It may only be weeks into your spring semester, but many
universities are already offering students the chance to sign up for summer
classes. Here at NAU, summer class enrollment is now open.
Taking summer classes means earning as many as 16
credits between the spring and fall semesters. Summer classes are offered at a
local campus near you and many more conveniently offered online.
Not convinced? Here are five reasons why taking a summer
term class could be the right decision for you.
Reason 1: You Can
Snag That Hard-To-Get Class
Getting a spot in a popular class can be a struggle during
the fall and spring semesters, especially if it’s a degree pre-requisite or has
limited amount of seats open.
That’s the advantage of taking summer classes. Summer
term classes can often guarantee enrollment for that hard-to-get class,
allowing you to stay on track to earning your degree.
Reason #2: You’re
Closer To Graduating On Time—Or Early
Do you want one class to be the reason why you graduate a
semester or even a year later?
Stick to your time schedule. By taking summer classes, you
are more likely to earn your degree sooner and graduate.
Reason #3: You’ll Be
More Than Ready For The Fall Semester
Summer can be when you spend the time keeping your skills
sharp for your career and the upcoming fall semester—or not.
Summer classes allow you to solidify what you learned in the
spring semester so that you’re more than ready for your fall courses.
Reason #4: There’s A
Class You Need To Retake
Taking a summer class is a great way to keep from falling
behind, especially if a certain class requires more of your attention.
If you didn’t meet the grade standard for a pre-requisite or
if you genuinely want to improve your class grade, consider
retaking that class now during the summer term.
Reason #5: You Can Reduce
Your Course Load Next Semester
Already anxious about how many classes you need to take next
fall? Lighten your load by taking summer classes.
Taking summer classes now can mean having more time during
the fall semester to focus on your career and family without falling behind in earning
