Summer Session

VMI Summer Session facilitates cadet progression toward degree completion by offering courses for academic credit during the summer.

Summer Session at VMI provides the opportunity for cadets to meet curricular, scholarship, athletic, or readmission standards, by allowing them to earn credit for subjects in which they stand deficient or by receiving credit for courses in advance of their class. Summer study allows cadets to broaden their education by earning a double major or minor and facilitates transfer from one curriculum to another.

VMI cadets, graduates of accredited secondary schools, and students in good standing at other colleges may attend. High school students who have been promoted to the twelfth grade and have the written approval of their principal are also eligible to attend.

Registration for the 2024 Summer Session will open on April 15.
