Tuition Adjustments and Refunds

Students are able to drop their enrollments in Workday self-service up until the Friday before courses begin. You do not need a drop code from a course instructor in the summer.

After the Friday before a course begins, students must email the Summer School with their request to drop a course. Please be sure written requests are submitted from the student via the student’s Brandeis University email account. The schedule of tuition and course fee adjustments are detailed here.
