1. Plan Your Schedule

1a. Guidance, Rules & Instructions for all Summer Courses

  • When selecting courses, consult the following materials and resources:
  • Credit Limits
    • Maximum: Total credits for summer school enrollment may not exceed 7 credits unless you are enrolling in the 8 credit externship. A maximum of 10 credits will be allowed if a student wishes to enroll concurrently in the 8 credit externship and the Civil Rights Seminar. Written permission from the Academic Dean, LaShanda Adams, 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 May 26, 2017.
    • Minimum: To receive financial aid, you must be enrolled in a minimum of 3 credits, including Turbo courses.
  • Any summer school course is subject to cancellation if enrollment is low.

1b. Special Rules & Instructions for Specific Summer Courses

  • Clinic (7 credits): Clinic assignments are determined by a lottery, which closed April 3rd. Students will be notified of the results by email and will receive specific instructions. The Registrar’s Office will enroll students into their assigned clinics. Once enrolled, students may not drop clinic from their schedule unless they have notified the Registrar and have received permission from Associate Dean Hannah Lieberman.
  • Criminal Law (3 credits): Only participants in the Jump Start and Fresh Start Programs are permitted to enroll.
  • Externship (4 or 8 credits): Permission is required prior to enrollment. Please complete the Externship Registration Form (pdf) and meet with Professors William Robinson or Dena Bauman.
  • 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.
  • Moot Court (2 credits): Spaces are limited for Moot Court, and section assignments may be adjusted at a later date in order to balance enrollment. Rising 3L’s will be given preference. Professors will be assigned to each section when on-line registration closes.
  • Turbo Courses are intensive classes compressed into a short time period; their class schedules differ from the standard time frame set on the Academic Calendar. Descriptions appear in the Course Catalog. For dates and times, please refer to:

        the Summer 2017 Turbo Course Schedule for:
    • Critical Race Theory (1 credit)
    • Legal Drafting (2 credits)

        and the Summer 2017 Course Schedule for:
    • Asylum and Refugee Law (1 credit)
    • Systems Change (1 credit)

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 30, 2017. 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 charges for tuition and fees not covered by financial aid must be paid immediately on-line to avoid an unpaid balance.

Summer school tuition is charged on a per credit basis. For Summer 2017, tuition rates for matriculating, non-matriculating and visiting students are $391 per credit hour for D.C. residents and $780 per credit hour for non-District residents, plus applicable fees. The Tuition Management System payment plan (TMS) is not available for the summer session.

All students are required to have health insurance coverage. If you are currently covered by the University-sponsored health insurance plan, your coverage will extend through the summer term. If you received a waiver from the University-sponsored plan during the academic year, your waiver will extend through the summer term. All other students will be automatically enrolled in the university-sponsored health insurance plan and will be charged the summer school rate. The deadline for new students to waive the coverage is May 28, 2017. Please visit the University's Student Health Insurance page for additional information.
