Are you a current CSU student looking to stay on track to graduate? Or is summer the ideal time for you to begin at or return to CSU?
Summer courses cover the same information and are taught by the same professors as those held during the fall and spring semesters. Summer students also receive the same quality of support as fall and spring students.
Get ahead this summer!
Summer courses are taught in a compressed time frame and offer many benefits. Here are 10 reasons you should register for summer today:
- Stay connected with the campus community, including faculty members who could end up becoming long-term mentors.
- Receive more individualized attention from faculty because of smaller classes and fewer students.
- Take a challenging course head-on, without the usual stresses of a regular semester load.
- Concentrate more completely on one or two classes to raise your GPA.
- Secure a place in a popular class that might usually have a waiting list.
- Earn additional credits toward a double major, minor, certificate or endorsement while still graduating when you planned.
- Catch up on earning credits if you have changed majors midway through your degree.
- Graduate faster and enter the professional world, thereby earning a salary sooner.
- Coming home to Columbus for the summer? Take a class at CSU and transfer the credits back to your institution.
- Financial aid is available to qualified students.
