UC maintains computer labs for part-time student use and a comfortable

In the summer, SU students and students from other colleges (visiting
students) enroll through UC. One aspect of the summer semester is a
variety of courses for these SU full-time and visiting students,
enabling them to catch up, make up or get ahead. Because summer is an
ideal time for faculty to experiment with new courses and programs,
students can take classes that are not offered during the academic
MAYmester, an intensive two-week session that begins immediately after
SU’s commencement, and online courses that last throughout the summer,
provide options that many students appreciate. Evening courses for
part-time students are open to all students during the summer.
Another aspect of summer at SU is the availability of continuing
education courses to meet the needs of working people, from teachers to
managers to counselors, who are required to keep on top of their
fields. To that end, SU offers a variety of one- and two-week courses
and workshops throughout the summer. By using only one week of their
vacation, busy professionals can complete the class time required for
an entire three-credit course.
In 2008, UC took over three important programs from SU’s division of
Student Support and Retention: Summer College for High School Students,
Summer Start for First Year Students, and Student SUccess Initiative.
