Why You Should Go to UNCP Summer School...

Well, Start with These Reasons...

  • Graduate Early. Use any of our five sessions to add to your credit total and advance your graduation.
  • Better Value for Your Money. Are the summer school classes at your current college or university a little too expensive to allow you to take them? Or even if you're a UNCP student, wouldn't it be nice to finish a 3-credit course in less than 16 weeks?
  • Explore Your Academic Options. Are you unsure of your major and want to try out some courses in various majors?
  • Lots of Flexibility. You can take our Summer School classes in classrooms at UNCP or our satellite campuses ----and online.
  • Broaden Your Education. Would you like to concentrate on your major so you can take more electives later on in your school career?
  • Transferability. Anything you take with us will transfer at other UNC system schools.
  • Promotability. A new or different degree might be just what you need to get promoted...

The good thing is that whatever reason you have for wanting or needing to go to summer school, UNC Pembroke has the courses you need at a competitive price and a convenient schedule. And it’s all delivered with the kind of personal attention that has drawn so many students to study with us. 

We say 'Catch the UNCP Spirit'. It's the spirit of personal attention, accountability and learning. Our professors often choose UNC Pembroke because small class sizes make it possible for them to devote as much time as necessary to ensure that their students get a full chance to learn. That’s true during the regular school year, but during summer school sessions, student-to-faculty ratios are even better. We know that personal attention is important because not everyone learns the same way or at the same speed. At UNC Pembroke, we will accommodate your learning needs.


  • MayMester : May 9 - 19

  • Summer 1 Intra : May 23 - June 13

Will My Courses Transfer?

The courses you take and pass at UNC Pembroke during our summer sessions count the same as courses you take during the regular school year. If you are a student at a school outside North Carolina, chances are good that classes taken here will transfer directly as full credit hours. Arrangements by school vary, so we recommend you discuss specific transferability with our summer school staff and your home school

Lodging and Dining All Included

As our guests, personal attention will extend outside the classroom as well ---to your housing and dining. Stay in a traditional residence hall or an apartment, your choice. All are close to classrooms and dining, with an all-you-care-to-eat facility nearby. All you have to do is pick your package.

If you decide to live in the on-campus Oak Hall, you'll be required to buy the Traditional Summer Session Meal Plan*. If you choose to live in the Courtyard campus apartments, you'll have access to a kitchen and can prepare some or all of your meals there, mix and match with an a la carte plan or save the cooking and buy a meal plan.

To keep things simple, we offer one full meal plan---the Traditional Summer Session Meal Plan--- for each 5-week period, starting with Session 1 (no plans are available for MayMester). The cost for that plan will be announced soon*.
