“Taking summer classes is great! It feels more relaxed.
You can focus on one or two classes at a time and you
finish them in just a few weeks."

Classes offered

“I took spring and summer classes before my first fall term
to get a feeling for how university classes worked and so I
could take a lighter course load in the fall and winter terms
without getting behind on credits.”
