The Delaware State University Board of Trustees recently approved a 35% reduction in the cost of 2013 undergraduate summer session courses.
The in-state rate this summer will drop from $273 down to $177 per credit hour. The out-of-state summer rate will decrease from $620 to $403.
The reduction – which only applies to undergraduate courses – will be for both Summer Session I (May 21 to June 27) and Summer Session II (July 1 to Aug. 8). There is no change in the current per credit hour rates for graduate or doctoral summer courses (in-state graduate – $417; out-of-state graduate – $920; in-state/out-of-state doctoral – $528)/
Dr. Eric A. Cheek, DSU director of Summer School and Summer Programs, said with this reduction, students can take three courses for less than the price of two during the regular term.
“Many of our students and families are struggling, and as a caring University we need to help them in any way we can,” Dr. Cheek said. “By reducing the undergraduate summer rates by 35%, we are giving students the opportunity to get ahead, catch up or just stay on track and save on their total cost.”
The DSU Board of Trustees approved the summer undergraduate course reduction during its March 18 regular quarterly meeting.
