This summer, the University of Pittsburgh is offering courses to Pitt students, guest students, and high school students. Courses run 4 weeks, 6 weeks, or 12 weeks. Registration began on February 18, 2013, so hurry and sign up! Classes are being offered through the College of General Studies, the Dietrich School of the Arts and Sciences, and Pitt’s University Honors College. Other courses are also available. Housing is available on-campus for undergraduate students.
Taking summer courses is a great way to get caught up on needed general education courses or to get a head start on core classes. The summer schedule is designed to allow students the ability to participate in two classes back-to-back. The flexible class schedule also affords students the opportunity to schedule classes around jobs, vacations, and other life activities. Most colleges and universities will transfer credits earned from these courses (University of Pittsburgh, 2013).
Another advantage to these summer classes is that high school students can get a taste of college life and what will be expected of them academically. These students can also use credits earned toward their college degree. For high school student registration, contact the university’s Accelerated High School office at email@example.com.
Use summer time wisely without missing a vacation. Summer courses will help students attain their degree faster or give them an idea of college life. With many classes offered at differing times, students can find the courses they need to get ahead.
