UVI Business Professor and Summer Sessions Coordinator Dr. Tonjia
Coverdale encouraged everyone to see what UVI Summer Sessions have
to offer. Dr. Coverdale said courses may be beneficial for people
who want to enhance their education, re-tool their skills for a
career change, or start a degree program.
"You don't have to be enrolled or matriculated at UVI to take
courses," Dr. Coverdale said.
UVI Vice Provost for Access and Enrollment Management Dr. Judith
Edwin said that Summer Sessions also provide a good opportunity for
matriculated students to stay in sequence with courses for their
respective degree programs.
In addition to traditional classes, Summer Session II offers 10
on-line classes. The on-line offerings range from courses in
history, business, English, criminal justice and political science.
UVI offers two summer sessions. Summer Session I ends on June
