It's not too early to plan for summer school courses

It’s not too early to begin thinking about taking an Alfred University (AU) summer course; registration begins Monday, March 17, 2014. 

The first summer session will take place from Monday, May 19 through Friday, June 27 and the second session will take place Monday, June 30 through Friday, Aug. 8. Students are able to register up until the first day of class, but are strongly encouraged to register as early as possible. Summer sessions offer a variety of courses for students who wish to accelerate their programs, who need to complete certain requirements, or who wish to expand their knowledge or skills in a variety of fields and subjects.

Summer classes at AU are open to students, incoming freshmen, transfer students, and undergraduate and graduate students from other colleges and universities. Courses at the 100 and 200 levels are also open to local, commuting high school juniors and seniors. All students must register for courses. Currently enrolled AU full-time and part-time students must register for summer courses via online BannerWeb. Others college students must use this form: High school students must use a special registration form:

Campus residences will be open from noon Sunday, May 18 to noon Saturday, June 28, 2014 for the first session and from noon Sunday, June 29 to noon Saturday, Aug. 9, 2014 for the second session. Students requiring summer housing must complete a summer housing contract and submit it to the Office of Residence Life at least four weeks prior to their first class: Students will be notified of their housing assignment shortly before the start of their session.

There will be no meal plan available during the first summer session but students will have access to kitchen facilities in suites or apartments. The dining hall will be open during most of the second session and there may be a limited meal plan for students residing on campus.  

Registration must be completed prior to the first class with full payment due on or before the first class meeting. A $35 late registration free will is assessed after the first day of class. In order to receive a 100 percent refund for a class, a student must drop the course online before midnight of the first day of class and by the second day of class to receive a 50 percent refund. The halfway point of the course is the last day to withdraw from a course.

Several summer courses will be offered in an online or an online “hybrid” format, online courses with some on campus meeting dates. The first class meeting day, time, and location will be indicated in the course description in Banner. Subsequent required class meeting days and times will be included in the course syllabus.

The administration reserves the right to cancel any course for which fewer than two students register. Students traveling to campus for summer courses should check course status before their arrival.
