Information About Spring Semester and Summer

Dear Pitzer Students:

Welcome back for spring semester 2021! Although the semester has just begun, I write to call your attention to information and deadlines that may impact your plans for the remainder of the academic year, including this summer.

  1. First, students who plan to select the 3+1 enrollment option for this semester (enrolling in 3.0 credits for spring and 1.0 credits in Pitzer’s Summer Session), must make that selection by this Friday, February 5, 2021. This new option is only available for spring enrollment of 3.0 credits and 1 summer class. Instructions for selecting this option and FAQs about it are available at:
  2. Second, as you are probably aware, the undergraduate Claremont Colleges have adopted a spring semester schedule that includes contiguous days of spring break from March 8-12, 2021. The final day of classes for all students is May 7, 2021, and final exams for all students take place May 10-14, 2021. The academic calendar can be found at:
  3. Third, I want to inform you that the Pitzer faculty recently amended the modification to the transfer credit policy for this year.  Specifically, students are allowed to transfer up to a total of 2.0 Pitzer credits from an institution of higher education for coursework completed during the entire 2020-2021 academic year, including summer 2021. The procedures for obtaining approvals for transfer credits and the overall transfer credit limit are unchanged.  For more information on transfer credits:
  4. Finally, I am pleased to provide information on Pitzer’s Summer Session. Pitzer College will once again offer a Summer Session that includes a wide range of class offerings and at a discounted tuition price. The session is scheduled for May 24-July 2, 2021 and the courses will be offered online.  See the links below for additional information on this year’s Summer Session:
