Summer Sessions: Graduate

Summer Sessions: Graduate

As a graduate student, you may have a program that begins with a summer cohort, or you may want to take advantage of summer to complete your program’s required courses — or add to your career skills. Summer Sessions allows you to meet your goals.

Registration

You have several options to register for courses during Summer Session 2016:

Continuing students: Online through Banner

Non-matriculated students: 

Registration Deadlines

  • Adding courses: You must register prior to the first day of the course. Registrations will not be accepted once a course has begun.
  • Dropping courses: You must drop a course before the class ends. Once the course has ended, you will not be allowed to withdraw. 
  • Internships, independent studies, individual instruction, and dissertations have an extended registration deadline. See the Academic Calendar for deadlines.

The registration deadline for summer courses varies. You can register for a course up until the first day of class. Web registration for summer courses will also vary depending on the start date of each. Web registration may close before the course starts, and students will need to register in an alternative fashion (see above alternatives).

If you receive the error message, “Registration changes are not allowed. Course status dates not within range for part of term,” web registration has closed for that course. This means one of two things:

  • The course has started and you can no longer register for it. 
  • Web registration has closed for this course, but you can register in person in Demaray 151 or fax or mail in your Summer Sessions registration form (PDF).

Summer Waitlist

If a class fills in one of the Summer Sessions, you should be able to add yourself to a waitlist. If a spot opens in a course, Banner will automatically send you an email notification of the open spot. You are responsible for registering for the course within the time period given in the email notification.

The waitlist will be active beginning the first day of Summer registration. The registration window will be 24 hours after the email notification of an open spot is sent to you, up until the Monday after Commencement for Spring Quarter. Beginning the Monday after Commencement, the registration window will shift to 72 hours for the rest of the summer.

If you miss your email notification or forget to register, you will be automatically dropped from the waitlist and the you must re-add yourself to the waitlist if you still desire a spot in the course.

The waitlist will close to “adds” a few days prior to each Summer Session course session. That means you will not be able to add yourself to a waitlist, but if you are already on the waitlist and space becomes available, you will still be able to register into a course for which you have received a notification.

Registration questions? Contact Student Academic Services at sasinfo@spu.edu.

Withdrawals

If you withdraw from one or more summer courses and want a refund, you must officially withdraw from the class(es) by filing a Withdrawal Form (PDF) through Student Academic Services. The date the form is received in SAS determines the amount of refund. If you don’t provide proper written notification to SAS, your financial obligations will remain binding, regardless of whether you attended any classes or used any contracted services.

You may not drop a class after the class has ended.
