Workload and expectations
Most summer courses have an intensive teaching format, completing a summer course successfully requires your full committment. For this reason, we reccommend that you take no more than two courses during the summer.
For a manageable workload, we reccommend that you spread your courses across November and January sessions rather than enrolling in two courses in one session. Due to the timeframe for summer courses, it is often not possible to be as generous with assignment extensions as it is for semester courses.
