Whittier College Undergraduate Summer Courses

The Whittier College Summer Program offers traditional classroom instruction as well as fully online courses.

Courses are scheduled with individual dates of instruction and may overlap other offerings. Please pay close attention to the start and end dates for each class.

Members of Whittier College faculty and select adjunct instructors teach Summer Program courses. All courses satisfy requirements for Whittier College academic credit and may be applied toward degree requirements. The maximum number of credits for which a student may register during the summer is 13. All courses are transcripted using semester credit hours.
