Summer is literally around the corner. Three and a half weeks from now, you'll be on a beach somewhere with your besties, Corona in hand, and the last thing on your mind will be school, studying, classes, homework... aahhh.
While you certainly deserve a vacation after making it through the year, it might be wise to delay gratification a little while longer. Even if you have a busy summer work or travel schedule, and whether you're trying to get ahead in your major or explore your extracurricular interests, Summer School is an option worth looking into. Here's why.
1. Save money.
Summer classes are paid for on a per-credit-hour-basis which actually figures to LESS than the amount for the same course during the fall or spring semester. You know what that means: you can save money to put towards a well-earned summer vacation by completing a Summer School session. Undergraduate fees are $252 per credit.

2. Take classes that you wouldn't otherwise have time for.
Did you know that there are over 600 courses offered during the summer? Take advantage of this opportunity to take classes outside of your degree when you have more time on your hands and don't have to deal with the stress of the busy academic year.
3. Or, advance towards your degree.
Get the same credits in less time with either a 3, 5, 8, or 10-week program. Summer School schedules are intensive, but also extremely flexible-- there is definitely an option out there for you, no matter how much you're working or traveling in the upcoming summer months.
5. Adapt your class schedule to fit into your summer plans.
There is literally a summer class option for everyone and every schedule. Boise State offers over 50 classes in the evening (after 5 pm), weekend classes, and many online class options as well through Boise State's eCAMPUS.
6. Explore your extracurricular interests.
Think that summer class just means a longer school year? Think again! Boise State offers dozens of fascinating intensive workshops that you can take just for fun, such as Introduction to Basque Culture, Food, Film and Culture, and Listening and Spirituality, to name just a few.
