Anyone who is interested in earning college credits in condensed sessions has the opportunity to take classes at the University of the Virgin Islands during UVI’s Summer Sessions 2012. Summer Session II will be held from June 21 to July 27. On-line registration for Summer Session II is on-going until June 18. On-site registration will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 19-20 on each campus.
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 18.
