  • Notify Admissions: fall 2024 students that want an early start with coursework in summer 2024 should notify Grace Marco (608-796-3013 and ghmarco@viterbo.edu) in Admissions as soon as possible. In your message, please include the course you'd like to take. Please, also mention if you would like summer housing. 
  • Registration deadlines: Some courses begin May 13, while others begin in July. To leave plenty of time for us to connect with you about your plans, confirm space in the course, and complete registration, please notify us at least a week in advance of the start of your course.  If approved for early start coursework, students will be notified and assisted with registration by a member of our Advising and Career Development team (608-796-3828 or acd@viterbo.edu). 
  • Costs: While your fall/spring financial aid wouldn't apply to these early start Summer 2024 courses, the courses are being offered at a significantly reduced tuition rate. 
    • Tuition: $310 per credit hour
    • Regular 2023-24 student activity and technology fees
    • Lab or studio fees, if applicable.
    • Books: costs vary based on the course, whether you seek new or used books, and if you elect to rent or purchase your books. More information can be found at the Viterbo University Bookstore.
    • Housing (optional): Summer apartment-style housing is available at a reduced rate, starting at $130 per week. Apply for summer housing by May 1.
