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:
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
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.
