Why Enroll in Summer School at North Central?

The summer term gives you an extra chance to stay on track or get ahead in your degree program. For those wishing to graduate early, summer courses let you cross off required classes so you can focus on other course work during your academic year.

  • Smaller Classes, Quieter CampusSince fewer students attend summer classes on campus, you can benefit from smaller class sizes, more attention from faculty, and a less busy campus. You'll enjoy easier access to parking spots, dining, the library, and other services on campus while experiencing a more intimate classroom environment.
  • Continued and Concentrated Learning Your good study habits shouldn't stop just because spring classes have ended! Stay in the groove of studying and attending class with summer course work. Complete prerequisite classes during the summer so that you can register for more advanced classes later in the academic year. Do you struggle with a certain course topic? Then you can focus your undivided attention on that particular subject instead of balancing other courses at the same time.
