Summer School Credit

A student may complete courses at summer schools conducted by regionally accredited colleges and universities for placement purposes, general degree requirements (except academic residency), and major/minor requirements as allowed by individual departments/programs. In order to be assured that credit will be granted upon satisfactory completion, students should obtain approval in advance from the Office of the University Registrar. Courses must be taken at summer programs of at least five weeks in duration with a minimum of thirty-seven contact hours. For summer work taken at institutions other than Brandeis, only grades of B– or higher will receive credit. A student may earn credit for no more than three semester courses in one summer.

Summer school taken outside of Brandeis is earned for purpose credit only and does not count towards the 128 numeric credits required for graduation.
