated through Duke Conference and Events Services, not Duke Housing and Residence Life. Please check-in with your program lead on housing information and updates for your co-curricular program.

Can I take classes at the Marine Lab?

Yes.   https://nicholas.duke.edu/marinelab

Graduate and Professional students

Can graduate and professional students enroll in Summer Session classes? Do I need to pay tuition?

Graduate and professional students may enroll in Summer Session classes.  Please consult with your program about the tuition implications of taking a course outside of your respective program or school. You should assume that tuition for courses that are unrelated to your program and that do not count as credit toward the degree will be charged at the undergraduate Summer Session rate.
