Delaware Valley College is pleased to announce a tuition program for Summer 2014 where students taking multiple undergraduate courses may be eligible for a 50% benefit. The eligibility requirements are:

  • Students must be enrolled in more than one course at the undergraduate level in any combination of the three summer terms (2014/SU, 2014/S1, and/or 2014/S2).
  • The first course will be charged full tuition; the second course will be charged 50% tuition; the third course will be charged full tuition; the fourth course will be charged 50% tuition and so on.
  • The reduced course(s) must be of equal or lesser credits than the full tuition course.
  • Courses with separate labs count as two courses, with the lab always being considered the second course.
  • The program cannot be combined with any other discounts or incentives (including but not limited to corporate discount programs, ASPiRE degree completion courses, MSA).
  • Experiential learning courses, noncredit courses, graduate and the middle and high school program courses are not eligible for the program.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. How will the Summer Advantage show on my invoice? You will see a credit titled "Summer Advantage" for the reduced amount on your invoice.
  2. What happens with the fees? Fees are not affected by the Advantage Program. You will continue to be charged per the fee schedule.
  3. Do I have to register for all of the courses at the same time? No.
  4. I have financial aid for my summer courses, will this be affected? It depends on the type and amount of the financial aid awards you receive. In the majority of cases there should be no impact on financial aid awards. All students with awards and Summer Advantage will be issued a financial aid award letter showing the Summer Advantage amount and other aid awards.  Students can also view award letters online.
  5. What happens if I drop one of my courses? If you drop your first course, you will be charged for that course per the refund policy and the cost of the second course will no longer be reduced.
  6. What happens if I withdraw from one of my courses? Officially withdrawing from a course after the add/drop period does not change invoicing. No adjustments will be made.
  7. What is the difference between a drop and a withdraw? A course drop will remove the course from your academic record. Drops occur before or during the drop/add period. A course withdrawal will appear on your academic record with a grade of “W” for the course. Withdrawals take place after the drop/add period. Course withdrawals do not result in a refund under the refund policy.
