Summer Classes — Check details!

Please pay attention to Summer Course information listed below the class information on the look up classes menu in my.acu when selecting courses.  What are the dates of the class and be prepared for whichever term you have selected?  What is the location? Abilene, Dallas, Oxford, or online because you don’t want to sign up for a CORE class that is being taught at CitySquare when you intended for an Online version.  Your advisor might have once flown from Amarillo to Dallas to take a weekend ACU course that she thought was at the Dallas campus and it was actually in Abilene….the rest of that story is worth hearing so ask me sometime.
****There is no drop period for January or Summer courses once the class begins.  You have to have dropped it the night before to receive those hours back in your block.
