5-Week Summer Sessions

Summer I: June 5-July 6
Summer II: July 10-Aug. 10

These traditional summer sessions are a great way to pack a lot of college credits into a short period of time. They’re also a great format for tackling a tough subject (you’ll be immersed in it) or retaking a class.

10-Week Summer Session

June 5-Aug. 10

Because some subjects are tough to pack into a 5-week session—and some students simply prefer taking a summer class that’s structured more like a traditional fall/spring semester. Either way, 10-week classes are just another flexible option to help you keep your head in the game all summer.

Summer Workforce & LVN Session

Workforce: May 22-Aug. 10, 2017

Speaking of options, TC offers several course formats to fit your lifestyle.

Face-to-Face Courses

This traditional course format means you’ll spend plenty of time in the classroom with your instructor—which, for some students, is the key to tackling a tough subject. During the summer, expect longer classes that occur more frequently than traditional fall/spring semesters.

Online Courses

You’re busy—we know. That’s the beauty of online classes. Yes, you’re doing as much work as you would in a face-to-face class, but you can do the work after hours, on your own time, around your busy schedule, and (if you want) in your pajamas. TC offers a wide variety of online classes year-round.

Hybrid Courses

Hybrid is just a fancy way of saying you’ll spend some time in a classroom and some time online. Hybrid classes are a blend of the traditional and online course formats—you’ll meet face-to-face some, but you’ll also complete some of your coursework in an online classroom. This is great for subjects that can mostly be taught online but still need a little hands-on instruction.
