  • Registration

    The Summer Session online course registration request form and instructions can be found in the Student Portal. Click "Courses" and select "Summer Session" from the drop-down, or type "Summer Session" in the Portal Search field. If you have any trouble accessing this, please email the Summer Session office at summer@wesleyan.edu

    Online course registration request form submissions accompanied by full payment and faculty advisor approval will be processed in the order received. The request, payment and any approvals must be fully complete before enrollments are processed.  No seats are saved for students majoring in the course's concentration. For example, no seats will be saved for students majoring in COMP in COMP 112Z. 

    Students who participate in Wesleyan Summer Session are bound by the policies in the Wesleyan University Student Handbook including the Honor Code and the Code of Non-Academic Conduct, as well as the academic regulations.

    Students who have incompletes in the spring term and do not submit work before the start of Summer Session are not permitted to participate in Summer Session. Students will be contacted by their class dean and dropped from Summer Session; tuition charges will be reversed. Please discuss this schedule with your advisor when you request approval to register for Summer Session.

     

  • Veterans and Full-Time/Part-Time Status
    In order for students to be considered full time during a winter/summer session, students are required to be enrolled in a minimum of 0.75 credits (3 credit hours). Students who fall below this minimum will be reported to the VA and this will affect tuition payments.
  • Policy Regarding Incompletes
    Please note: Incompletes will not be granted for summer sessions. Rare exceptions to this policy may be made in the case of serious emergencies, by petitioning the class dean.
  • How to Drop, Withdraw, or Swap

Non-Degree Students
  • Registration

    Wesleyan Summer Session is open to college students who feel they have the academic qualifications and stamina to complete an intellectually challenging course in a compressed schedule.

    Additionally, we welcome visiting students during all academic terms. For information regarding study during fall and spring please click here.

    Summer Session is short and intensive, so the drop/add period is limited to the first day of classes. All switches and drops must be made prior to the second meeting of a class. For this reason, it is best if students comprehensively discuss academic plans with their advisors at their home institutions, including seeking guidance for transferring credits, in advance of registration.

    Students who participate in Wesleyan Summer Session are bound by the policies in the Wesleyan University Student Handbook including the honor code and the code of non-academic conduct, as well as the academic regulations.
