Summer Term 2022

Academic course offerings

During the summer, courses may be taken in a variety of formats: remote or self-study (which includes Independent, Directed, and Summer Individual Study).

Remote courses are offered in two sessions:

  • Session A: June 1 – June 24, 2022
  • Session B: June 27 – July 22, 2022

$1,630 per course

Select Summer 2022 from the drop down (available soon), Continue, and Search. Select 50 from the drop down menu to see the entire schedule. Hover over the Meeting Times to see when the course meets and the session. If the course does not indicate days of the week under Meeting Times, it is an individual study and does not meet in a remote class.

Students with financial aid who withdraw or fail to complete their course study will no longer be eligible for institutional scholarship or grant.  Federal financial aid is awarded based on a specific federal formula to calculate eligibility of federal aid based on student’s last date of attendance.

Independent, Directed and Individual Studies

There are no scheduled classes. Students work independently under the supervision of the faculty. Many Independent, Directed and Summer Individual Studies do not require personal meetings or conferences between the faculty member and student. Written or e-mail correspondence, telephone communication and, in some instances, electronic bulletin boards provide the faculty/student interaction. Some courses, however, will require periodic virtual meetings with the instructor.

How do Independent, Directed and Individual Studies differ?

Directed Study courses are designated Eckerd College courses that have been specifically adapted to and formally approved for delivery as courses to be taken outside the formal remote class setting. For each Directed Study course there exists an approved study guide syllabus. As list of approved Directed Study courses can be found in the course catalog. It is the responsibility of the student to obtain the syllabus from the instructor.

Individual Study courses are Eckerd College catalog courses which may be taken in an individual study format during the summer. These courses are adapted for Individual Study by the sponsoring professor who provides a syllabus. It is the responsibility of the student to obtain the syllabus from the instructor.

Independent Study courses allow students the opportunity to pursue areas of study and research in which no course work is offered but for which appropriate faculty resources exist. Independent Study projects allow students greater flexibility to pursue studies that are either of special interest to them or necessary for the completion of their degree requirements. Contracts are available online, at the Registrar’s Office and the Summer School Office. Read all instructions carefully.
