Jan. 28, 2013 — On the heels of a successful alternate Fall II 2013 term that was offered to students, many of whom had educational benefits suspended due to the federal government shutdown in Oct., Park University has announced it will offer an alternate 8-week Spring I term from Monday Feb. 10, through Sunday, April 6.

This additional spring term, which will continue through the week of Spring Break, will allow students to complete a variety of accelerated online courses. Thirteen online-only courses are being offered during this additional term, including courses in communication arts, English, liberal education, public administration, psychology, sociology and social work.

The additional fall 2013 term allowed students to secure financial aid, obtain textbooks and attend the first day of class after experiencing uncertainty caused by tuition assistance suspensions during the shutdown. Sequentially, the alternate spring term will provide students an accelerated option to transition from the previous semester.

“As always, Park’s focus is upon student success and doing whatever is needed to assist students with their educational goals,” said Park University President Michael H. Droge, Ph.D. “We are deeply proud to serve multiple student populations, which at Park University include many active duty military service members, their families and veterans.”
