The VMI Summer Session facilitates cadets' progression toward degree completion by offering courses for academic credit during the summer, consistent with the Academic Program Mission. Specific goals include:
- To enhance cadet retention and optimize graduation rates.
- To provide opportunities for cadets to enrich their education.
- To enable cadets to attend the VMI Summer Session and also attend ROTC summer camps, engage in internships, and earn income.
The primary objectives of the Summer Session are to:
- Offer courses of academic rigor consistent with the standards during the regular academic year.
- Provide cadets with the opportunity to meet VMI readmission standards, curricular requirements, scholarship requirements, and athletic eligibility requirements by enabling them to earn credit for subjects in which they stand deficient.
- Facilitate transfer from one curriculum to another.
- Enable VMI cadets to receive credit for courses in advance of their class.
- Provide opportunities for cadets to enrich their education by earning multiple majors and/or minors and by participating in undergraduate research, study aboard, and internship experiences.
- Offer academic support activities.
- Operate the Summer Session in a manner that is fiscally self-sustaining.
