Admission to Brandeis Summer School rests on the assumption that each student knows best what they want to do, and can do. Enrollment is open to a wide cross-section of qualified persons, including students currently enrolled in other colleges and universities as well as individuals not currently engaged in any formal educational program, but who hold a high school diploma or its equivalent.
Your Financial Commitment
By registering for a Brandeis Summer School course you are making a financial commitment. All students are required to review and sign a Financial Responsibility Agreement during the registration process, the language of which is available online. You will not be permitted to enroll in courses at Brandeis without completing this important agreement.
Late Registration FeeStudents may be assessed a Late Registration Fee of $50 for registrations that take place after:
- May 21, 2021 for Session I and Extended Session O classes
- June 25, 2021 for Session II classes
Online Sessions and Course Structures
There were two types of online courses offered in summer 2021:
5-week Session 1 and 2 remote learning courses met in real time (ET) via Zoom and webcams to replicate the experience a student would have if seated in a classroom. There will also be “out of class” work and assignments in the course website in LATTE.
10-week Extended Session O courses. These courses are generally presented asynchronously using a common structured calendar of readings, assignments and interactions with classmates. Generally, students do not need to be online in front of their computer at set days and times each week. Instead, students have shared course deadlines for completing the readings, watching and creating videos, submitting assignments, critiquing peer work, posting original and thoughtful contributions to online discussion forums, and replying to classmates. However, a few 10-week Extended Session O classes may meet in real time (ET) utilizing Zoom. These Extended Session O courses will have days and times associated with their course listings.
Due to anticipated demand, we recommend students sign up for our email list to be notified when registration opens, to receive updates on recently added classes, and to receive reminders of important deadlines.
Please note that there are slight differences in the registration process for current Brandeis students, incoming Brandeis students, transfer students, visiting students and high school students. Please be sure to review the page that is relevant to your situation.
If you are interested in enrolling in an online course, you can enroll directly in Sage. A guide to registration in Sage can be found here. Please consult the guide, as there is an extra step to summer registration where students must first click "Summer School Term Activation" to activate your student record for Summer Term.
In the summer, instructors do not issue enrollment consent codes. If you are enrolling in an upper-level Economics course (most courses that are ECON 80 or higher require a code), please contact Leslie Yancich, the ECON Department administrator, for a code.
