MISSOULA – The University of Montana is enhancing its summer semester options this year.
UM is offering more classes, free math tutoring and discounted on-campus housing for students.
UM will offer more than 1,000 classes this summer, and more than 200 of those will be online, allowing students to attend from anywhere with internet access.
This year summer courses will be offered in three-week, six-week and 12-week sessions.
This is more sessions than previous years, a move made possible by shortening the break between fall and spring semesters earlier this year.
For the first time ever, UM Housing is providing a special on-campus housing offer for students taking at least six credits this summer.
The new initiative offers an affordable option for students who want to stay in Missoula and take summer courses.
Students can live in Jesse Hall for a flat rate of $300 for a shared room or $450 for a single room for the entire summer term.
In addition to providing an on-campus housing option, UM will offer free summer math tutoring at both UM’s Mountain campus and Missoula College.
This year UM has also extended the summer payment deadline to Sunday, July 14.
Registration for summer session is open now.
