SuperWeek

Why come to SuperWeek?

SuperWeek allows you to complete up to six hours of face to face time in a single week, or twelve hours of face to face time in two weeks!

What is a SuperWeek?

DTS has designed this special breed of Online and Distance Education course that we call SuperWeek. It’s a course format that utilizes everything you’re already accustomed to in a typical online course, but it includes intensive face to face instruction and interaction components at the Dallas campus.

Frequently Asked Questions

Registration

No. Previous SuperWeeks required students to register and/or audit both classes each week. This is no longer required. You may now register for only one of the SuperWeek courses. 

  1. Complete the SuperWeek registration form.
  2. Registered SuperWeek students (those who completed the SuperWeek registration form) will be added to courses automatically when semester registration officially opens. At that time the full cost of SuperWeek (tuition, fees, and meal package) will be billed to their account.
  3. Payment can be made to one’s account at any time before April 20, 2018, which is the payment deadline for all summer courses. Payment arrangements can be made through Tuition Management Systems (TMS).

Yes. These courses have pre- and post- course work that will span the entire semester (May 14-Aug 10, 2018).

SuperWeek registration deadlines are the same as all other Summer 2018 courses. Please refer to the Registration schedule.

Participants

Priority will be given to mobile and distance education students, because SuperWeek was designed for the mobile MACL degree program and other distance education students. However, all students are welcome to participate, if space is available. Mobile and distance education students should pre-register (on the SuperWeek website) from February 1 to March 4, 2018 to guarantee their spot. After March 5, 2018,  all students, including Dallas campus students, are eligible to register for SuperWeek.

Possibly. Spouses of students may be able to audit one or both courses each week. There are a limited number of seats available, however. Contact the professor for each course for more information. Your spouse may register to audit a SuperWeek course through the Registrar’s office (registrar@dts.edu). Spouses who audit SuperWeek courses are required to purchase the meal package.

Tuition and Costs

The total cost will include tuition and fees plus the cost of your meal package for each week (TBA-currently in negotiations). Note: Lodging and transportation are not included.

When combined with tuition and fees, SuperWeek can be paid for through the TMS program. Contact the Bursar’s office for more details.

Lodging, Meals, and Transportation
