From longer days and shorter terms to Wayne State’s Spring/Summer Tuition Break, there are plenty of reasons to spend your summer learning. Registration for spring/summer classes is now open.
In keeping with the university's efforts to keep the campus community safe during the coronavirus pandemic, the upcoming spring semester courses (May 4-June 23) and spring/summer semester courses (May 4-July 30) will be offered via online or remote instruction only. Details for the summer semester courses (June 24-Aug. 14) have not yet been finalized. Students should note that not all courses currently reflect the change to online and remote instruction; the Registrar's Office is working to update class listings.
Online resources are available through the Learn Anywhere platform, as well as other programs and initiatives to support students’ success. Spring/summer courses fill quickly, so students are encouraged to meet with their advisor virtually to determine eligibility and plan their academic schedule.
Here are four great reasons to take a spring/summer class:
- Save time and money
Taking classes year-round is a great way to graduate sooner, make up a class and save money. Through WSU’s Spring/Summer Tuition Break, eligible students can receive a 30% tuition discount on spring/summer classes.
- Broaden your horizons
Spring/summer is the perfect time to focus on gaining experiences that will help you grow. Consider taking an elective outside your major. You never know what you might learn!
- Keep your brain active
Taking a class during spring/summer will help you stay sharp, ensuring there will be no need to dust off the cobwebs and get back into the routine of studying once the fall semester starts.
- Shorter, more flexible terms
Spring/summer classes range in duration from 7 to 12 weeks, rather than the traditional 16 weeklong terms offered in fall and winter. Shorter terms mean more flexibility for your schedule — you’ll still have plenty of time for other commitments.
