Summer school available at half price — again

By Secilie Villarreal


For the second year in a row, summer school classes at the University of the Incarnate Word will be half the usual price, making it more affordable, officials said.

“The rate is $395 per credit hour,” said Sandy McMakin, dean of student success. “Students may utilize student loans and/or federal Pell (grant) for the summer.”

When the summer rate was slashed last year, UIW had 100 more students seek summer classes from the summer of 2012, McMakin said.

McMakin said UIW is hoping more students will discuss with their advisers during the April 9-24 advising period the possibility of taking summer classes. For those interested in 2014’s summer classes, there will be three summer terms: Summer I is May 19-June 26, Summer II is June 30-Aug. 7, and Summer Extended is May 19-July 24.

“There will be a one-page Summer Application available online in April for students to download, which must be submitted to the Office of Financial Assistance along with the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) in order for a student to receive summer aid,” McMakin said.
