Spring and summer students enjoy flexible class options lasting a couple of weeks to a couple months, and choose to start early for a number of reasons, including: ■■ getting a head start on your degree program, ■■ focusing on a tough class you want to get out of the way, or ■■ completing a prerequisite class you need to move forward in your degree. Interested? Choose the 2020 Spring Term (May–June) or 2020 Summer Term (July–August) when applying for admission.
