Summer Term for Transfer Students

All incoming Fall 2021 deposited transfer students are eligible for a tuition-free course in one of the Summer Terms.

The College is offering this special opportunity in response to the financial challenges that many students and families have experienced over the past year due to the coronavirus. Transfer students must be admitted and submit their enrollment deposit before registering for a class.

The instructional modes for the summer sessions will depend on the developing health situation.

Get ahead or catch up on courses

Our summer terms offer exciting and challenging courses taught by our top faculty. Taking classes during the summer gives you the ability to catch up on a college credit, get ahead of the game, or even supercharge your writing.
