 Intersession May 2019

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 will already be living on campus for summer school June 1 to July 31. Do I have to pay extra to live on campus during the May 2019 Intercession?

If you submit the Summer 2019 Housing Contract Lease Agreement to live in campus housing June 1-July 31, there is no additional housing charge for you to live in campus housing during the May 2019 Intercession, but please call Housing & Residence Life at 601-266-4783 between the hours of 8-5 M-F to reserve your May Intercession spot. If you will not live in campus housing June 1-July 31 and you want to live in campus housing during the May Intercession, the housing fee is $495.


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.
