We promise, summer will be here soon
It may feel like winter, (let’s face it – it still IS winter!) but summer registration
is almost underway. Summer Semester registration opens Monday, February 17, and classes will begin on May 27.
Summer term is an excellent time to catch up on your Plan of Study, or get a little
jump ahead on a few classes, to lighten your load in the fall. The Summer Semester
is a little bit shorter than the other terms, too—only 11 weeks—so you’ll have plenty
of time to take a summer vacation before or after the term.
There’s a whole lot less traffic on campus during the summer and we guarantee you will not have any snow emergencies, Polar Vortexes, or wind chill advisories
to slow you down during the summer! So make plans to register for summer classes early,
so you can get the sections and times that you want, and we’ll see you after Memorial Day!
Need help with your taxes?
You can get help with filing your taxes at the Ohio Benefit Bank, which has an office
here on campus to help you! File income tax returns and complete the Free Application
for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) all in one place. The Benefit Bank ® (TBB ™) Self-Serve
is an easy way to get the help you need right now, using just your computer and a
connection to the internet. Free. No Waiting. No Lines. Safe. Confidential. Secure.
