YORK, Pa. — It’s never too early to think about summer classes at Penn State York, as registration is underway now. Two six-week sessions offer students the opportunity to take day, evening or online classes. Some classes may also combine online with face-to-face instruction.

Summer classes offer students a chance to get ahead for fall, catch up on classes, or just get started. The first summer session begins Monday, May 15, and continues through Friday, June 23. The second summer session begins Wednesday, June 28, and continues through Wednesday, Aug. 9.

Penn State York's small class sizes offer students the opportunity to get to know faculty members and work in research areas using state-of-the-art lab facilities. The two summer sessions also allow students to take a class and still have time to enjoy the summer.

High school students can put the summer to good use by taking a college course through dual enrollment. Dual enrollment allows eligible high school juniors and seniors to take college courses at a 50 percent tuition reduction, while also helping students to get a jump on their college careers by earning college credits while still in high school. For more information on dual enrollment, contact the Penn State York Admissions Office at 717-771-4040 or visit
