Get ahead, save money this summer at M State

May 18, 2020

Dozens of online courses give students a chance to get ahead and save money this summer at M State – and students attending other colleges are welcome to take advantage of the opportunity.

M State’s extensive online summer course offerings begin Monday, June 1, with options that include general education courses, pre-professional health courses, business classes, nursing prerequisites and engineering courses. June 3 is the last day to add classes for summer session.

By taking online summer courses, M State students can stay on track to graduate, lighten their load during the coming academic year or complete a degree faster.

“Current students are encouraged to take summer courses to get ahead in their studies. Taking coursework this summer only gets you closer to graduation and employment,” said Dr. Matthew Borcherding, M State’s dean of sciences and mathematics.

Students headed to or already enrolled at a four-year college can complete general education transfer courses at a substantial savings: M State’s low tuition means college-bound students can take a three-credit general education course for $637 (plus books), compared to $1,537 (plus books) at a four-year university.

“M State offers many general education courses that students will take at practically any university during their first two years – and some that might not be offered at their own university,” Borcherding said. “Given these uncertain times, M State is financially your best choice. Come try us out over the summer.”

Visiting students – those attending other colleges or universities – can register for summer classes through May 29 within E-Services or by using the Visiting Student Application.


For new M State incoming and transfer students, new student applications for summer semester are accepted until May 25, and M State’s Enrollment Team is available to assist with completing the application and getting enrolled.
