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.

While most colleges and universities offer summer semesters to 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.

“Our summer semester is an excellent opportunity for students looking to take a couple of additional courses,” said Stan Harrison, vice president for enrollment services. “Whether you’re a TWC student or a student coming home for the summer from another institution, our discounted rate and housing options are exceptional.”

In addition to the 70 traditional lecture courses, the college will be also be offering 13 online courses throughout the summer.

“We have expanded our online courses to include a May mini-term as well as the summer sessions,” said Suzanne Hine, vice president of academic affairs.

Taught at an accelerated pace, TWC’s discounted courses will be divided into four sessions, three sessions each in May, June, and July with a semester-length session running the duration of 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, director of enrollment.

Students taking nine credit hours throughout the summer will be eligible for free campus housing in Keith Hall.
