Determine if Summer Classes Are Right For You

Your Study Habits

Summer classes are more accelerated and therefore require a significant time commitment in order to be successful. If you tend to struggle with time management or have difficulty staying on top of schoolwork, a summer class is not recommended.

Your Financial Aid Eligibility

While financial aid can be used to pay for summer courses, there are restrictions. Some forms of financial aid require you to be enrolled for a certain number of summer hours before aid can be awarded. Also, using financial aid during the summer terms can reduce the amount of aid you have available for the fall and spring semesters. Financial aid is not automatically awarded for summer. You must complete a FAFSA and should speak with a financial aid specialist to make sure you know how your future aid will be affected.
