Summer is a great time for students to continue advancing their educational and career prospects. Your student may decide to stay on campus over the summer for many reasons, including on-campus job opportunities, internships and summer courses. Study abroad programs can also provide a semester of cultural enrichment and broaden a student’s global perspective.
Students may plan to take classes over the summer to graduate early, take a course not available in the long semester, or just explore a new subject. Here are some things your student should consider when planning to enroll in summer courses:
- Nine credit hours is considered full-time status for undergraduate students in the summer semester.
- Content in summer courses is more intense due to a shorter time span, so regular attendance is crucial to success.
- Students taking classes at another institution in the summer are encouraged to make sure that the credits and grades will transfer.
