Why should you take a summer class at UGA? University of Georgia offers summer sessions for students in Georgia, online, and around the world. Take a class to stay on track for graduation. Get a class that normally fills up during fall or spring semesters. Take an online class while you work or study abroad during the summer. And remember, HOPE can be applied to summer tuition.
