First-Year Headstart

Summer BeachMost first-year students do not realize that they can take classes during the summer BEFORE their fall semester starts without going through any other application or approval process.  Taking advantage of the First-Year Headstart opportunity is a great way to get a head start at UNC Charlotte. Students typically take 1-2 courses, in most cases courses that fulfill requirements. Most students take courses during the second summer session which runs from early July until mid August -- and there‚Äôs even a 12-day break before classes start for that last trip to the beach!
