KOKOMO, Ind. — Register now for summer classes at Indiana University Kokomo and earn credits toward a degree in as few as two weeks, while saving 25 percent off tuition.
IU is offering 25 percent off summer tuition for the second consecutive year, and IU Kokomo is making it easier to attend, with two-week, four-week, six-week, and 13-week options, including the new four-week Maymester program. There are also online and hybrid classes, which include online and classroom experiences. Students must be registered by May 13 to take advantage of the tuition discount.
Visit the official website at affordability.iu.edu for tuition discount information. The site provides detailed information on the university's three newest initiatives related to affordability and financial literacy, as well as links to a host of other valuable resources for students and their families.

The discount, together with the varied schedules, offers students a chance to save money while making progress towards graduating on time, said Kathy Parkison, interim vice chancellor for academic affairs.
"Between the tuition discount and all our new class offerings, this is an interesting, dynamic way to help students move towards graduation," she said. "The tuition discount relieves some of the financial burden for our students and their families."
Summer school also offers a chance to take required prerequisite or introductory courses, or to explore a new area. It also is an opportunity for new students to brush up on college math skills or to acclimate to the campus with one course.
Just a few of the two-week classes include criminal justice in action, teaching reading and math, and foundations of coaching. Four-week classes are available in allied health and nursing. Six-week and full-term classes are available in all subject areas.
Maymester is new to the campus, offering students a chance to earn three credits in a short time period, in an immersive class. A few offerings include urban geology, complete with field work, a study of Asian American literature from World War II (which includes travel to Hawaii), and a creative performance class in which students will write, act in, and direct a play.
"Our faculty were very creative in developing new ideas for exciting, interesting classes," Parkison said. "We're excited about all the new opportunities for students to grow and learn at IU Kokomo."
Summer session registration is currently underway. Classes are open not only to IU Kokomo students, but to those from other campuses and universities, as well as community members. Currently enrolled students should contact their academic advisor for more information. Anyone else interested should contact the Office of Student Success and Advising at 765-455-9309 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
