Summer 2007 is Bigger & Better

Summer 2007 is Bigger & Better

Thousands of students have helped shape the direction of Summer 2007. More upper-division courses and financial aid are being offered as a direct response to student needs.

For the second year, a campus-wide student survey was conducted during the winter quarter to let students voice their preferences for summer quarter courses. More than 5,300 students responded, and 52 percent of those who responded indicated a desire for more upper-division classes in their major.  

“We are hopeful that students will take this opportunity to get ahead,” says Kathy Street, associate vice president of Enrollment & Management Services.  

Summer 2007 builds on the success of summer 2006 in meeting student needs and signals the university's commitment to increase summer course offerings and additional opportunities for financial aid and housing, Street says.

Summer registration is from May 7 through May 18. Summer enrollment is projected to be approximately 8,100 students.

Summer 2007 will feature:

  • More than 50 percent of classes offered at the 300 and 400 level classes         
  • Expanded course offerings based on student survey results   
  • Two five-week sessions and one ten-week session  
  • More than a $2 million reserve of grant, loan and work study funds has been set aside specifically for summer, including more than $900,000 in grant funds. (Students interested in financial aid should contact the Office of Financial Aid as soon as possible.)   
  • The ability for departments to submit requests to the Office of Financial Aid to employ their work-study students through the summer   
  • Housing availability
