Summer School Enrollment Differences

Enrollment in Summer School is quite different from enrolling in an academic year term.

  • There is no "shopping period" for summer courses. Please submit your course selections in SAGE only when you are certain you will be attending the Brandeis Summer School.

  • There is an additional step to enrolling in summer courses.  Brandeis degree candidates must activate themselves in summer term before they can enroll, as can be seen in steps 2 and 3 of the following documentation. If you have difficulty registering, there are detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to register in SAGE are here. If you have continuing issues, please contact the Summer School via email at or by dialing 781-736-3424.
  • In the summer, instructors do not issue enrollment consent codes. Please email to request a consent code. If you are enrolling in an Economics course this summer, please contact Leslie Yancich, the Econ Department administrator,, for a code. 

  • The Summer School does not use consent codes for dropping a course or require an instructor’s signature for a drop form. Only INT 92G uses consent codes to drop because special special visa status may be involved for international students.  To drop a course, please send an email from your Brandeis UNET address to including the course you wish to drop. Please refer to the Summer School Calendar to identify the deadline for dropping a course in a given session.
  • By registering for Summer School courses, you are making a financial commitment. Online enrollment presumes payment by the stated deadlines. If payment is not complete by the close of registration, May 25 for Session I and June 29 for Session II, you will be dropped from your classes.  You will lose your slot in any limited enrollment or consent required courses.  
  • Specialized attention in small classes from faculty and one-on-one assistance from Summer School staff. 

  • Students in specific circumstances may request an extension on payment.  Please see the Tuition and Fees section to determine the qualifications and the steps to receiving an extension.
  • No tuition bill for your summer charges will be sent to your billing address. You are expected to review your Student Account in SAGE and make appropriate payment arrangements by the expressed deadline.

  • Students whose payers have SAGE proxy log-ins may receive an automatically generated message that contains a different deadline for payment.  This message applies to a Fall Term and Spring Term, not to the Summer Term.   Please advise your proxies about the payment deadline.
  • All courses must meet an enrollment minimum in order to be given.  Often students wait until the deadline to enroll in summer courses, so decisions on cancellations are made the week before courses begin.
