Interested in getting ahead over the summer? Then stay on course by taking advantage of Alvernia’s Summer Term. A large selection of graduate and undergraduate courses in online, blended, and classroom formats are available at several locations. All students, from Alvernia or other colleges/universities, are welcome to register for summer courses. The courses are accredited, and credits earned over the summer are readily transferable to other institutions.
Alvernia University’s School of Graduate and Adult Education offers Summer Term sessions in three accelerated formats with staggered start dates:
Mod 5: May 13-July 3
Mod 6: July 8- Aug. 22
Full Term: May 13- Aug. 22.
Both undergraduate and graduate courses are offered during all three sessions.
In order to be even more convenient and flexible, Summer Term is offered in three different course formats: Online, Blended, and Classroom, and are available closer to home at locations in Berks, Pottsville, and Philadelphia.
"Taking classes during Summer Term can help ambitious students avoid course overloading during regular spring and fall, while graduating sooner,” says Susan Haldeman, director of admissions for Alvernia’s School of Graduate and Adult Education.
And of course students who need to retake dropped or missed classes have that all-important opportunity to catch up. “Often, prerequisites — such as “Fundamentals of Criminal Justice” are popular in the summer because students want to concentrate on more difficult follow-up courses in the fall," says Susan.
Students can register for Summer Term classes as early as March 18, 2013. And Summer Term is open to students from other colleges, high school students, adult professionals, and life-long learners. And if you’re taking a course at AU, you’ll have full access to the library, gym, cafés, computer labs, and the new Campus Commons — complete with a two-story fitness center.
All courses are approved by the Department of Education of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. Additionally, Alvernia’s business courses are accredited by the Association of Collegiate Business Schools and Programs.
