Purple Summer 2021

Use Your Summer Brilliantly

Online or on campus, summer classes are a great way to get a jump on your academics. Talk with your advisor and sign up as soon as possible — classes fill quickly!


A Purple Summer Is Time Well Spent. Here’s Why.


Get Ahead 

Stay on track to graduate on schedule — or even early. Taking core classes now means more time for internships, work and activities later.

Forge Your Path

Choose from a wide array of in-person or online courses. It's a great way to work toward a minor, emphasis or even a second major.

Make It Personal 

Summer is an excellent time to connect with faculty and take popular classes that fill up quickly in spring and fall.

Find Support 

TCU offers several options to make taking  summer sessions more affordable. Learn more about  summer financial aid

Being able to take a summer course was very helpful in getting degree requirements that I didn’t have time to finish during the regular semester, and with online options, it was a really flexible experience!
