If you’re facing some extra time at home and you want to do something more productive than binge-watching Netflix and #QuarantineCooking, consider taking an online class this summer. You’ll add some structure to your days and feel a sense of accomplishment.
Be smart about your summer. Invest in yourself and your skills. Credits you earn at Immaculata can help you finish your degree faster.
Study now, take the pressure off later
Taking a summer class could lighten your course load during the school year. If you need to fulfill some general education requirements in biology, chemistry, English composition, Spanish, social sciences or music, take advantage of your time now.
If you’re enrolled at another institution, check with your advisor there to confirm that courses you take at IU will transfer. IU is an accredited university, so in many cases, your credits will transfer easily.
Flexible online learning
All-online courses give you the flexibility you need, with plenty of support. Immaculata offers a free online success seminar that will help you navigate the online learning environment. So if your August vacation plans are looking a little more probable, you can still complete your assignments from anywhere.
You can choose from three summer sessions that run for seven weeks or 15 weeks, with flexible times that work for your schedule.
More time to focus
The relaxed pace of summer will help you focus on a challenging course. If you’re nervous about notoriously tough courses such as Anatomy and Physiology or Statistics, why not try taking them this summer when you’ll be free to give them more attention? Or if you just want some extra time to hone your guitar chops or brush up on your business skills, now is the time.
