  2. Choose any of the summer terms in the "term" drop down (MayTerm or any term with "Summer" in the name) to find courses that are offered. You are not required to log on to SpartanWeb to search for courses.
  3. (Not currently available.) You can also view a complete list of all summer courses sorted by discipline.

Students do not have to get their advisor to clear them for any summer courses if a continuing UT student; however, it is suggested students consult with their advisor before registering in a course to ensure it fits in their program of study.

If you don't see the course you want or have a suggestion for a summer course, email

Hybrid courses Combination of in-classroom and online instructional experiences more » close »

Hybrid classes combine in-classroom and online instructional experiences. To search for hybrid classes, select HY in the "Method" window on SpartanWeb "Live Course Search." Hybrid classes meet in the classroom for about half as many hours as traditional full face-to-face classes with the other half conducted via Blackboard online. See the course NOTES for any special meeting dates and requirements.

Compact residency hybrid courses

These specially formatted hybrid courses meet on campus during the first two weeks of the term only, and the remainder of the class is conducted online. Compact residency courses are designated by section HX and meet more often during the first two weeks of the term than a traditional course, so students should consult the "notes" section of the course on SpartanWeb for these meeting days.

Wait lists When a desired summer course is full more » close »

Students are encouraged to go on the wait list in those instances when a desired course is full. Wait lists are monitored daily, and students who meet all course requirements are automatically registered in the course if a seat opens up. The student on the wait list with the highest number of completed credit hours will be the first to receive the next available seat. Wait lists in the summer remain active until the Thursday before the start of classes in each respective summer term. If no seats open up, students on the wait list are notified when the list closed.

Financial Services Summer tuition, fees and financial aid more » close »

Summer tuition and fees will be posted on or before April 1.

Financial aid is very limited during the summer. Students who wish to apply and qualify for summer financial aid should talk with a financial aid counselor as early as possible. Contact the Financial Aid Office at (813) 253-6219 or to explore your options. New students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

On campus summer housing Apply for campus housing more » close »

Students who wish to live in the residence hall during the summer must be attending class in the summer or be employed on campus. Use the online Summer Housing Form to request a residence hall assignment during one or several summer terms.

NOTE: If you are taking a hybrid course that meets on campus only during the first two weeks of the term (section HX courses) and you plan to stay in the dorm for only those two weeks, put a message in ADDITIONAL INFORMATION on the form indicating you plan to check out early. You will be refunded the portion of your housing fee for the time you were not in residence.

For more information about on-campus or off-campus summer housing contact the Office of Residence Life.
