Summer Advancement Program

Get a head start on college with the Summer Advancement program!

Through the Summer Advancement Program, you'll get a taste of the college experience as you take regular college courses taught by University of Dayton professors. The credits you earn can be transferred to any college or university, and tuition is free - you only have to pay for your textbooks, transportation, personal expenses, and any laboratory or materials fees.

The program runs from June 26-August 5. This course listing (.pdf) shows the course options for Summer 2017.

For more information, contact Shyra Thomas, admission and financial aid counselor, at 800-UD PRIDE (800-837-7433) or sthomas2@udayton.edu.
