Credits Easily Transferrable

It also offers course credits for students who are enrolled at different institutions. If you live close to our campus and want to get ahead during the summer months, you too can take advantage of our summer offerings since our credits are easily transferrable to other institutions. If you aren’t going to be near your college or university this summer, DelVal makes it easy for visiting college students to make the most of their summer.

Retake a Class or Get Ahead
It’s easy to end up with a displeasing grade, or even a failing one, in a certain class at the end of one of your semesters. If you know you can do better and want to work toward improving that grade, you can do so this summer at DelVal. And this way you won’t have to allocate time and space in your course schedule during your fall and spring semesters.

You can retake the course to improve your GPA, keep you in good academic standing, and boost your transcript. 

Even if you are in good academic standing but are trying to get ahead in your education, Summer College at DelVal is the perfect opportunity to gain credits that go toward your degree without overloading your schedule during the standard academic semesters. This is extremely advantageous for students with rigorous major and minor requirements or for students who are just trying to get a leg up on their total number of credits.

Lighter Course Load During Fall/Spring Semesters
When you enroll at DelVal for a summer course, no matter if you decide on the full 12-week program or one of the two six-week programs, you accumulate credits that go toward your graduation requirements. Freshman through rising seniors who choose this method will experience significant long-term benefits, including a lighter course load during your fall and spring semesters. 

Throughout your college career, you take courses needed to graduate. The more you take per semester, the fewer you’ll have left as you progress in your studies. By taking one of your required courses in the summer, you’ll end up having fewer courses to take during your fall and spring semesters, which is beneficial for seniors who want to have free time for an internship, to complete job and graduate school applications and prepare for graduation.
