Maximum: Total credits for summer school enrollment may not exceed 6 credits unless you are enrolling in clinic or internship. The limit for clinic is 7 credits. The limit for internship is a maximum of 10 credits, which includes the 2 credit seminar. Written permission from the Academic Dean, Laurie Morin is required to exceed these limits. To obtain permission, complete and submit the Permission to Exceed Term Limit Form (pdf) and submit it to the Registrar’s office by Tuesday, May 7, 2013.
Minimum: To receive financial aid, you must be enrolled in a minimum of 3 credits.
(For students receiving financial aid: The financial aid summer budget is based on 5 credits. If you are enrolled in clinic and taking more than 5 credits, you will need to notify Ebony Hart, Asst. Financial Aid Director (email@example.com), to have your budget customized.)
Clinic assignments are determined by a lottery. Students will be notified of the results by email. A wait list will be established for those who did not get a slot. If you have questions, please contact Karen Forman (firstname.lastname@example.org). Clinic is not available to full-time students in the Class of 2015, part-time students in the Class of 2016, visiting or non-degree students. The Registrar’s Office will enroll students into their assigned clinics.
- Moot Court
Spaces are limited for Moot Court. Rising 3L’s will be given preference. NOTE: If you are currently a first-year student and experience problems enrolling, please contact Tiffany Cooper, Asst. Registrar (email@example.com).
- Independent Study & Elective Clinics
Enrollment will be entered by the Registrar’s Office and will not be entered until the respective registration forms, found on the Forms & Schedules page, for these courses are approved and submitted to the Registrar’s Office.
The Add/Drop period is May 21-24, 2013. If a course change results in additional tuition and fees, those charges must be paid on-line at the time of the transaction. Add/Drop ends at 5:00 pm on Friday, May 24, 2013. For additional dates, see the 2012-2013 Academic Calendar (pdf).
2. Determine Your Payment Amount and Deadlines
If you register on-line, any tuition and fees not covered by financial aid must be paid by May 20, 2013. Your course selections may be deleted, if the total bill has not been paid by this deadline.
If you register in-person or late, any tuition and fees not covered by financial aid must be paid immediately on-line to avoid an unpaid balance.
Summer tuition is $360 per credit for DC residents or $720 per credit for non-DC residents. All Summer 2012 enrollees will be charged a non-refundable fee of $210 (which includes the $100 enrollment fee, $85 materials fee, and $25 health services fee). See Tuition & Fees
All students must have health insurance coverage.
If you are currently covered by the University-sponsored health insurance plan, your coverage will extend through summer. If you received a waiver from the University-sponsored plan during the academic year, your waiver will extend through summer. All other students will be automatically enrolled in the university-sponsored health insurance plan and charged the summer school rate. Non-matriculating summer students will be automatically enrolled in the university-sponsored health insurance plan at a cost of $34 for domestic students or $104 for foreign students. The fee will be refunded if the student submits adequate proof of existing, comparable coverage by May 31, 2013
. If you have questions regarding health insurance, please contact Candice Moore, firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have an overdue student emergency loan from the DCSL Foundation (Dean Broderick), you may be prevented from registering for courses until it has been paid, as per the terms of your promissory note. To repay your loan, please contact Dean Broderick’s office.
