Registration must be completed by the first day of class.

Continuing Woods College students should register online, using the UIS system.

BC day students register for summer courses in Student Services, Lyons Hall, after obtaining a Course Approval Form from their own Dean and following the procedures set forth by each dean.

PAPER SUMMER REGISTRATION FORM  - Form is for Woods College and Non-BC students only.

BC students begin in their Dean's office (as Bove).

Summer Withdrawals, Drop/Add, and Refunds
Students wishing to withdraw from a summer course must complete an official withdrawal form in the Summer Session Office in St. Mary’s Hall South, or send a written notification of withdrawal to the Summer Session Office. All course withdrawals must be submitted to the Summer Session Office prior to the final scheduled class meeting.

If a student drops a course in the Summer Session Office, before the second meeting of the course, no record is maintained; for students withdrawing after this, a grade of W is recorded on the student’s transcript and no academic credit is granted. 

Students dropping a course before the second class meeting will receive a 100% refund of tuition. Tuition and laboratory fees are refundable; the registration fee is non-refundable.
There are no refunds for students withdrawing from a class after second class meeting of a course.

Withdrawal from a course must occur prior to the day before the final exam for that course.

Students are responsible for the tuition for all courses for which they have registered.

Summer Grades and Transcripts
Final examinations are held during the last scheduled meeting of the course. All course work, independent study, readings and research should be completed by the end of the summer. October 1, 2016, is the final date for instructors to change summer 2016 grades and incompletes. Faculty submit their summer grades directly on-line.  Students may access their summer grades by using their BC username and password to log into the Agora portal.  Students may request official transcripts of summer courses from the Student Services Office either in person, at Lyons Hall, or via the Agora portal.
