Yes. The School offers one summer session, which begins the week after commencement in May and ends either the last week of June (classes that meet twice a week) or the last week of July (classes that meet once a week). If your first term of enrollment is in January, then you should automatically plan to take summer classes. As a first step, please consult with your advisor and the Office of Student Services (send an e-mail to sw-studentservices@columbia.edu) to confirm whether the summer classes you have in mind will be offered and you are eligible to sign up. NOTE: You must enroll for at least six credits in order to be eligible for federal loans.
