For the first time, all summer courses at Troy University will be offered online rather than on campus, and registration starts Wednesday, April 15.
The move to combine the summer semester and Term 5 University-wide due to the effects of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic is an unprecedented example of TROY’s position as a pioneer in online learning that is committed and well-equipped to help students succeed.
Because most students aren’t able to access testing centers, University offices and other locations that are usually essential to student life, TROY is offering several temporary policy changes and calendar adjustments to accommodate students who encounter obstacles.
Among the changes this summer, undergraduate students may take a maximum of 12 credit hours, increased from the typical summer cap of 9 credit hours in order to help students meet the requirements for financial aid.
For financial aid, students must complete the 2019-20 FAFSA. A summer financial aid request form must be completed to request loans. Students must register for at least six credit hours to be eligible for a Pell Grant and 12 hours be eligible for a full Pell Grant.
Additionally, to make the summer registration process as smooth as possible, the University has removed most registration restrictions to allow more freedom in registering for Summer Term 5 classes. The only restrictions that will remain active are those related to business office holds, academic suspension or “dropped from program.”
Regardless of the situation, the University will be flexible in its policies and will review needs on a case-by-case basis.
The advisement and registration period for Summer/Term 5 on all campuses will take place online April 15-June 1. Registration for Fall/Term 1 begins May 4 and lasts through Aug. 17.
“Summer is a great opportunity to maintain momentum on your path towards a degree, to catch up if you are behind schedule, or even get ahead,” said Dr. Hal Fulmer, Associate Provost and Dean of Undergraduate and First Year Studies. “Summer classes serve a lot of purposes, and this year with all of our classes being online, it’s a great opportunity to take advantage of summer classes while minimizing other expenses. And our support team of tutors and advisors are fully integrated online and ready to help you.”
