We're for Making the Most of Summer
Registration has begun for State Summester 2016. State Summester gives you many opportunities to take summer courses online or on campus.
You can choose from hundreds of courses in either of two main sessions:
Here are great reasons to take summer classes:
- Getting done faster or getting back on your completion timeline. An extra semester, plus lost income from a first job, can cost you up to $25,000.
- To maintain a scholarship. Those with state scholarships such as the 21st Century Scholar Program and Frank O’Bannon grant must complete 30 hours in a calendar year (including summer) to keep their full scholarship.
- You may be eligible for aid to help pay for it.
- Three classes for the price of two in a single summer term (i.e., 9 hours for the price of 6).
- You can live on campus or attend from anywhere for courses offered online.
- The Student Employment Office can assist in helping you find a summer job if you desire that as well.
- You can take a class at another institution which can count toward your degree if confirmed by your advisor, although be aware that it won’t count toward your GPA.
Need to live on campus for the summer session? Residence halls are open for State Summester. Remember, if you have any questions about what courses to consider for summer sessions, contact your academic advisor.
