Summer courses can speed up the successful completion of your degree program. If you're wondering whether you should sign up for a summer session this year, consider these factors in your decision.
Summer classes at the Tulane School of Professional Advancement are offered in six-week sessions and 12-week sessions, compared to about 16 weeks for the fall and spring semesters. Many students also only take one or two classes at a time, instead of adhering to a full schedule.
Taking the summer off can slow your progress if you're in a hurry to finish your degree. When you're already in school mode, it's easy to take advantage of that momentum to have a successful summer session. On the other hand, if you're prone to burnout and need a good break to function at your best, you may want to skip the summer session or only take one class per session.
