Get Ahead with Summer Quarter

Earn college credits in 8 weeks at YVC

Summer courses at Yakima Valley College offer a flexible, convenient and affordable opportunity for individuals looking to achieve their professional or personal goals.

During Summer Quarter, YVC offers a wide range of asynchronous online classes, which do not have a specific meeting day or time, so that you can learn from anywhere and study when it’s most convenient for you. Some online courses meet during specific days and times.

In addition, in-person courses in some subjects are available on YVC’s Yakima and Grandview campuses.

Summer Quarter 2024 begins June 24 and ends August 13, meaning you’ll be able to earn college credits in only eight weeks, faster than the standard 10-week courses offered during other quarters at YVC.

Learn more about YVC summer course options and select “Class Search” or “Browse Classes” to view offerings by subject.

Summer Quarter registration takes place on a first-come, first-served basis and students can register through the second day of the quarter, June 25.

Continuing your education is an investment that doesn’t have to break the bank. YVC offers a variety of financial aid options, including for students who are unemployed, underemployed or low-income, as well as those who are looking to re-enter the workforce or train for an entirely new career.

Yakima Valley College offers a full-service financial aid office with experienced staff to help guide you. Learn more about funding options at YVC.

Senior citizens, 60 years of age or older, who are Washington state residents can take advantage of the Gold Card Program at YVC. This program allows seniors to attend state supported classes at a reduced cost on a space-available basis. Gold Card participants may enroll on the third day of the quarter or when the class has met at least once, whichever is later. Learn more about the Gold Card Program.
