The following economics courses will be taught this summer either online or on campus: Econ 101, Econ 102, Econ 301, Econ 302, Econ 310, Econ 467 and Econ 522.
For details about each class and when they will be taught, visit our Undergraduate Courses page.
All procedures apply to our online and in-classroom courses. Continuing UW-Madison students enroll in our summer courses in the exact same way they do for fall and spring term courses.
If you are enrolling in a summer course as an admitted but yet unmatriculated student, here’s how you can enroll in online courses before the Fall term, before you start classes on campus. The Admissions Office does discourage it because you won’t have completed SOAR advising yet, but there are many good reasons to take our Econ Principles courses before you start on campus.
