Think Ahead. Think Summer @ Purdue!


Sunscreen, Barbecues, and Classes? Okay, so
some students wouldn’t place summer and classes in the same sentence but Shen and Kylie do.
They Think Summer at Purdue. Great weather, smaller classes, flexible schedules, and enjoying
the fast track to graduation. They’re all in! But where do they go from here? Well,
its simple. They choose their own adventure. Whether they want to stay in West Lafayette,
nibble a baguette in Paris, complete an internship, or chill in their PJ’s working on homework
– Purdue features customized paths for all their educational goals. At Purdue, we understand
that summer is unique so we break classes into modules to accommodate the variety of
the season’s activities. Shen and Kylie can select courses in four-week (“Maymester”),
six-week, eight-week, or class specific modules – leaving plenty of time to gain valuable
educational experiences before being subjected to Aunt Julie’s unsolicited praise about her
kids at the annual family reunion. From a list of more than 400 courses, Shen and Kylie
easily find classes that fulfill requirements for their majors; but deciding how many credits
to take in the summer is a little trickier. Fortunately, it’s not rocket science (even
though Purdue students can actually handle that), summer tuition is a flat rate for anything
between 6 to 9 credit hours. If you stay below 6 or go above 9 you get charged a per credit
rate. So keeping their course load in the sweet spot guarantees more education for their
money! However, one or two classes still makes sense if they decide to do an internship or
study abroad. Shen and Kylie’s summer adventures are ready for them! What are you waiting for?
