Summer School 2019

Summer School at CBe-learn offers a variety of online courses that will help students catch up, keep up, and get ahead! Courses run during an accelerated period in June & July and students can earn their credits in a selection of core and complementary courses.

We now offer even more chances for students to be successful over the summer. Depending on when students want to start, they can choose a seven-week or a five-week course. All courses will have the same end date (July 29), but some students may choose to kick-start their summer by starting their Summer School course in June.

Students may register for one course only, and must decide on the length of the course at time of registration (seven weeks or five weeks).

Registration ends: June 3 (7 week) and June 17 (5 week).

Students should check in Brightspace (D2L) by June 27 at the latest to make sure they have access to their Summer School course.
