The University will offer 70 courses on the main campus during the interterm period scheduled for May 12-26, 2016. The priority enrollment deadline for classes on the Dallas campus has closed, but enrollments will still be accepted for classes with seats available.
MayTerm offerings consist of full SMU courses adapted to 11 class days of 4 hours each. All classes are taught by regular SMU faculty members and adjunct professors. In addition, they offer the same discounted tuition as all other non-Fall and Spring terms. With no general student fees attached, these classes cost about 33 percent less than a regular-term course.
Students benefit from the MayTerm for many reasons, including the opportunity to improve their academic standing, fulfill University Curriculum requirements, work toward an additional major or minor, complete prerequisites for other courses, or take a class with a distinguished professor that may be outside their degree plan.
Any SMU student in good standing is eligible to enroll in a MayTerm course. Students may take only one MayTerm course at a time and should meet with their academic adviser before enrolling for any MayTerm course.
On-campus housing in Morrison-McGinnis Residential Commons will be available for MayTerm students who are living in assigned SMU residence halls during Spring 2016. MayTerm Housing is limited; students should contact Residence Life and Student Housing as soon as possible to sign up.
Room rent is $335 for double occupancy, and a limited number of private rooms are available for $385. Approved MayTerm residents will move from their Spring Term room assignment to MayTerm/Summer Term housing in Morrison-McGinnis on the weekend of May 14-15, 2016. MayTerm housing closes at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 28, 2016.
All MayTerm residents are required to purchase a $175 all-flex meal plan. Flex Dollars may be used at dining locations around campus, including Café 100, Chick-fil-A, Subway, The Market, and Einstein Brothers.
