Why Take Summer Courses?
Summer is the perfect season for enjoying warm weather and longer days, but it also provides an opportunity to enhance your academic skills. By taking advantage of semester No. 3, it’s possible to lighten your load in semesters 1 and 2.
Classes are offered in four-week sessions. The reduced course load in the summer allows you to focus your attention on a particular class.
Internships & Research
Summer is a great time to complete an internship or research project, without taking time away from classes during the fall or spring. Get a global experience during the summer with a study abroad experience.
Smaller Class Sizes
Class sizes are typically smaller during the summer, increasing student-professor interaction. Take advantage of more individualized attention from your professor and more engagement with your classmates.
Reduce Student Loans
Students who attend summer classes often graduate with less debt.
Summer is a great time to catch up! Many prerequisite and general education courses are offered during the summer semester. Work ahead or lighten your load for the fall or spring semester.
