August 2019 Intersession


 August 2019 Intersession

Note: Students may take only one intersession class per semester.

Intersession FAQ 

What are intersession classes?

Intersession classes are full credit courses that meet for three weeks in between semesters, three hours a day Monday through Friday. Because of the intense schedule, students may only enroll in one intersession class per semester.

How are they different from regular classes?

Because of the short time period, classes are intense and require a significant amount of work outside the classroom. Many students find that being immersed in a single subject they are studying every day helps them learn and retain better.

How much do they cost?

Tuition is included in full-time tuition provided you are within the 12-19 hour window the following semester, but there is a $20 per credit hour course fee, so a 3-credit intersession course costs $60, which is folded in to your charges for the following semester. If you are on financial aid, be sure to speak to a financial aid counselor about your options for intersession courses.

 I live on campus. What about room and board?

Great news! If you live on campus, have a meal plan, and are enrolled in at least one intersession class, there will be no additional charges for housing or meals for the three weeks that you are taking your intersession course.

 Who should take an intersession course?

There are many reasons to take an intersession course. Students may have fallen behind or switched majors and need an extra class to stay on track for timely graduation. They may want to reduce their course load the following semester so they have more time to focus on each class. They may have had difficulty passing a course, and want to retake it in an immersive atmosphere without the distraction of 3–5 other classes.
