Students may be eligible for lower fees for summer session

Students who wish to take classes during the summer at Augusta University may benefit from a new summer fee structure.

With the success of 4 Years 4 U and enhanced academic support, more students are taking a full load during the school year, which means fewer students are enrolling in summer session. That’s a great result, but there are many reasons to take a course during the summer.

Historically, all fees were charged no matter how many or how few courses a student took.  According to Provost Gretchen Caughman, “This practice was deterring some students from taking a couple of courses during the summer. So we’ve prorated fees based on the number of credit hours a student takes.”

Registration will continue through May 24 to allow students to take advantage of this opportunity. If you have already enrolled and paid and are eligible for a refund for some of these fees, it will be processed automatically after summer term starts.

The new summer fee structure is available on our website. If you have questions, please see your advisor.
