LOCK HAVEN, Pa. - Lock Haven University has announced that registration is now open for LHU summer courses. LHU is offering undergraduate courses on both the main and Clearfield campuses and online, with offerings suitable for new college students, continuing students matriculated at LHU and other institutions, returning adults and graduate students. Lock Haven University is a member of the Pennsylvania State
System of Higher Education (PASSHE), the largest provider of higher education in
the commonwealth. Its 14 universities offer more than 250 degree and certificate
programs in more than 120 areas of study. Nearly 405,000 system alumni live and
work in Pennsylvania.
LHU is providing three summer sessions. Summer Session 1 will run from May 18 to June 19, 2009 and Summer Session 2 will run from June 22 to July 24, 2009. In addition, the university will offer a 10-week session from May 18 to July 24, 2009.
Interim Associate Dean Cathi Gatewood pointed out that many of the courses are suitable for teachers seeking continuing education credit. She noted other benefits of summer study, including “an opportunity for students to focus intensely on a particularly difficult subject or subject of interest they may otherwise not have a chance to take.” She added, “Some students may want to take general education courses to raise their grade-point averages.”
Gatewood emphasized that earning credits during the summer may also help students to graduate on time. Registrar Jill Mitchley added, “Online courses enable students to study from home, and they can organize their studies around their summer jobs.” Both Gatewood and Mitchley urged interested students to visit the registrar’s website and to register online as soon as possible, as classes often fill up quickly.
