While most colleges and universities provide summer classes for their students, Tennessee Wesleyan College is offering more than just a science lab and a composition class. With more than 80 classes being taught in the classroom and online, TWC is expanding its summer programs to serve not only its own students but also students from other institutions who are interested in taking discounted summer courses to catch up or get ahead in their degree.

TWC’s summer term offers all students the opportunity to take discounted courses for $210 per credit hour with added bonuses such as accelerated course paces and free housing for students taking at least nine hours. Start dates for each of TWC’s mini-terms are May 6, June 3 and July 1 with the full summer session beginning May 6.

“Summer school at TWC offers our current students and students from our sister institutions the opportunity to get additional courses completed in a vibrant, yet relaxed atmosphere,” said Dr. Suzanne Hine, TWC vice president of academic affairs.

“Students may choose to complete courses in May, June, July or all three. The added benefit for students is free housing on campus once they have enrolled in nine or more credit hours. I know of no other place where students can have that added incentive.  At TWC, we want to serve all students in our region during the summer and provide free housing for those who want it.”

TWC’s summer term also offers current high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to get an early start in their college careers. In addition to the 70 traditional lecture courses that will be offered during TWC’s summer term, the college will also be offering 14 online courses throughout the summer.

“Our extensive online and in-seat summer course offerings allow students to accelerate their progress toward graduation while maintaining the small class sizes and quality instruction time that Tennessee Wesleyan is known for,” said Kara Fox, TWC director of enrollment.

Students taking nine credit hours throughout the summer will be eligible for free campus housing in Keith Hall. TWC students currently have access to registration for the summer term. Non-TWC students interested in taking TWC summer classes can begin registering April 2.
