Gardner-Webb Offers On-Campus Undergraduate Courses for Summer 2023

GWU students

Register Now for First Session Beginning May 17

BOILING SPRINGS, N.C.—Gardner-Webb University is offering both traditional and online courses for the 2023 Summer Terms. By coming to the Boiling Springs campus or to GWU’s Charlotte Center for either one or two of the terms, students can make progress toward their degrees while learning from professors in smaller classroom settings.

“The traditional academic year typically runs for 9-10 months, screeching to a halt in May at many schools,” observed Gardner-Webb President Dr. William Downs. “At GWU we want to make sure that students instead have the opportunity to continue their studies year-round, accelerating their path toward graduation at a pace of their choosing. That’s why having a robust menu of courses available during the summer months is such a priority. We look forward to having current GWU students take advantage of these courses, as well as those from other universities who may be home for the summer and wish to pick up a course or two as a transient student.”

Enrolling in a summer term at Gardner-Webb also has the benefit of no surprises when it comes to transfer credits, noted Vice President for Enrollment Management Dean T. Clark. “Undergraduate students are guaranteed the credits they earn will apply to their current degree program at Gardner-Webb,” he affirmed. “It’s also a great way to concentrate on just one class instead of a whole semester’s worth of classes.” 

For traditional undergraduate and graduate students, the first summer session is May 17-June 20, and the second summer session is June 21-July 25. The 10-week term is May 17-July 25.

The eight-week summer term for the Gardner-Webb online undergraduate program is May 24-July 25.

Courses are offered in the Godbold College of Business, the College of Arts and Sciences and the College of Health Sciences.

Classes will also be offered in the Physician Assistant program, the School of Divinity and the Master of Business Administration 10-month program.
