PULLMAN, Wash. — Summer Session classes began Monday (May 12) at Washington State University, and officials there are expecting about 4,500 students to enroll over the course of the summer.
A variety of courses are offered through the summer. Most students take general education and business courses, but everything from “Terrorism and the Mass Media” to “Topics in History: Jazz” is offered.
The three blocks of summer session courses are: Block A, which began May 12, the early six-week session; Block B, beginning June 9, eight weeks; and Block C, beginning June 23, the late six-week session. Because classes begin and end on various dates, registration is based on rolling deadlines. Students are encouraged to register by the first day of class.
“Most students sign up for courses in the early six-week session,” said Linda Schoepflin, director of Summer Session, “giving students the opportunity to work or enjoy the rest of the summer.”
Tuition for summer courses is based on credit hours. Undergraduate fees per credit are $226 for residents and $265 for nonresidents, not including special course fees. Students are charged per credit because summer session is a self-sustained program that does not receive state funds.
