Summer College is open to students who want to minimize their fall workload, including adult learners who seek career advancement. All students are expected to have completed the established course prerequisites, as indicted on the schedule of classes. Academic credits earned will appear on an official La Roche College transcript. Visiting undergraduate students are required to seek the permission of their home registrar to ensure that courses taken are transferable to their home institution.

High school students may earn college credit through La Roche’s Scholar Credit Initiative Program (SCIP) to receive a discount on per-credit costs and get used to the college learning environment sooner. Classes are offered online and on campus, and include a wide variety of courses in history, English, languages and more.
