Trinity Western University

Accelerated Summer Courses

A variety of TWU Extension accelerated courses occur in the summer when the main University campus operates at a slower pace. The summer schedule begins after April graduation and continues until September, utilizing a variety of face-to-face and online formats. Open registration provides a hassle-free process for visiting students who wish to transfer credits back to their primary institution. Adult learners use the summer accelerated course program to complete courses that are necessary for full standing in a degree completion or certificate program. Current university students can use accelerated courses to catch up on missed credits, retake courses that were not passed, take unique courses that allow for a high level of student-to-faculty engagement and full time immersion at a retreat centre or camp that would not be possible during the academic year. Students taking accelerated courses of study also enjoy smaller classes, are able to focus on one discipline at a time, and realize their plan to finish university on time or ahead of schedule. TWU’s unique summer scheduling provides opportunities for a custom-designed summer of study, work, travel, retreat, and missions options. Courses are offered in one, three, or six-week session intensive learning formats. For more information, visit
