Reasons You Should Take a Summer Class

  • If you got behind on your degree path, taking summer classes can help you get back on track.
  • If you’re not behind on your degree, taking summer classes can help you get ahead and maybe even graduate early.
  • Summer classes can help lighten your workload for upcoming semesters.
  • Have a hard class coming up? Take it in the summer so you can focus on it without worrying about a full semester's load of other classes.
  • Every degree has pre-reqs. Taking them at SMC during the summer instead of at your university can help you save a ton of money.
  • If you need to retake a course, summer is the perfect time to get it out of the way.
  • Unsure about beginning college? A nine-week summer class is the perfect way to "get your feet wet" and test it out.
