Why You Should Consider Taking Summer Classes
Summer Session classes are very popular with MSUM students, due to the fact that they help students catch up if they are behind on credits; get ahead to possibly graduate sooner; take classes they can’t fit in during the academic year; help to lighten the load for more difficult classes that may have to be taken during the regular school year; or explore offerings that are purely based on interest. MSUM Summer Session 2014 offers a wide variety of courses online and in the classroom for students who want to earn credits toward Liberal Arts and Sciences Curriculum (LASC) requirements or degree requirements. The Nursing Summer Session, however, presents to students the opportunity of taking classes completely online, therefore providing the ease of receiving quality education from the comfort of your own home.
What Nursing Has To Offer This Summer
Courses are offered in flexible three-, four-, five-, six- and eight-week sessions from May 20th–August 6th and credits vary depending on each course. Follow the links below to explore Summer options for Nursing, as well as other courses available.

Spring Semester 2015 is coming to a close, but before summer begins there are a few important dates to keep in mind:
• Study Day—Study day is on Wednesday, May 6th. No classes are held on study day except for classes meeting 4:30 pm or later.
• Finals—Finals are being held on May 7th-13th. Please check the final exams schedule to verify the correct date and time of your final(s). You can see the final exams schedule at this link: http://www.mnstate.edu/academics/finalexamschedules.aspx
• Graduation—Commencement will take place on Friday, May 15th at the Nemzek Fieldhouse. There are two ceremonies – one at 10:00 AM and one at 2:00 PM
The Spring 2015 semester here at MSUM is almost over, and the Summer 2015 and Fall 2015 sessions are just around the corner. The general plan for many during this period is to get some well-earned relaxation time, while others will use this opportunity to make extra progress toward the graduation journey, by taking a few summer classes here and there.
Regardless of what your plans are, it is important to register for Fall 2015 classes as soon as possible, because they fill up very quickly. Take the time to sit down and map out a solid plan that involves taking all the right classes this Fall. Discuss your options with your advisor and receive your access code in order to be able to register.
Also, if you want to take summer classes, speak with your advisor and register as soon as possible, as many low enrolled summer courses may already be cancelled.
This is a time within which certain Nursing classes can be taken, and LASC goals can be completed.
Check out eServices today to be able to register for your courses.
