Summer School News
Spring may still be several weeks away, but on campus, it’s already time to think about summer school. This year, for the first time, students can use HOPE Scholarship, funded by the Tennessee Education Lottery Scholarship Program, to help them pay for summer school.
Sixty students have now confirmed their attendance in a new program in which students will be dually enrolled at UT Knoxville and Pellissippi State Community College (PSCC). The agreement formalizing the bridge program was signed this week by UT Knoxville Chancellor Jimmy G. Cheek and PSCC President Allen Edwards.
It may only be March, but UT Knoxville is looking ahead to summer and an expanded summer school program. Since 2006, UT summer school enrollment has been fairly steady at about 5,700 undergraduates. The goal is to increase this number by 20 percent this summer. Two groups of students are being targeted: incoming, first-year students who want a “jump start” on their studies and upperclassmen who need critical courses to stay on track toward graduation.
