Summer Session

Barton College’s Summer Session is open to Barton College students, students from other colleges and universities, teachers renewing licensure, high school graduates accelerating their college programs, and individuals in the community pursuing personal interests in the liberal arts. The normal course load allowed for a summer term is nine (9) semester hours. However, any student may take ten (10) hours if the course load includes a four-hour science course or any one-hour course. The College reserves the right to cancel any course for which fewer than seven students enroll. Day classes meet Monday through Thursday unless otherwise specified.


Individuals who wish to take classes during Summer Session must have been enrolled at Barton College for the spring semester of the same academic year. Otherwise, they must complete a Summer Session application. The Summer Session application may be obtained here and should be returned to the Office of Admissions, Barton College, Post Office Box 5000, Wilson, North Carolina 27893-7000 or simply call 800-767-6305.
