Welch College recently announced a new expanded summer school program for the Summer of 2018, according to Dr. Charles Lea, Special Assistant to the President at Welch College.
“College students who are home for the summer from both public and private colleges and universities or new students waiting to begin in the fall can attend Welch and improve their chances of completing a bachelor’s degree in only four years,” Lea said. “Welch College is expanding offerings, simplifying the admission process, and reducing tuition for new students, as well as transient students from other colleges or universities while home in Sumner County for summer break.” Courses will also be available for high school juniors and seniors who wish to obtain dual enrollment credit.
General education, Bible, and selected science courses will be offered in two five-week and two two-week summer sessions. College officials said that the admission process for the summer terms has been streamlined, making it easier to enroll.
“In addition to the expanded offering, Welch will introduce a new instructional delivery option, which allows students to attend class five days a week for two weeks and complete the remainder of the course through an independent study option during either five-week term,” said Welch Provost Matthew McAffee. “Most importantly, credits are transferable.”
The lower tuition structure will make Welch the most cost-efficient Christian college in the mid-state. Welch College is a Christian college that offers over 40 programs of study and is ranked by U.S. News and World Report as one of the South’s “Best Colleges.”
“This summer, students can have it all: lower cost, highest quality, transferable credits, innovative instructional delivery, and a Christian environment,” Lea said. “Don’t waste the summer break. Experience a summer at Welch and see the difference!”
