Skyhawk Summer Academy enrolling now through May 1

The University of Tennessee at Martin will host two sessions of the 2019 Skyhawk Summer Academy on June 10-14 and July 15-19 for rising high school juniors and seniors. The registration fee is $40 per person, and registration is open until May 1. Students only attend one campus session.

Participating students will complete online coursework culminating in one week of on-campus hands-on experience. Online coursework is self-paced and hosted through Canvas, UT Martin’s online learning platform. Academic areas include chemistry, nursing, veterinary health technology, animal science, agriculture, fine arts, computer science, library technology and more.

These courses do not include college credit. However, participating students interested in pursuing these degree fields as undergraduate students at UT Martin upon graduation from high school will have their admissions application fee waived.
