Enrollment for summer classes down

Fewer students will take summer classes this year, marking a two-year dip in summer enrollment.

More than 10,300 students have enrolled in classes for at least one of the summer sessions, about 1,300 fewer students than last year. In 2009, 11,843 students took summer classes.

Students are able to enroll in a full-time course load or study part-time during both summer sessions, Elizabeth Amundson, the University’s registrar, said.

“In a typical fall semester there may be five large sections of ECON 1011 offered, while in each summer session, one section will be offered. Five sections of SPAN 1001 will be offered this coming fall, while two are offered this summer,” Amundson said, referring to introductory economics and Spanish classes.

She added there is a possibility that more students will enroll in classes this summer, as the registration period for the second session is still open for three more weeks.
