Consider Your Options

Summer School constitutes an integral part of the university's year-round program. The principal academic terms of summer are two five-week sessions and one 10-week session. A variety of courses are offered for students who wish to accelerate their progress toward graduation, to supplement the academic load carried during the regular terms, or to remove grade deficiencies.

In addition, courses are offered for K-12 school teachers to renew or change fields of certification.

Credit hours earned during the summer are excluded from the fifty percent (50%) tuition surcharge imposed on students who take more than 140 credit hours to complete a baccalaureate degree in a four-year program. (What is a Tuition Surcharge?)
