Students can turn their summer endeavors into credit-bearing experiences. Research shows that experience PLUS mentored reflection yields high impact learning.
Note—many students who receive funding through the Common Grant are required to register their experience for credit through the Registrar’s Office in Pearsons Hall. Tuition is charged for all credit-bearing experiences. For current tuition rates, please review the Accounting office’s website .
