For summer school 2014, UNC Charlotte’s academic departments will offer more than 1,100 graduate and undergraduate courses and sections. With options for on-campus, online or hybrid delivery, there is likely something offered this summer that will meet even the most demanding schedules.
Attending summer school at UNC Charlotte can help shorten students’ time until graduation. Other reasons include the ability to focus on just one or two subjects instead of a full 12- or 15-hour course load; an opportunity to get a seat in the ever-popular LBST courses; and the option to take an elective on a topic that is of personal interest.
Registration opens Monday, March 24, and classes fill quickly. Students are encouraged to meet with their academic advisor soon to plan out their summer schedule. Click here to see the list of available courses.
The Graduate School is accepting applications for the 2014-15 Graduate Life Fellows program. Each GLF receives a $5,000 award for his or her contributions to the UNC Charlotte graduate student community during his or her entire year of service.
According to Graduate School officials, the mission of the Graduate Life Fellows (GLFs) is to help build a sense of community within the graduate student population. Coordinating activities and events on or near campus that foster diverse social and academic engagement is one of the most effective strategies used by the GLFs. They also work with incoming graduate students as mentors, offering guidance and first-hand experience with the UNC Charlotte academic system. The GLF program continues to provide engaging opportunities for graduate students to give back to the local Charlotte community via philanthropic efforts.
Applications for the 2014-15 cohort of fellows will be accepted until March 10. Both master’s and doctoral full-time students are encouraged to apply.
