For many students, taking summer courses is a great way to obtain credits. Summer classes at Millersville are offered in three sessions. Each session is treated as a different term. The duration of each session varies. Millersville offers four, five, nine, and ten week sessions. The University recommends a student take no more than two classes in one session.
Not all classes are offered during the summer sessions. The Registrar’s website contains a bulletin with all the classes available. Academic advisors can be helpful in deciding which course(s) to take during a summer session. Classes are held Monday through Friday, Monday through Thursday, Monday through Wednesday, Tuesday and Thursday, and one night a week; depending on which session a student enters.
Some summer courses are also offered online, which is helpful for students who cannot be on campus. Information about online courses is available at http://www.millersville.edu/gps/distancelearning/courses. Not all of the courses are available online.
Housing is available on campus during the summer sessions.
