University of Oklahoma Move-In 2019 — All you need to know!Sooner Parents
Is your student looking for a way to jump start their college career this summer? If so, here are the most noted benefits of summer classes that our students enjoy each year.
Summer session classes are a great way to complete required courses in order to get a jump on the fall semester and stay on track to complete their degree! Whether they are passionate about the subject matter, or simply want to complete the requirement quickly, your student will be well prepared for upcoming academic year.
By continuing their education in the summer, students can actually save money over the course of their academic career. Some students are able to reduce their college career by one to two semesters and save all the money that goes along with that — room and board, college fees, meal plans, and more.
Your student will have the unique opportunity to build a new community of friends and stronger relationships with university professors. Summer session classes typically have smaller class sizes, which provides for more networking and dialogue in the classroom. By jumping into summer session classes, your student will build lasting relationships with classmates and faculty that extend beyond the classroom. Parking is also plentiful, which is a real plus!
If your student needs a boost for their GPA, summer session classes provide an intensive format so they can devote their full attention to those challenging courses. This often leads to higher confidence and a stronger foundation to tackle the next academic semester and more advanced classes.
Summer session classes are offered in a variety of delivery formats — online, hybrid, lecture — so your student has options between their job, vacation schedule, or academics. With accelerated formats and three different sessions over the summer, they can choose the schedule that best fits their busy lifestyle. Some students even choose to live on campus throughout the summer and the university now proudly offers a summer meal plan.
