Course Cancellation and Schedule Changes

Summer School is a self-supporting program, so courses must meet a minimum enrollment to be given.

Students are encouraged to register at their earliest convenience, and no later than May 22, 2020 for Session 1 and Session O (Online) and June 26, 2020 for Session 2, so that enrollment levels can be determined before classes begin. Students who have enrolled in courses that are canceled due to low enrollment may enroll in another open course or receive a full tuition and fee adjustment.

Decisions regarding course cancellation are made just prior to the date a class is slated to begin.  This allows us to accurately assess whether there are sufficient enrollments to mount the course.  Impacted students will be contacted via their Brandeis email address.  The enrollment minimum depends upon the rank of the instructor and any additional expenses that need to be funded from course tuition.

Schedule Changes

The University reserves the right to substitute instructors, rearrange the order of lectures or change other program details when necessary.

All refunds have to be initiated by the student or their proxy via SAGE.  As you can imagine, for many Brandeis student, leaving a credit on the account to reduce the next semester's billing charges is the most frequently used option. Of course, that won't work for everyone so here's an overview of the refund process from the Student Financial Services website:

Summer 2021

We're busy planning Summer 2021! Take a look at our 2020 summer classes to get an idea of the classes we typically offer (courses change each summer). Let us know if there are classes you'd like to see offered!

Summer 2020 was online

Due to COVID-19, all Brandeis Summer School classes were online for Summer 2020. There were two models of instruction 5-week synchronous "remote learning" and 10-week asynchronous online courses. We are not certain if we will be having classes on-campus this summer, but will update students as soon as we know.
