|UTM planning ‘Maymester’ |
|Posted: Friday, March 30, 2012 12:00 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 14-June 1. |
“Maymester has grown in each of its first three years, so I am expecting another action-packed three weeks for 2012,” said Dr. Jerald Ogg, vice chancellor for academic affairs. “The deans and I understand the accelerated format is not appropriate for every course, but it works very well for others. We’re excited to offer yet another tool to help our students stay on track to graduate.”
Each in-person class will meet daily (Monday through Friday) and the maximum load will be six semester hours.
Registration for the special term will begin Monday and end at 5 p.m. April 10. Late registration will be available until 5 p.m. May 15, and fee payments will be due by 5 p.m. May 15. Financial aid will be available to the same extent there is assistance available during the regular summer terms.
The mini-term will be followed by two five-week summer terms, one beginning June 4 and the second July 10. The Parsons, Ripley and Selmer centers are also planning to offer courses during the “Maymester” in addition to the summer terms.
Book loans and housing for the mini-term courses will also be available.
