5 Reasons to Take a Summer Class

Summer. Well. Spent


Whether you're already an NCC student, or just home from another college for break, taking a class or two at Northampton Community College this summer makes a lot of sense. Here's why:

1. Easy Breezy

If you get a classes out of the way over the summer, you may be able to take a lighter course load in the fall. For guest students, it's easy to transfer credits to your current college or university. 

2. So Much Time For Activities

Summer classes are more time-compacted than those during the regular semester. Who doesn't want more time to enjoy themselves in the warm summer sun!

3. Do Over  

Did you fail or have to withdraw from a difficult class? Summer is the perfect time to retake it and boost your GPA! You can devote your time to that one class, and increase your chances of passing it!

4. That's A Tough One

It's easier to succeed in a difficult course if it's the only one you're taking. Plus, fewer students in the summer means your instructor will be even more accessible! 

5. Reaching The Finish Line

Every class you take puts you that much closer to graduation!
