Summer Sessions offers students the opportunity to get ahead, focus on a challenging course, catch up, or in some cases lighten their load in future terms, all on track to graduation. In an effort to provide students access to the benefits of summer classes, the University has approved a significant reduction for summer session tuition compared to last year. To help students plan for summer, the University’s Summer Sessions 2013 schedule is available online. Summer registration opens to Montclair State students beginning on March 4. Students can view the course schedule and learn more about Summer Sessions at Montclair State by visiting montclair.edu/summer.
“With the economic realities facing our students and their families, the tuition reduction for summer classes makes it more affordable to take courses during the summer while continuing to provide students the opportunity to stay on track toward their degree,” explains Associate Dean for Extended Learning Jamieson Bilella. Tuition for a three credit undergraduate course is reduced to $935. This is a 12.5% reduction over last year’s summer tuition rates. The tuition for six credits has been reduced to $1790, or a 13.5% reduction. In addition, the more courses/credits students enroll, the greater the savings. This summer, undergraduate students may earn up to 15 credits and save up to 17% on tuition. Tuition payment plans are also available.
Parking fees and housing have also been reduced for the summer. Current Montclair State University students who register for summer courses will need to register for a permit but will not have to pay a parking fee. Also, any student desiring housing for the summer will be able to take advantage of a 10% reduction in housing costs compared to last year. Student summer housing does not have any credit requirement and flexible arrangements are available.
Summer Sessions registration opens March 4, providing students the ability to register for classes 11 weeks prior to the start of the University’s first session on May 20. Registration will continue throughout the summer for the University’s nine summer sessions, with sessions beginning in May, June, July, and August. Sessions range in duration from three weeks to twelve weeks, but include four week, five week, six week, and eight week options.
