Summer classes open

by Daniel Martinez
Summer classes are officially open and available for Liberty students looking for a way to knock off a few credits in between the spring and fall 2008 semesters. “There are currently over 140 classes offered residentially between the multiple summer sessions for this coming summer,” according to Tom Butler of the Registrar’s Office.

The summer undergraduate tuition rate is $295 per credit hour, and an abundance of classes are available, with some classes being offered on campus and some through the Distance Learning Program (DLP). Graduate and DLP course rates remain the same.

Classes are offered in three summer sessions. The first session runs from May 12 to June 6, the second from June 9 to July 4 and the final sessions starts on July 7 and ends on July 25, just a few weeks before the beginning of the next academic school year. Registration for these classes opened on Jan. 2, and “current students may view course listings by logging onto ASIST and changing the term to Summer Session 2008,” according to the Course Offering/Dates Summer Session 2008 page on the Liberty University Web site.

According to the Web site, “your cost and availability of these courses will depend upon several factors, some which include the type of course you are taking.” With a wide variety of courses, many options are open to students, especially those planning to take multiple classes. “Summer classes cost right about $90 (per credit hour) less than a normal semester,” Butler said.

Undergraduate students who live on campus also have the benefit of a price cut if they are taking upwards of seven credit hours over the summer. According to the Web site, if they take more than seven hours, they only have to pay 100 percent of the tuition for the first six hours and half the usual amount for the remaining hours.

Also, students re-taking a course they failed during the school year only have to pay 50 percent of the tuition. According to the Payment Procedures page of the Web site, “Full payment must be made through Student Accounts prior to May 1, 2008, in order to reserve your class seat.”

Students with additional questions concerning payment procedures are invited to call the Student Service Center at (434) 592-5100. Contact Daniel Martinez at dpmartinez@liberty.edu.
