“Maymester,” a special three-week mini-term, will be offered in May at the University of Tennessee at Martin.
The term will span May 17-June 4.
“Given the overwhelming interest in our first-ever Maymester last year, we are looking forward to an even more successful 2010 term,” said Dr. Jerald Ogg, vice chancellor for academic affairs. “The deans and chairs have been working with the faculty to fine tune the courses we will offer, and we hope the students will find it both convenient and educationally fruitful.”
Each in-person class will meet daily (Monday through Friday). The four standard course time slots for three-hour courses will be as follows: 7:30-10:30 a.m., 10:45 a.m.-1:45 p.m., 2-5 p.m. and 6-9 p.m. The maximum load will be six semester hours.
Registration for the special term will begin April 5 and end at 5 p.m. May 17. Late registration will be available until 5 p.m. May 18, but a late registration fee of $50 will apply. The normal in-state tuition and fees of $242 per credit hour ($253 for online courses) will apply. Fee payments will be due by 5 p.m. May 18.
Financial aid will be available to the same extent there is assistance available during the regular summer terms.
There will be several courses offered online or as in-person/online “hybrids.” The Jackson, Parsons, Ripley and Selmer centers are planning to offer courses during the “Maymester” in addition to the summer terms.
Book loans for the mini-term courses will be available, as will housing.
The mini-term will be followed by two five-week summer terms, one beginning June 7 and the second on July 6.
