Students going home (or elsewhere) for the summer may be particularly interested in the numerous 100% online summer offerings that can be taken from anywhere.
Of course, many students also enjoy the benefits of residing on campus during the summer, taking advantage of Winthrop's many campus amenities minus the full academic year student crowd.
Completing courses during the summer - in addition to fall/spring studies - can help students to graduate on time or to graduate early! For example, completing a pre-requisite in the summer for a fall course or making progress on a change in major can speed up a student's path to completion.
Doing well in a summer course - or a few summer courses - can help students retain or regain their LIFE Scholarship.
Taking fewer courses during the summer than is typical in fall/spring enables students to put more time and focus into the work of each course. Some students use this opportunity to replace a grade by retaking a course. In either case, good summer grades positively improve a student's cumulative GPA.
Summer tuition for in-state students, per credit hour/per course, is reduced 25% from fall/spring tuition rates.
