How do summer classes differ from courses offered in the fall and spring semesters?
During the summer semester MCLA will offer an assortment of online classes as well as blended courses. These classes are generally six weeks long.

How can I get a course description?
The course descriptions for all courses can be found in the MCLA course catalog.

How do I order transcripts once my grade has been posted?

What if I decide to drop a class?
Students will receive 100% refund if a class is dropped prior to the second class meeting or 48 hours into an online class. After the cutoff point students will be able to withdraw with a grade of W until the midway point but will not be refunded for the class.

Matriculated students may apply for summer financial aid using the form below. Students must be registered for a certain number of credit hours to qualify for aid (6 credits for undergraduates and 5 credits for graduates). A completed FAFSA must be on file, as summer financial aid is reviewed on any remaining eligibility for the academic year. Matriculated students not eligible for summer financial aid should contact Student Financial Services to discuss alternative loan options.

Non-matriculated students may apply for a SallieMae Smart Option loan.
