Studying at AU over the summer allows students to complete a full semester course within a few weeks, concentrate on one course without the burden of a heavy course load, and can lighten students’ course loads in the fall and spring. Students can also make up a failed course, get more individualized attention, advance academic standing, and take graduate courses to prepare for graduate study.
