Why take your summer courses at Thiel College?
Thiel’s summer courses offer the same high-quality instruction and academic performance of regular academic year courses, but are smaller, less formal and encourage interaction between students and faculty. All students at Thiel during the summer have access to all academic and recreational services.
For more information, traditional students should contact the Thiel Academic Records Office at 724-589-2110. High school students should contact Stephanie Wilson, Admissions at 724-589-2345 or email@example.com.
Classes are designed for both degree-oriented students and community persons interested in personal enrichment. We invite you to register for the courses(s) of your choice. Students taking course work to meet graduation requirements should have approval from their departmental advisor.
Students who previously completed this online prep course are not required to take the course again. The Academic Records Office maintains a list of students who have already taken this course. Students registering for their first on-line course at Thiel College will be enrolled automatically in the prep course and must complete Thiel Online success before May 13, 2013. Students not completing the course will not be permitted to continue with their online summer course.
Student Course Load
Due to the condensed time of each term and the accelerated pace of instruction, each student should be aware that 8 (eight) credit hours is considered to be a full load. A four-to-six credit hour load is more realistic for many students.
Thiel College reserves the right to cancel classes with fewer than five students enrolled unless the instructor offering the course with fewer than five students is willing to teach the course.
Independent study will be permitted and is encouraged.
High School Summer Scholars
High school summer scholars include rising juniors and seniors and graduated seniors. All others considered on an individual basis. Summer Scholars may register from a select list of classes. These are noted in the Course Offerings.

Cooperative education credits will be charged at the rate of $808.00 per credit hour and registration must be approved through the Career Services Office.
