Q
Asked by: Kamilah
Question: thinking of doing some summer courses. Do they have finals like in the winter and fall semesters or do they end when the summer term ends?

Answered by: Lawson
Answer: Great question! Summer classes are a good idea as they help students make up credits, increase a grade, or even get ahead of the pack. They work similar to classes which you would take in first or second semesters but the main difference is that the course curriculum is accelerated. Since the Spring and Summer semesters are only 2 months long, you will be required to learn the same amount of material in half the time. Classes are 3 hours as opposed to 1.5 hours and have midterms/exams the same as any other class. Don't let the deter you from taking them, however. Less time means less time to forget things!! Good luck and Happy Holidays from all of us here at Ask A SMUdent!
