School's (not) out for summer

We look at Summer 2020 and why this will be a huge opportunity for people to get ahead in their learning. In a period of economic uncertainty, higher education remains one of the best investments people can make. And for those who find themselves thrust into a new set of circumstances brought on by the coronavirus pandemic, universities offer a dynamic place to explore options and quench the thirst for learning something new. To meet the demand for summer school 2020, beginning May 18 Arizona State University will be offering more than 5,000 courses at a reduced rate to people looking for new learning opportunities and for students at all levels — including students who are currently enrolled in good standing at any university in the United States. Application fees for college students enrolled at other universities will be waived, and scholarships are available for most admitted and currently enrolled ASU students.
