CAMPBELLSVILLE, Ky. – Campbellsville University is offering summer classes as a way for students to get ahead and avoid the higher cost of tuition.
“Attending summer school gives a student the opportunity to either catch up or get ahead toward their graduation goal,” said Dave Walters, vice president for admissions and student services. “Taking two summer session classes for three summers would total 18 credit hours, which would be like an extra semester.”
The terms that are available are — May term: May 7-26; Early Summer Term: May 7-June 30; June Term: June 4-June 30; June/July Term: June 4-July 28; July Term: July 2-28; and Late Summer Term: July 2-Aug. 25.
Classes being offered this summer are in a variety of fields with several classes being offered online.
“Some students see the benefit of taking a summer session class to reduce their class load during the fall semester,” Walters said. “Another benefit is that it keeps students focused and the transition back after a summer break is easier to adjust to.”
Classes are $325 per credit hour, less than one half the price of a regular semester cost.
Campbellsville University is a widely acclaimed Kentucky-based Christian university with more than 3,500 students offering 63 undergraduate options, 17 master’s degrees, five postgraduate areas and eight pre-professional programs. The website for complete information is campbellsville.edu.
