How to get Ahead with Summer Classes


Posted on May 26, 2015 by Delaware Valley University .

As a student at Delaware Valley University, you’re working toward completing your educational requirements so you can graduate and earn your degree. This is no easy task, and your four-year schedule will be filled with numerous required courses and electives. However, there’s a way that you can lighten your course load during your academic semesters at DelVal.

With summer registration at DelVal, students can enroll in their required courses and take them for credit over the summer. Students from other colleges or universities can also enroll in these courses and have their credits easily transferred over to their current institution. 

Read on to learn how you can get ahead with summer classes at DelVal.

Summer Terms
The summer courses at DelVal are split into three terms. There’s one 12-week session and two six-week sessions (Summer I and Summer II). You can choose which session best fits your summer schedule and the classes you want to take. If you want to take only one class, one of the two six-week summer sessions is right for you. If you’re interested in taking multiple courses, the 12-week session will give you ample time.

A Variety of Course Offerings
When you sign up for summer courses at DelVal, you’ll find that they cover a wide variety of subjects. All majors have different core curriculums, but with the variety of courses offered during the summer, there’s something for all of our students. 

If you’re required to complete a specific number of liberal arts credits for graduation, you can find the courses you need through our summer program. Or maybe you need to fulfill a science requirement in biology or chemistry and want to get it out of the way during the summer. The variety of courses offered during DelVal’s summer sessions makes it easy for students to enroll in ones that will allow them to secure credits for graduation.

Free Up Your Schedule
When you take courses over the summer, you reduce the amount of credits you need to take during the regular semesters. In turn, this frees up time for you in the long run. For example, students who have a required English course can take it over the summer and then won’t have to worry about it the following fall or spring. 

Thinking long term, this is extremely beneficial because when your senior year comes around, you’ll have a lighter course load, giving you time to job hunt, study for your finals and prepare for graduation.

Summer courses at DelVal are a great way for students to get ahead with their course load and free up their schedules during their final semesters before graduation. Registration is easy and you can search through the DelVal course catalog to find classes you can take during one of our summer terms.
