Pierpont offers summer sessions each year. Courses are offered at a wide variety of times and locations to accommodate both traditional and nontraditional schedules including both day and evening offerings at the Fairmont Locust Avenue Campus, the Caperton Center and other regional locations. Class terms may include but not limited to two 5-week sessions, a 10-week session and an 8-week Weekend College session. Virtual courses and intensive courses are also available.

The requirements for admission and the character of the work required are the same for the summer session as the regular academic year.
