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 26, 2023, for Session I and Extended Session O classes
- June 30, 2023, for Session II classes
Online Sessions and Course Structures
There are three types of courses offered in Summer 2023:
- 5-week Session 1 and 2 traditional on-campus courses. In addition to meeting in your classroom, there will be additional "out of class” work and assignments in the course website in LATTE.
- 5-week and 10-week 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 additional "out of class" work and assignments in the course website in LATTE.
10-week Extended Session O Asynchronous courses. These courses are generally presented asynchronously using a common structured course calendar. 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.
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.
