Summer Classes at UNA

UNA has opportunities both on-campus and ONLINE for students to become Early College students or, as a new high school graduate, to get ahead. By taking a summer class at UNA they can lighten their fall 2016 course load and work to make that 4.0! Summer Sessions at UNA are short, concentrated sessions that allow students to get ahead, get adjusted, or get caught up. Because the timetable is compressed, credit hours can be earned in a month's time and the student is ready for the next challenge!
