RIT announces summer session course offerings in online format
More than 350 courses in over 90 disciplines offered
Rochester Institute of Technology has announced that registration is open for its summer sessions that will be offered in an online format.
Undergraduate and graduate students can take advantage of a 10-week session (May 26-Aug. 10) and two five-week sessions (May 26-June 30 and July 1-Aug. 10). Graduate students can also enroll in a targeted seven-week session (May 26-July 14).
The goals are for students to continue making progress toward their degrees, earn additional credit hours to catch up or get ahead, dedicate themselves to immersive undergraduate research, and explore interests outside of their majors, all while taking advantage of flexible schedules.
In addition, matriculated undergraduate students will receive grants when they register for six or more undergraduate credits this summer. Students registering for six to eight undergraduate credits will receive a grant of up to $2,000 for the summer semester; students registering for nine to 11 undergraduate credits will receive a grant of up to $3,500 for the summer semester; and students registering for 12 or more undergraduate credits will receive a grant of up to $5,000 for the summer semester. Students are eligible for only one financial award.
RIT’s Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships will apply the grants, which are in addition to any other need-based eligibility the students may have, as a credit toward summer semester bills.
“RIT is giving our students, no matter where they are, opportunities to remain connected to the university, their professors, and their classmates through summer online offerings,” said Joe Loffredo, RIT associate vice president and registrar. “Students can enroll in rigorous courses and are able to focus solely on those courses, earn extra credits toward their degrees, and continue to exercise their minds this summer.”
Popular courses available this summer in the online format include Linear Algebra, General and Analytical Chemistry, Introduction to Creative Writing, Mass Communications, Positive Psychology, and Calculus, among others. Course offerings are still being added. A survey will also be distributed to students to help university administrators understand what additional courses should be offered this summer to meet student’s needs.
