|UTM offering ‘Maymester’ classes |
|Posted: Friday, April 1, 2011 12:03 pm |
|“Maymester,” a special three-week mini-term, will be offered in May at the University of Tennessee at Martin. The term will span May 16-June 3. |
“Maymester has proven to be a very popular addition to our academic calendar in its first two years, and we are looking forward to another successful term for 2011,” said Dr. Jerald Ogg, vice chancellor for academic affairs.
“The deans and chairs have been working with the faculty to fine tune the courses we will offer, and we hope the students will find it both practical and educationally rewarding.”
Each in-person class will meet daily (Monday through Friday). The four standard course time slots for three-hour courses will be as follows: 7:30-10:30 a.m., 10:45 a.m.-1:45 p.m., 2-5 p.m. and 6-9 p.m. The maximum load will be six semester hours.
Registration for the special term will begin April 4 and end at 5 p.m., April 12. Late registration will be available until 5 p.m., May 17, but a late registration fee of $50 will apply. For fee information, contact UTM.
Fee payments will be due by 5 p.m., May 17. Financial aid will be available to the same extent there is assistance available during the regular summer terms.
There will be several courses offered online or as in-person/online “hybrids.” The Parsons, Ripley and Selmer centers are planning to offer courses during the “Maymester” in addition to the summer terms.
Book loans for the mini-term courses will be available, as will housing.
The mini-term will be followed by two five-week summer terms, one beginning on June 6 and the second on July 12.
