|Summer Session 2019 Registration Now Open at Queens College; Earliest Availability of Any College in the Tri-State Area|
-- Opportunity for Simultaneous Spring and Summer 2019 Registration for Queens College Undergraduate and Graduate Students; Visiting Students Welcome --
Queens, N.Y., November 16 2018—With a November 5 start date, Queens College became the first college in the tristate area to make summer session registration available to its over 20,000 students, as well as students from other institutions. Anyone—from Queens College and CUNY students to the general public—can currently choose from over 700 undergraduate and graduate courses, some conducted online.
Classes are offered in popular majors such as accounting and psychology, and run the gamut from ancient civilizations to urban studies. Also available are biology, chemistry and mathematics courses ranging from introductory to advanced, allowing students to master a challenging science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) course at their own pace—without the pressure of taking it as part of a semester’s full course load.
Students can earn a total of 15 credits over four convenient sessions from June through August. They can take advantage of a 20% discount on the cost of enrolling their children in the college’s
summer camp, and free on-campus parking. The extraordinarily diverse student body, with over 150 nations represented, provides a culturally enriching experience at an affordable price on the 80-acre campus, with its traditional college quad.
“This is a valuable opportunity for Queens College undergraduate and graduate students to begin long-term academic planning since they can register simultaneously for spring and summer classes. It also provides students at other institutions with time to explore the possibility of earning credits here. Among the many benefits of enrolling in one or more of the four available summer sessions are free on-campus parking; discounted enrollment in our well-regarded summer camp for the children of summer session students; shuttle bus service to and from major transportation hubs; and use of the college’s newly renovated athletics facilities,” says Queens College President Félix V. Matos Rodríguez.
