Go - 60

Registration for the Spring Semester

will take place on Friday, January 9, 2015 from 9-10 a.m.

in the Solarium of the Sutherland Building.


Please note, due to the record number of undergraduate students registered at Abington, the number of courses available to Go-60 students will be limited. 

Also, please note that Go-60 students are responsible for the technology and facilities fees for each course.

Cost for the Fall term is:

Technology Fee

If your total number of credits above are between 1 – 4, add $86  

If your total number of credits above are between 5 – 8, add $189

Facilities Fee

If your total number of credits above are between 1 – 4, add $37   

If your total number of credits above are between 5 – 8, add $90  

So, for example, if you are taking one course the cost is

$86  + $37  = $123 total.

If you are taking two courses the cost is:

$189 + $90 = $279 total


Here is the list of courses available for Go60 Students from the fall, I will post the spring list on Wednesday, January 7 in the afternoon.
