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 featuring a robust offering of online courses. 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!).
  • 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 11 - August 10)
  • Session A: 1st 6 weeks (May 18 - June 26)
  • Session B: 2nd 6 weeks (June 29 - August 7)

For this summer, we are offering a discount off our regular undergraduate summer rate of $499 per credit hour, and there are no special fees, making our summer tuition even more affordable. Please see Tuition and Fees for more information. This rate offers even more 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.
