Summer classes at Winston-Salem State University (WSSU) are just a few weeks away. This is a great way to improve your GPA, move toward graduating early, or complete prerequisites more quickly. 

With classes starting May 15, now is the time to prepare. Here’s what you need to know to get ahead this summer.

At WSSU this summer, you can complete courses in a little as five weeks. Also, because WSSU offers two sessions, you don’t have to spend your entire summer in class if you don’t want to.

WSSU offers two summer sessions:

  • May 15: Summer Session I classes begin
  • June 24: Summer Session II classes begin

Current/Returning Students

Summer is a great time to:

  • Improve your GPA
  • Graduate faster
  • Complete prerequisites

Academic advisement is available through your advisor. Contact University College and Lifelong Learning (UCaLL) if you are unsure of who your academic success counselor is. Continuing student early registration continues through April 18. To avoid being purged for non-payment, it is strongly advised that you pay for classes upon registering.

Students who are interested in receiving financial aid must submit the Summer School Financial Aid Application Form. The application opens on March 29. Students must register and finalize their class schedules prior to submitting the application. The financial aid application deadline is April 18.
