Open Enrollment to Begin Feb. 22
for UW-Eau Claire Summer Classes

RELEASED: Feb. 11, 2008

Summer Session logoEAU CLAIRE — Community members can enroll in Summer Session classes at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire beginning Feb. 22. Summer enrollment began Feb. 7 for current students.

The three-week 2008 Summer Session will run May 19-June 6. The eight-week session will run from June 8-Aug. 1.

Summer Session will offer nearly 200 undergraduate and graduate courses, including 70 online classes. Classes will be offered through the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Business, the College of Nursing and Health Sciences and the College of Education and Human Sciences.

"Summer Session is a good way for students to keep their momentum during the long summer break," said Provost and Vice Chancellor Steven Tallant. "Taking prerequisite courses during the summer allows students to progress through their program quickly and can lighten course loads during the fall and spring semesters. The summer classes also give community members an opportunity to enroll in an array of interesting courses."

Online classes — offered in everything from accounting to women's studies — are convenient for working adults and students who live away from Eau Claire in the summer. On-campus classes will range from "The American Indian in Literature and Film" to "Intermediate Algebra" to "Introduction to Environmental Health."

Area educators can choose from the nearly 50 courses designed to meet their needs. And students from other UW System schools who will live in the Chippewa Valley in the summer also can register for courses.

Students who enroll in some courses will meet in unconventional places. For example, students will study animals and terrain in the Galapagos Islands; examine the geological features and processes in the Rocky Mountains; and analyze marine biology and geology at the Gulf Coast Research Lab in Ocean Springs, Miss.

Summer Session students can participate in summer recreation and fitness activities, and rent outdoor equipment.
