For Faculty

Why Teach a Summer Session Class?

Students benefit from additional opportunities to take coursework during the summer and can make considerable progress toward graduation. Students who take high demand classes in Summer Session open seats for others during the fall and spring semesters. 

Faculty who have never taught in Summer Session before are welcome to contact the Summer Session Coordinator with any questions or to schedule a brief orientation.
