Penn State Lehigh Valley has announced 46 different for-credit courses that will be available for online completion this summer. 

"There are many benefits of summer sessions for current Penn State Lehigh Valley students and for students returning to the area for summer break. For example, summer courses can help students graduate early or ensure they graduate on time; these courses provide a chance to catch up or to get ahead of degree requirements; and they provide the opportunity to improve your GPA by focusing on one specific course," said Denise O'Neill, director of enrollment management at Penn State Lehigh Valley.
