Hannibal-LaGrange University is pleased to announce reduced tuition for its summer online undergraduate courses. "All 2014 summer online courses will be just $199 per credit hour. This is almost half of our normal online rate," stated Dr. Jill Arnold, Director of HLGU Online Learning. Additional charges include lab and technology fees. Other fees may apply dependent on type of class being taken.
This year's summer courses include New Testament survey, intro to speech communication, English composition II, US history I, English life & Literature I, advanced topic: Allegorical Literature, Principles of Marketing, Music Appreciation, Bioethics, special topic: Bioethics, and General Psychology. Online summer classes begin June 2 and run thru July 25, 2014. Registration is now open for these classes.
One of the biggest advantages to taking online courses is the convenience. The classroom and instructor (theoretically) are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Everything the student needs is available to him/her online thus making missing a class basically impossible. Online learning allows the student to review assignments, chat with fellow students, read announcements, access notes, and discuss questions as he/she needs or wants.
"Having the option to take a few classes online over the summer is definitely something more and more undergrads are taking advantage of. Being able to get a few of their core classes completed over the summer break gives the students an advantage and may even help them to graduate a semester early," stated Arnold.
