How It Works

The DC Summer Session hybrid model courses are:

  • In-person sessions are held in the evening or over a weekend to accommodate both faculty and student schedules
  • Scheduled during on-campus session dates (exact dates vary by year):
    • 2020 DC Summer Session I
      • June 1 - July 3, 2020
