Summer School July 4 - August 1
Registration for summer school opens May 1. Closes July 4.
Summer School runs July 4- August 1 (Diploma exams start August 1)
Figuring out time required to complete a summer course? Summer School will require students to spend as much time learning in the compressed four week period as they would spend in the classroom during the semester. the general rule of thumb is a 5 credit course requires 125 hours. Students have one month to complete the course. They should plan to be working on the course 5 hours a day if they plan to work weekdays and less if they pan to work weekdays and weekends.
Getting Online Orientation: Please note that the Getting Online course is required for all students who have not completed this 3 credit online orientation. This prepares the students for learning how to be successful online and is a required prerequisite for all online courses. Our data shows us that students successfully complete after 14-16 log ins who spend an hour or more with each log in. If students log in every day and work for an hour they can complete this course in two weeks. (Students who take longer, interestingly enough still log in between 14-16 times but spread their completion time over a longer period of time). This course must be completed by July 11.
No courses will be added to a student registration after July 12 for summer completion.
