A&M Summer Session Rates Drop Drastically

By  | 

COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Summer school will cost less for students at Texas A&M University.

Officials plan to cut rates for Texas residents from $156 to $75 per credit hour in the second summer school session of 2008.

University officials and state lawmakers say the move could let students graduate sooner, and free up seats for more incoming students.

An aide to the lawmaker who sponsored the program says if it works, it could expand to other public universities in Texas.

A similar offer at California universities six years ago boosted summer enrollment.
