Lamar University registration begins for May Mini, Summer and Fall classes

Registration will begin Monday, April 11 for Lamar University’s May mini, summer and fall sessions.

Early registration is even more important this year because the university will not be able to offer as many small enrollment sections of classes as in years past, said Kevin Smith, senior associate provost. He urges students to register for classes as soon as possible so they will be able to take the classes they want at the times most convenient for them.

The May mini-session will run from May 13 to May 31.

Four summer sessions will be offered. Summer 1 will be June 2 to July 7. Summer II will be July 8 to Aug. 11. Summer 3 will be June 2 to Aug. 11. Summer 4 will be June 16 to July 21.

Fall classes will begin Aug. 22.
