MARTIN, Tenn. – The University of Tennessee at Martin will charge on-campus tuition and fees for online Maymester and summer courses in response to the UT System's decision to conduct all summer classes online, saving students additional fees for online courses, according to university officials.
Officials announced the decision Tuesday afternoon in a UT Martin press release.
Online classes are traditionally more expensive than on-campus courses for in-state students. The university plans to adjust the fees to reduce the charges to the online rate.
“UT Martin is committed to providing a high quality educational experience for students pursuing online coursework options,” said UT Martin Chancellor Keith Carver. “I am excited about this initiative to offer our students these courses at a reduced rate this summer.”
Maymester courses will run May 11-29. Summer courses are scheduled for June 1 - July 2 and July 6 - Aug. 7. UT System President Randy Boyd announced that all summer 2020 courses would be online on April 1 in response to COVID-19.
“Our faculty and staff have done an incredible job of moving to an entirely digital platform for the spring semester,” Boyd said. “I am confident they will continue to provide an inspired learning experience for our students who are enrolled in summer classes.”
