Registration for Alfred University’s Summer School programs to begin

Registration for Summer School classes at Alfred University begins Monday, March 15.

This year’s summer schedule includes a variety of popular undergraduate and graduate courses. Areas of concentration include the arts, foreign languages, natural and social sciences, history, engineering, mathematics, business and education.

Undergraduate courses including Glass Blowing and Hot Glass Casting, Mass Media and American Life, Software Engineering, Neuropsychology, and Introduction to Theater are offered. Graduate course selections include Ceramics, Contemporary Art, Finance, School Psychology, and Counseling.

New this year, several summer courses are being offered in an online, “hybrid” format. These are online courses with some required on-campus meeting dates. The first class meeting day, time, and location will be indicated in the course description. Subsequent required class meeting days and times will be included in the course syllabus. Courses offered in this format are identified with an asterisk in the list on the Summer school courses Web page, which is accessible through

Printed copies of the Summer School Schedule Booklet are available at the Student Service Center (Registrar’s Office), Seidlin Hall; the campus mail room, Powell Campus Center; and in the Office of Summer Programs, Carnegie Hall (Administration Building).

Summer Session I will run from Monday, May 17-Friday, June 25. Summer Session II will run from Monday, June 28-Friday, Aug. 6.

Studying at AU over the summer allows student to complete a full semester course within a few weeks, concentrate on one course without the burden of a heavy course load, and can lighten students’ course loads in the fall and spring. Students can also make up a failed course, get more individualized attention, advance academic standing, and take graduate courses to prepare for graduate study.

Classes are open to current Alfred University students, incoming freshmen, transfer students, and undergraduate and graduate students from other colleges and universities.
