Summer Semester at LEC

Looking to catch up on course credits or simply get ahead? Need to boost your GPA? Want a chance to focus exclusively on a trickier course?

Take advantage of Lake Erie College’s expanded summer course schedule. With both on-campus and online options, the summer semester at LEC offers a convenient and affordable way for you to achieve your goals.  

Benefits of the summer semester:

  • Stay on track to graduate in 4 years (or sooner!).
  • Increase your LEC grade point average - only LEC courses are factored into your LEC GPA.
  • Save money - taking 2 courses per summer for 2 summer semesters would earn you the same amount of credits as a standard full-time semester at less than half the cost of full-time tuition!

Three summer sessions are available:

  • Session E: 13 weeks (May 16 - August 19)
  • Session A: 1st 6 weeks (May 20 - July 8)
  • Session B: 2nd 6 weeks (July 8 - August 16)

Tuition for the summer semester is only $499 per credit hour (plus a $55 fee for science courses with a lab). This rate offers more than a $300 savings from the standard semester. Save time and money by making the most of your summer at LEC!

Registration for the summer semester opens April.
