Why should I take Summer classes?

Taking Summer classes can help you reach your graduation goal faster, allow you to concentrate on one class at a time, and allow you to complete prerequisites before the start of the Fall semester. Summer classes are also a great way to save money, as Summer per-credit rates are less than Fall and Spring per-credit rates for regular classes. Summer financial aid is also available.

The sections listed below begin May 31st, so register ASAP!
