Learn More, Get Ahead with Millikin Immersion Courses

Immersion courses are a very convenient way for current students, high school students, or community members to take courses that can result in new skills, knowledge, or a way to build up college credit in a short amount of time. Millikin offers a wide range of course offerings, including online and travel courses.

Who's taking Immersion courses?

  • Millikin students who want to get ahead on credits, raise their GPA, or improve a grade by repeating a course over the summer/winter term
  • Incoming freshmen
  • Community members interested in adult enrichment education (i.e. Driver Education), or who just want to learn something new
  • Students attending other universities, but who'd like to earn credits while home for break

Registration is open!

  • Last day to register for Summer Immersion classes will be the day before the class starts.
  • Monday, May 20, 2024 – Summer immersion term begins (see course descriptions for actual start and end dates for classes).
