Summer Term


Wellesley Residential Summer Programs have been canceled for Summer 2020. Wellesley will still conduct the entirety of Summer Term 2020 remotely. Instead of two four-week terms, Summer Term 2020 will now consist of a single 6-week term Monday, June 1 - Friday, July 10 (Friday, July 3, is considered a holiday for Independence Day). More information on Summer Term can be found here.

One 6-week Remote Term: June 1 - July 10
