The different departments on campus decide the course schedule for each semester, including summer semester.

Course schedule

The summer semester course schedule went up on Jan. 21 this year and it can be found on Wings Express, according to Amy Chin, academic advisor.

There are different groups for registering for summer courses based on years of college education and academic standing. Some groups have priority scheduling over others.

Students can find their group and corresponding registration date on Wings Express, according to Chin.

The summer semester is 12 weeks long but is broken into A-Term and B-Term.

Some courses are only one term long, meaning they are for six weeks. Some courses are both terms long, meaning they are the full semester’s length of weeks, according to Chin.

“Summer classes usually, especially if they’re A-Term or B-Term, they will cover the same amount of material as you would in a Fall or Spring class but it’s a lot more condensed. As a student it’s important to pay attention to your workload and your outside commitments,” said Chin. “You might have, maybe, a test once a month in a traditional Fall or Spring course but in a Summer course you might have a test once a week. It’s just important to look at your course-load and make sure you’re not going to overcommit yourself.”

The plan of action

Students can select a four-year payment plan for Summer and the enrollment dates from April 1 to May 14 have a down payment of five percent.

The enrollment dates from May 15 to May 31 have a down payment of 37 percent. The application fee is listed as either $25 or $50, according to Raider Connect.
