Extending to Stay for Summer

If you are a spring semester student, why not stay for a summer session, or mix and match up to three sessions between DIS locations! DIS offers you a substantial discount for extending into the summer.

How to Apply to Extend for DIS Summer

As a current student at DIS, you can start the conversation to extend your stay by contacting DIS@DISabroad.org.

Note: You must be in good academic standing at DIS to extend.

What to Know About Academics for the Summer

During the summer at DIS Copenhagen and/or DIS Stockholm, you can choose from three-, four-, or seven-week sessions, or combine sessions to stay six, seven, and up to 10 weeks. You can earn from 3 up to twelve credits over the summer. The summer calendar makes it easy to mix and match sessions and stay for just the amount of time that is right for you.

You enroll in one course during each of sessions 1, 2, and 3, or you can enroll a studio-course package during the 4: Architecture & Design session. When applying to extend, you discuss course availability with the DIS North American office. View all course options here.

Housing Options

During the summer, several housing options are available. Find information about Housing during the summer here.

Note: DIS does not have housing available between the spring semester and beginning of Session 1.

Residence Permit

Depending on when you apply to extend your spring semester into summer, your visa extension will depend on several factors, such as your citizenship and if you traveled or studied abroad before coming to DIS. Please discuss these specifics with DIS staff, who are available to provide guidance through the process.

Note: Visa extensions may require an extra cost.
