Help Your Student Design A Productive Summer

Taking a class during one or both summer sessions can

  • offer an encouraging boost to students getting ahead or catching up on required coursework, 
  • lighten academic loads for a fall and/or spring semester and reduce time to graduation, and 
  • create opportunities for students to take elective courses expanding their marketable skills and competencies for job and graduate school applications

Encourage your student to examine the class schedule, consider options, and consult with their academic advisor.

Class Schedule and Summer Sessions Dates

    • If a non-degree student intends to complete courses at App State to count for their degree requirements at their parent institution*, they are advised, 1) to consult with the parent institution before applying to App State, and 2) to ensure credits earned from App State will count for their degree requirements  (*A student’s parent institution is the school from which they intend to earn their degree.)
    • There are two types of non-degree students; non-degree students who have attended App State and non-degree students who have not attended App State before now 
  • First Year and Transfer Students: Newly admitted students for Fall may contact their Admissions Counselor to make arrangements for eligibility to enroll in a Summer course, either Summer 1 or Summer 2.
