Summer Session

Summer is a great opportunity to fulfill a general education requirement or complete an elective. Taking classes during the summer can lighten your load during the academic year. Summer Sessions are designed to offer you short courses so that you will still have part of your summer study-free!


  • Numerous online course offerings allow you to take courses from home.
  • Courses held on campus are smaller, allowing for more interaction with the professor.
  • Marietta College faculty provide the same quality instruction in a condensed format.
  • Tuition is a discounted per credit hour rate compared to full-time academic year tuition.
  • Transient students, alumni and community members can take a course without formal application to the College.
  • An online course tutorial is available in case you are new to online learning.



  • Textbooks are required for online courses. Students who will be travelling outside of the United States are encouraged to purchase textbooks prior to leaving the country.
  • Most online courses are delivered through Moodle, which may not be fully functional through iPhones or iPads. Please make sure that you have access to a laptop or computer throughout the duration of your online course(s).
  • You will not be deregistered based on non-payment or lack of participation. If you decide not to take or complete a course after registration, you MUST contact the Records Office at to formally drop the course. See below for withdrawal and refund policy and deadlines.
