Other Summer Opportunities

Discounted courses aren’t the only opportunities available during the summer months. The Research Experience for Undergraduates and Early Research Experience in E-Term programs offer unique chances for students to engage in high-quality research projects with faculty members that have the potential to change the world.

The Nuts & Bolts of Summer Courses

If you’re interested in summer college courses but are looking for somewhere to stay, we’ve got you covered. Residential Services offers summer housing for students at affordable rates. We can also help connect you with test proctors—whether through a test center, approved proctor, or online proctoring—to ensure a smooth, supportive experience during exams no matter where you take them.

Build Connections in Worcester and Beyond

Staying local for summer courses also gives students more access to the lively city we call home: Worcester. Connect with one of the dozens of tech startups and other local companies for potential internships, co-ops, or other networking opportunities; welcome high school students interested in STEM to campus and share your passions as part of the Frontiers program; and use the city as a whole to make memories as you focus on your studies and work toward your future.

Complete a Project During Summer

Summer is a great time to complete a project. For many students, leaving campus for a term during the academic year conflicts with other plans. Whether you are a student athlete, completing a double major or BS/MS degree, have your eye on a co-op, or hope to graduate early, summer can help you make the most of your college experience. Tuition for summer project experiences is reduced to 50 percent, making it a great value! Contact GEO ​for more information
