The perks of attending summer semester at UVU

Summertime and the living is easy — the sun is out, the temperatures are up, and classes are in session. Taking classes during summer semester is one of the smartest choices UVU students can make. Why? Because you’ll be able to knock out classes quickly, stay on track to graduate on time, and ultimately save money. 

 

Classes during the summer are on an eight-week block structure instead of the common 12-week block during fall and spring. This accelerated block means you’ll learn not only quickly, but efficiently. With the quick block you’ll be able to take those troublesome classes, retake a few classes to boost your GPA, or take a class that you’ve always wanted but for which you didn’t have the time. Talk to your academic counselor today to see how summer semester can benefit you.

Tuition of summer semester

Summer tuition rates change for everyone — no matter where you’re from — to in-state tuition rates. Yes, that’s right, everyone will pay the same. A 9-credit course load translates to $1,936 in tuition, compared to the out-of-state tuition cost of $5,991 during fall and spring semesters. Make your dollars stretch this summer!

Parking during summer semester

Parking on campus can be a headache sometimes, but not at all during the summer. You’ll still need to register your car, but you won’t have to pay for a parking permit, and you won’t have to endlessly circle the parking lots looking for a spot.
