Get ahead with fall semester second session classes

It’s now a few weeks into fall semester and you may find yourself a bit more settled into your new learning environment – whether you’re taking classes remotely, on campus or a combination of both. Now that you have a routine for the classwork, you may find you have some room to fit in a class or two. Fall second session offers a convenient way to get another course completed from your list. Second session (P2) classes are only eight-weeks long and begin Oct. 17, 2020. Take a look at the schedule, filtering for Second Half Term (P2), and see what might work for you.
