  • Enjoy a smaller class size and concentrate on one course
  • Accelerate degree completion or stay on track for graduation
  • Fulfill university curriculum (UC) or general education (GEC) requirements
  • Work towards a second major or minor, or take an elective
  • Pay a reduced tuition rate per credit hour (same as summer)
  • Do something productive between the fall and spring semesters
