Benedictine Hospitality Summer Program 2016

Summer offers a great opportunity for students who would like to take additional course work they have not been able to fit into their fall or spring semester schedules.

Saint Vincent is supporting those efforts with the Benedictine Hospitality Summer Program, which offers reduced tuition rates and inexpensive summer room rates for students who are taking courses at Saint Vincent. This allows students to be confident that they will receive the high-quality instruction Saint Vincent is known for, allowing them to move ahead with their academic success.

  • Special summer rate of $495 per credit.
  • Affordable housing and board rates. 
  • Offerings targeted to student needs and requests, through a special online survey sent to our students and transfers. 
  • Students who attend other colleges are welcome, and can enjoy high-quality academics at this special rate. 
Benefits to current SVC students, transfer students and visiting students

Through the Benedictine Hospitality Summer Program:  

  • Students enjoy a reduced rate of $495 per credit (a 50-percent reduction!), and can choose to live on campus while taking courses (see below for rates).
  • For SVC students as well as entering transfer students, this option allows them to improve their QPA and maintain the high-quality course work they have come to expect from Saint Vincent.
  • For transfer students, this option will familiarize them with the campus and introduce them to Saint Vincent course work in a more relaxed environment than a full fall course load would require.
  • For area students attending other colleges, this option allows them to continue their college work with high-quality courses while living and working at home.

Institutional awards are not available to use toward summer school.
