A Few Reasons to Explore Summer Classes at Keene State

  • Get Ahead or Catch Up: If you’re looking to graduate early or catch up on credits, summer courses are a great way to do so. You can use this time to fulfill requirements, allowing for a more relaxed schedule during the regular academic year.
  • Improve GPA: If you had a challenging semester or want to improve your GPA, a summer course can help. With fewer distractions and a focused environment, you might find it easier to excel academically.
  • Flexibility: Our online summer courses often have more flexible schedules. Whether you’re working, traveling, or pursuing other activities, summer courses can be a good fit with your summer plans.
  • Accelerated Learning: Summer courses are often condensed, allowing you to cover a semester’s worth of material in a shorter time. This can be an excellent way to immerse yourself in a subject and gain a deep understanding quickly.
  • Explore Interests: Summer courses often offer unique subjects or electives that aren’t available during the regular academic year. It’s an opportunity to explore a passion or interest that might not fit into your usual schedule.
