Why should you take a summer course?

Do not miss out on your chance to maximize your summer by taking summer courses. Taking summer courses is an excellent option to help relieve some of the stress that comes along with your other semesters. Taking summer courses can help you reach your graduation goal faster and more flexibly, concentrate on one class at a time, and complete prerequisites before fall semester. Summer classes are a great way to save money, since summer per-credit rates are less than fall and spring per-credit rates for regular fee classes and programs! Summer financial aid is also available.
