Southeastern Louisiana University revamps its offerings for the summer semester by lowering tuition cost and adding high demanded courses. Director of Marketing and Admissions Mike Rivault says they wanted to have a wider variety of classes available for current students and students home for the summer from other universities.
“Summer has always been a good time to play catch up a little bit or to get ahead. A lot of students have found it less accessible at their home institution or as tuition rates have risen.”
Rivault says the new course offerings include hybrid courses, which combine face-to-face and online instruction. He says the recommended course load for a student is 15 hours a semester and 30 hours a year but many students can’t.
“A lot of students aren’t doing that. A lot of students working during school and can’t take that many hours. Summer is a great time to catch up and we really wanted to make it as accessible as possible.”
Rivault says with an anticipated net cost of less than 900-dollars for three-credit hour course, Southeastern’s summer semester will provide the highest education value with the lowest cost of four-year colleges in south Louisiana…
“Lowered fee structure is not just for our current students but also for visiting students and it’s a very easy process and you basically just have to show us that you’re at another university.”
