Can you take the two classes you need at a different university over the summer?

@Sammers:  Don’t freak out over something that hasn’t happened yet.

If I were you, I’d come up with a plan A (ideal) and a plan B for if the course isn’t offered in the summer. Plan B isn’t ideal, but at least you’ll have some sort of plan in place as to what you can do if it course isn’t offered. Take it somewhere else as PP suggested, or figure out what you will do in that extra year to mitigate some of the damage.

As far as the wedding goes, plan as much as you can as far in advance as you can.

I would talk to your advisor if I were you… they see this sort of thing all the time and she might be able to ease your worries a bit (like maybe these courses ARE popular in the summer).

@Sammers:  my Fiance ran into something similar. His college forced him to delay his graduation for an entire year over a 3 credit class :/ Not very encouraging I know. My university had this thing called a 4 year graduation garantee that you could sign at any point that basically said if you promise to graduate in 4 years we will garantee the you can get the classes you need to do so. Does your college have anything remotely similar? Otherwise the best you can do is hope those summer classes stay open and available. You can talk to your advisor about how important those classes are to you. Do you have any friends at the same point in the program? Could you convince them to sign up for the classes with you? Are there any other universities that for sure offer summer courses that could be transfered in in place of the ones your university offers?

Talk to your advisor – I had a similar situation this semester, I thought I wasn’t going to graduate because they were not offering ANY classes in my first major that I needed and they never offer any over summer but lo and behold, they added both classes I needed. They could add them and if you ask your advisor or bother the dean you might be able to get it to work.
