Registration for Summer Term starts in November and will remain open until early May (closed during Christmas break). Self-register as soon as you decide to take a course, after consulting with your academic advisor. The minimum enrollment required for a class to be held is normally five to six students. Most classes start immediately after graduation and will generally be finished in June, so you still have time to work that great summer job or internship.
Tuition is $535 per credit hour ($2,140 for a 4 credit course), a reduced rate since financial aid is NOT available. Tuition for courses taken for enrichment only (audited without credit) is $268 per credit. There are fees associated with lab and field science or studio art courses ($174 for most courses).
The course experience
Courses are configured to require your full-time attention and are often intensive due to the condensed timeline. Because of this, it's recommended that most students should take only one course at a time. Consult with your academic advisor before registering for more than one class. Online courses require high-speed internet connection and a computer with the capacity to efficiently download and run any programs that may be used in the course.
