These intensive classes will be as rigorous as a semester-long class and requires attendance at each class session. In addition to time spent in the classroom, students will be required to complete pre- and post-work. This work may include reading from the textbook or other sources, as well as completing online lectures, assignment and exams.

"This class was a nice way to get something out before the official start of the semester. It was a lot of work and planning around family, but it was worth it. It was a very busy class and fast paced but if you kept up with it, it was not bad. It was a nice alternative to have this class. I would consider doing another one in the future if it also meant that I could graduate faster."
