Summer 2024 - 4-week, fully online Mini-Terms

This summer, Waldorf University is pleased to offer students from schools across the country access to several 3 credit hour courses students can take in 4 weeks. Registration is now open for two terms:

  1. 5D24 - classes start May 15 and conclude June 11.
  2. 1D25 - classes start July 10 and conclude August 6.

What is a Mini-Term?

A 4-week Mini-Term is a unique opportunity to participate in a compact, 4-week course offered to traditional college students during the summer break. 4-week Mini-Term students do not have to attend Waldorf University during spring or fall terms to participate.

Textbooks and course materials are provided at no cost to the student and there is no set class time required. Students can login at times convenient to their schedules.

All classes are offered entirely online through Waldorf University. Students will need to ensure internet access over the entire term.

Why Take a 4-week Mini-Term?

  • Earn quick credits from a Higher Learning Commission (HLC) accredited institution
  • To work ahead in your field of study
  • To lighten your future semester workloads
  • To repeat course work for a timely graduation
  • To maintain athletic eligibility

Important Info for This Summer's Terms:

  • Please confirm with your advisor at your home institution that the credit you receive from this course will transfer appropriately. 
  • The 4-week Mini-Term course cost is $710. Financial aid is not accepted for these terms.
  • Due to the condensed nature of these courses and the time required for each course, students are limited to two courses per term. Students can enroll in both terms, if desired, for a maximum of 12 total credit hours this summer.
