offers undergraduate students the opportunity to:

  • Complete 3 credit hours in 8 class days
  • Choose from dozens of courses for your major, minor and the UC
  • Enjoy a smaller class size and concentrate on one course
  • Accelerate degree completion or stay on track for graduation
  • 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
