Hope is a distinguished and distinctive Christian liberal arts college with an excellent academic reputation and a demonstrated concern for individual students.  The College is situated next to the central business district of Holland, a community of 40,000 approximately five miles from Lake Michigan.  There is easy access to recreational facilities both on and off campus and to larger metropolitan areas.


Admission to May/June/July terms does not require submission of credentials and is open to almost everyone: guests from other colleges and universities; college graduates; high school graduates; high school seniors (100 and 200 level courses); high school juniors with B+ average (100 and 200 level courses); non-traditional students who desire to better themselves educationally.  All students other than degree-seeking Hope students will need to return a completed single-term enrollment form to the Admissions Office prior to Registration; they will register for summer terms beginning Monday, March 18.

The three- or four-week sessions, each for 2-4 semester hours of college credit, allow students to devote intensive study to traditional or innovative topical courses.  Independent studies and individual readings are also available with the permission of the professor and Registrar.  Most classes meet 9:00 am-12:00 noon, Monday-Friday, and require significant daily out-of-class preparation.  There is an excellent student/faculty ratio.
