“There are a few other schools in the country, but none in our region, that offer this kind of program,” Provost Michael Renner said in making the announcement. “We're proud to have this innovative program at Mansfield.”

MU will offer summer classes in three sessions; May 22-June 8, June 12-June 29 and July 5-August 4. Students who qualify for full-time status may be eligible to receive free on-campus housing and a meal plan.

In addition, an enhanced schedule of recreational and cultural activities, on and off campus, is being planned for summer school students.

“Faculty and staff from the entire Mansfield community deserve congratulations for their work together to make this new program possible,” Renner said. “We have an extensive program of high-quality academic course offerings, numerous student activity programs, and the resources of the Twin Tiers to draw upon to offer a rich experience to students who spend the summer at Mansfield.”

Renner added that the new innovations at Mansfield are meant to accommodate students of every kind. “This is an opportunity for new high school graduates to get a head start on college, or for continuing students from Mansfield or elsewhere to catch up or get ahead in their academic programs,” he said. “Some students like the opportunity to focus on fewer courses at one time, and summer is an ideal time to do that. We have a wonderful campus, and this region is spectacular in the summer. Recreational opportunities are at our fingertips and it's a perfect way for a student to advance their education in a terrific setting. Attending summer school is a great way for students help make sure they can graduate on time.”

Courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels will be offered, as well as classes that qualify for ACT 48 credit.
