New students must submit an Immunization Form before course registration can be completed. Please see Immunization Requirements, below.

Registration must be completed prior to the first class, with full payment due on or before the first class meeting. Students who have registered, submitted their Immunization Form, and paid their bill should go directly to their classes at the start of the session. After that time late fees will be assessed and, since some classes have limited enrollment, no guarantee of admission can be made.


Registration of High School Students:
Local high school juniors and seniors, commuting from home, can take summer courses at the 100 and 200 levels. High school students must use a special registration form. The approval of the student's school counselor or principal is required each year. Special tuition arrangements made for high school students to attend AU classes during the fall and spring do not apply during the summer. If a high school student wishes to take a course during the summer, he/she must register, pay full tuition for the class and provide proof of immunization. (If the student is eligible for tuition remission, forms must be submitted at least two weeks before the class begins.) Registration for any course depends on available openings. High school students enrolled in summer courses are not guaranteed acceptance into any AU degree program at a later date. Campus housing is not available for high school students attending summer courses.


Requirements for International Students:

On-line and "Hybrid" Courses:
Several summer courses are being offered in an on-line or "on-line hybrid" format. (Hybrids are on-line courses with some required on-campus meeting dates. The first class meeting day, time and location will be indicated in the course description in Banner. Subsequent required class meeting days and times will be included in the course syllabus.)

Courses offered totally on-line or as on-line hybrids are identified with an asterisk in the "quick reference course list" accessible on the Summer Term courses webpage.

Please check out the Online Learning Readiness Checklist to view the technical requirements for on-line courses, and to assess your readiness to take an on-line course.

Students with questions about on-line course technology requirements should contact the Alfred University ITS Helpdesk at 607.871.2222 or via email.


As final grades are recorded they become viewable and printable by students on BannerWeb. Requests for copies of official transcripts should be made to the Registrar’s Office in the Student Service Center. See the Transcript Request web page for information on how to obtain an official transcript.


Transfer of Credits:
It is a good idea for Summer Sessions students who are regularly enrolled at other colleges and universities, and who intend to transfer credits from Alfred University to their home institutions, to secure advance approval of their Alfred University course selections from their home institutions. Even though courses at AU are fully accredited and are generally accepted for transfer credit, decisions on transferability rest with the receiving college or university.


Summer Term Schedule Changes and Course Cancellations:
Due to circumstances beyond our control it is sometimes necessary to make changes to the summer course schedule. Course information may be changed, courses may be added or cancelled. In the event a change is made, we will do our best to contact the students affected. The most up-to-date course information will be accessible online at BannerWeb.

Should a course need to be cancelled, the University will make every effort to notify students enrolled in canceled courses prior to the first class meeting via email to their AU Email account (the University's official form of communication). It is the students' responsibility to check their email and this website regularly for summer course additions, changes, and cancellations. It must be understood, however, that under certain circumstances beyond our control the decision to cancel a course may not be made until the first class meeting.

Students traveling a distance to campus for summer courses should check course status before setting out on their trip to avoid the expense and inconvenience of a wasted trip in the event their course has been cancelled.



Residence Hall Opening and Closing Dates:
Campus residences will be open starting at 2:00 PM on Sunday, May 13 to noon Saturday, June 23, 2018 for Summer Term I and from noon Sunday, June 24 to noon Saturday, August 4, 2018 for Summer Term II. Students must check-out by noon.
