May & Summer Term

Learn What You Love!

May Term is Westminster's intensive semester: a month of offbeat and inspiring classes, laid-back trips around Utah and adventures outside of the U.S. After a year of hitting the books, May Term is a truly unique experience taking you outside of the classroom and leading you to discoveries about yourself and the world. And the best part is that tuition is free (you just pay the trip expenses.) Payment of full-time tuition for Fall Semester 2014 earns two discounted hours for May Term or Summer 2015. Payment of full-time tuition for Spring Semester 2014 earns two two discounted hours for May Term or Summer 2015.
