Bobcat 4X4 Summer School
Bobcat 4x4 is Montana State University's new summer school format designed to help students catch up or get ahead in their progress toward degree. Classes meet four days a week for four weeks, with fast-paced courses in an immersive environment. Flexibility in scheduling and focus in studies are cornerstones to this new format.
Students are limited to 6-credits in any given 4-week part-of-term. While a student could take two three-credit classes, that is generally not recommended. Rather, the intent is for students to take one class per 4-week session. By taking one face-to-face class per part-of-term a student can still complete an entire semester's worth of coursework over the summer! A student may also take an online class over the 6 or 12-week parts-of-term to round-out their summer experience. Picking the best option is conversation students should have with their academic adviser.
The summer courses will be intensive with each of the 16 class days covering a week's worth of material.
1 credit = 10 hours/week of class time and studying
There are 3 4-week parts-of-term offered this summer: May start (May 14-June 7), June start (June 11-July 6) and July start (July 9-August 2)
200+ classes spread across three sessions means that students have the flexibility to spend a month or two in class and the rest of summer taking advantage of jobs or internships and enjoying summertime in Bozeman.
