2011 Summer Sessions Bulletin [ARCHIVED BULLETIN]

General Information

The academic regulations in effect during the 2010 Summer Sessions are those recorded in the 2009-2010 Undergraduate and Graduate Studies Bulletins.

Hofstra’s summer sessions attract more than 5,000 students and provide up to 18 semester hours of college course study. The information provided in this Bulletin pertains to the Frank G. Zarb School of Business, the Hofstra College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, New College for Interdisciplinary Studies, the School of Communication, the School of Education, Health and Human Services, and the NOAH Program. For information on the summer programs offered by the School of Law, call (516) 463-5917, or write: Admission Office, School of Law, Hofstra University, Hempstead, NY 11549.

The summer session program is part of the regular degree program of Hofstra University. Most classes are organized on a one-semester basis and are equivalent in method, content and credit to courses offered by the University during the regular academic year. Credits obtained in these courses may be applied toward the appropriate degrees conferred by the University and are generally accepted as transfer credits by other colleges and universities.

Undergraduate and graduate degree programs are offered during the day, in the late afternoon and in the evening. Both liberal arts courses and courses to increase competence in business, industrial and professional careers are available. Courses designed to provide special training for teachers and other groups are also offered.

While the course offerings are primarily designed to provide the opportunity for regularly enrolled students to accelerate their degree programs, special students and students from other colleges are welcome to register for all courses for which they are qualified.
