Save 25 Percent on Summer Classes at McKendree University

(Lebanon, Ill., March 5, 2012) — McKendree University is offering a 25 percent discount on summer class tuition not only to its undergraduates but also to students from other schools. Undergraduates at the Lebanon campus can take summer courses for $585 per credit hour. Classes start on June 4.

The discount is available not only to current McKendree undergraduates at the Lebanon campus and new students who will start next fall. It is also offered to undergraduates enrolled at other institutions who want to take a summer class or two as non-degree-seeking students. The reduced tuition rate does not apply to graduate students or those enrolled at the university’s off-site locations.

Students can take advantage of the lower summer rate to jump start or accelerate their academic program at a significant savings. A lighter course load during the regular semester can make it easier to participate in campus activities. McKendree students can eliminate the paperwork required to register at another school and transfer their credits. They can also boost their grade point average if they do well.

A variety of four, six or eight-week courses is offered in one of three formats: face-to-face at the Lebanon campus, online and at the Center at Scott Air Force Base.

There is no limit to the number of courses or credit hours that students may take at the reduced summer tuition rate. Online courses carry an additional $50 per credit hour technology fee. Lab or other course-specific fees will also apply, however student activity and health services fees will not be charged. The Office of Financial Aid will review all students who have financial aid eligibility.

Interested current undergraduates may contact their academic advisors and new students should contact their McKendree admissions counselor for more information. Non-McKendree students may contact the admission office at (800) BEARCAT or (618) 537-6831 for more details.
