Summer School Enrollment Differences
For those currently enrolled as a Brandeis student, enrollment in Summer School is a little bit different from enrolling in an academic year term.
Brandeis students will find their courses and register online in Workday. Helpful step-by-step job aids and video tutorials are available online.
These resources help students to navigate Workday and performs many common tasks, such as:
- New student onboarding
- Managing your Student Profile
- Searching for Summer classes and enrolling
- Viewing and clearing holds
- Paying account balances
- ... And many other important functions.
Before courses begin, students will be able to drop their summer enrollments in Workday. A guide to dropping and swapping courses in Workday can be found here: Drop or Swap a Course
After courses begin, please send an email from your Brandeis email address to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name and the course you wish to drop.
Please note: The summer term has a date-driven refund schedule. Please refer to the Summer School Calendar to identify the deadline for dropping a course in a given session and review the refund schedule.
- 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 26, 2023, for Session 1 and O and June 30, 2023, for Session 2, you could be dropped from your classes. If you lose your seat in a limited enrollment or consent required course, that seat may be given to another student.
- Students in specific circumstances may also request an extension on payment. Please see our Payment page to determine the qualifications and the steps to receiving an extension.
- A paper tuition bill for your summer charges will not be sent to your billing address. You are expected to review your Student Account in Workday and make appropriate payment arrangements by the deadlines.
- Students whose payers have 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 summer payment deadlines.
Summer School classes are treated the same as classes in the fall or the spring. This means that a summer school class counts toward your GPA, as credits toward graduation, and help you to fulfill major, minor and graduation requirements.
Classes taken at other schools during the summer generally only count for purpose — meaning they can help you fulfill a prerequisite, but will not count in your GPA or toward credits for graduation. (Special conditions may apply for Brandeis transfer students — transfer students should consult the Brandeis Bulletin.)
Summer School is a self-supporting program, so courses typically need a minimum enrollment of 5 students to be given. Often students wait until the deadline to enroll in summer courses, so decisions regarding course cancellation are made a week prior to the date a class is slated to 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.
As many courses have enrollment limits, you are encouraged to register as soon as you are able so you are not closed out of a class you want to take. Many summer classes fill up quickly and run wait lists.
