Summer Session

The Drake University Summer Session is an extension of the regular academic year but includes special workshops, institutes and lectures on a variety of contemporary issues. Day and evening graduate and undergraduate courses are offered in most of the departments, colleges and schools of the University. Many summer course offerings are Web-based.

Current Drake students may enroll through Drake's online registration system. Non-Drake students may request registration by contacting the Office of Student Records and Academic Information at 515-271-2025.

Admission Information

Drake University has a policy of open admission to the Summer Session for those students not enrolled in a Drake University degree program provided course enrollment does not exceed a total of 12 credit hours as a non-degree-seeking student.

New high school graduates, currently enrolled high school students, undergraduates enrolled at other institutions, students holding bachelor’s degrees interested in taking courses but not seeking a graduate degree from Drake University, or individuals seeking courses for personal interest or professional advancement may request registration by contacting the Office of Student Records and Academic Information at 515-271-2025.

The special admission requirements and procedures for the Law School are the same as for the regular year. Information is available from the Law School.
