Summer Classes Let Current Students Catch Up, Explore or Get Ahead
By Krista Warner, Coordinator of Summer Sessions
The academic year may be coming to an end, but you can count on a busy campus this summer. Xavier offers a comprehensive selection of summer courses and workshops, enabling current students to stay on campus, and work and study in Cincinnati. In fact, students who now live on campus and decide to take summer classes can stay in their current rooms.
Xavier offers five Summer Sessions starting May 18, including a special two-week intersession that’s scheduled for May 11-22. Registration is now open, and current students can simply register for classes through the MyXU portal.
Taking summer classes enables many students to catch up or get ahead on courses they need to finish degrees on time. Or, they use it as an opportunity to try out a new subject, which could turn into an additional major or minor to round out their career skills.
For the latest summer class offerings, descriptions and schedules, visit the Summer Sessions web site, and flip through the online Summer Sessions course catalog for a quick scan of what’s available. Plus, students can find out if they’re eligible for a summer grant.
For more information, students can contact their academic advisors or the Summer Sessions office at email@example.com or 513-745-3601.
Given a record number of deposits, Xavier is proud to be a top college choice for new students entering the Fall 2009 semester. While the University welcomes and values students from around the country and abroad, Xavier is especially pleased to honor this tradition: educating two or more siblings from the same family.
As a Jesuit Catholic university, Xavier is dedicated to all faiths and cultures, and to providing students with a superior education, individual attention and personal care. Through the years, positive feedback from satisfied siblings has inspired many of their younger brothers and sisters to follow and share in the Xavier experience.
For parents, this family tradition makes good sense financially, which is especially important these days. Families who send two children to Xavier get a $1,000 discount on each student’s tuition. And families with three or more siblings receive a 25-percent discount off each student’s tuition.
To learn more about keeping Xavier in your family, contact the Office of Undergraduate Admission at 513-745-3301 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whether it’s this summer or the summer of 2010, Xavier can give your teen a first taste of college life and academics.
The Jump Start College Experience Program, July 5-18, enables students who complete their sophomore or junior year in high school to enroll in one of these special two-week, on-campus programs:
- Pre-Medicine: Study the nervous system through an interdisciplinary exploration in biology, chemistry and physics.
- Criminalistics/Forensic Science: Learn the latest technology for gathering physical evidence and conducting crime scene investigations.
College readiness activities help students prepare for campus visits and writing college essays. After successfully completing the Jump Start program, students earn three undergraduate college credits that can be applied to Xavier or to other colleges.
Students live in a Xavier residence hall, eat in campus dining facilities, and have access to all the amenities and resources available to Xavier students. Jump Start students also go on off-campus trips to Cincinnati attractions like the Cincinnati Museum and Kings Island amusement park.
The all-inclusive cost of $2,350 covers tuition, on-campus housing, meals, activities, books and supplies. Scholarships are available. To learn more about attending this summer or next, visit the Jump Start web site. Limited spots are available.
