Hit the Books This Summer

Students have the opportunity to earn three credits in six weeks during one of three summer sessions. This helps students get ahead in their degree, make up classes, or graduate early. The first session is May 20-June 21, the second is June 24- July 26 and the third is July 29-Aug. 30. Over one hundred sections of undergraduate classes as well as over one hundred sections of graduate classes are available this summer.

Summer classes run in the morning, afternoon, and evening. The time options for these classes are 9 a.m. through 1 p.m. (morning classes), 1:15 p.m. through 5:15 p.m. (afternoon classes), and 5:30 through 9:30 p.m. (evening classes). Students are able to take courses during multiple sessions throughout the summer. In the summer classes, students are also able to add, drop, and withdraw from classes just like during the regular school year.

During the summer sessions, courses are open to both current students as well as students from other colleges and universities. For undergraduate students, the price is $1,115 per credit and for graduate classes the price is $1,225 per credit; both with an additional charge of $469 in university fees.

To see the list of classes being offered, students can go to the “Summer Courses” tab on www.liu.edu, and click on “View Course Schedule.”
