Guide to taking summer courses

Posted on 5/31/2021 7:49:51 PM by Anna Schmader

Taking summer courses can help you to catch up on credits, explore new courses, and keep you busy. One of the challenges some students notice is the simplified accelerated course. In the summer, Cabrini's standard 15-week class is structured to happen within about 8 weeks. Some students find this intimidating and see it as an added cost (but to help with this, Cabrini offers summer classes at half price). I recommend summer classes to anyone!

There are limited course options due to fewer students being enrolled during this time of year, but you can also consider taking some courses at a different institution and have them transferred to Cabrini. Like most important dates to keep in mind, the academic calendar will help you track the dates for Cabrini's summer courses. For students already enrolled at Cabrini, you can register for summer classes through the portal. For visiting students wanting to take a course at Cabrini, you must contact the Registrars office at registrar@cabrini.edu, and someone will guide you through the process.

Once you’re registered and scheduled, you proceed with the class as if it were in the Fall or Spring semester. Some courses you can take online; others may require you to attend in person. There is still a syllabus, deadlines, assignments, projects, etc. Summer classes aren’t for everyone, but I can say that I loved enrolling in them. I took summer classes for three years on top of having one-two summer jobs. 

Summer courses taught me how significant time management is and how to balance school work and social life.
