2020 Summer Sessions

Summer 2020 course plans are shaping up. We are offering more courses than ever, and new ones are still in the works. Many of these of courses can fulfill the COLL 300 requirement, others could fulfill the Arts or Math proficiency. We’ve never had so many summer language courses. This could be the summer to complete some of your graduation requirements, or to follow up on an interest you would not otherwise have time for. 

All courses are open to current W&M students. If you're not a current student, you may apply to take a course or two as a non-degree seeking student.

All 2020 summer courses will be offered either entirely online (and designated "online course" in the Catalog) or as a blend of methods delivered through remote learning.

  • Session 1: June 1 - July 3 
  • Session 2: July 6 - August 7
  • Session 3: June 1 - August 7
Sessions in D.C.


For complete course information, please consult the Registrar's Dynamic Schedule. Each course listing includes the instructor's email address. If there are prerequisites listed for the course you want, contact the instructor with any placement questions or consult the undergraduate Course Catalog.

Using Banner and the Dynamic Schedule


In the Dynamic Schedule: Once classes are loaded during the spring semester, choose Summer 2020 and click the Submit button.


  • To search for courses in an academic area, use the Subject box and select the area you're interested in, then scroll to the bottom of the form and click the Class Search button.
  • You can select multiple criteria on the form to narrow your search results; ctrl+a will select all.
  • To search for courses taught online, use the Attribute box and select "Online Course"
If you're using Banner to register, note that the system is checking prerequisites for all classes to make sure that students are properly placed. This means that students interested in taking two consecutive courses (e.g. PHYS 101 and PHYS 102) will need an "override" to register for the second course - contact the instructor for the appropriate override.
