Summer Term Work

School of Education Policy

Boston University’s Summer Term covers two 6-week sessions. In the 12 weeks, students may earn up to 16 semester credits, the equivalent of a full semester of work during the regular year. A maximum of 8 credits may be taken during a six-week session.

By University policy, students pursuing summer coursework within the Boston metropolitan area must take such courses at Boston University unless a) the course is a program requirement and is not offered in the Boston University Summer Term, or b) the student receives written pre-approval from the program director of the relevant SED program, the student’s advisor, and the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.
