Why Take summer Classes?
Here are some benefits to taking a summer session for you to consider:
While it’s true that course selections may be more limited during the summer, you may not have to fight your way into a spot for what is being offered.
This means that even those highly coveted classes will have a lot more availability, which makes it much easier to take popular courses that are required for your degree.
Smaller Classes/Course Load
Because fewer students opt for summer sessions, it also often means smaller classes.
USC Aiken offers a number of online courses as well (flip-flops optional)!
Students may enroll in one Maymester course, and up to two courses + labs in both the June and July sessions.
Most summer sessions are offered in a condensed period of time, so scheduling classes and sufficient time for assignments must be considered.
You might save money, especially if you are attending a private college.
Knock out a required course at USC Aiken at a fraction of the cost and transfer the credits to your home school (be sure to confirm your class selections with your advisor!).
This could mean paying hundreds of dollars less out of pocket and possibly even lowering your future student loan debt.
