Undergraduate students wishing to register for Summerterm courses (including on-line and hybrid courses) must register by using APR 2.0

  • The cost for one undergraduate unit for Summerterm 2014 is $3,600.00 plus a $35.00 registration fee.  This balance must be paid in advance of the start of the summer course. 
  • Students also have the option to sign up for a monthly payment plan starting in April.  There is a one-time $35 registration fee associated with the monthly payment plan.  In order to sign up for the payment plan you must either call (315-229-5581) or visit the Student Financial Services office, which is located on the third floor of the Student Center.  If any payments are missed your payment plan will be cancelled and the remaining balance will be due before the course starts.

Financial aid and loan applications should be submitted well in advance of the first day of classes. Students may also register the first day of classes (June 3rd), but should be aware that courses with fewer than five students likely will be cancelled.  Special program and independent study students must follow the special registration instructions associated with their programs of study.

Undergraduate students who advance register and pay in full during the advance registration period (Friday, 4/18 - Friday, 5/30) will enjoy a one-time $100 per person discount off their total tuition.  This $100 will be deducted at the time of pyament, provided registration for Undergraduate Session and full payment are received within the deadlines noted above.

Payments may be made by cash, check, on-line or via the payment plan set up by Student Financial Services.  A handling fee will be assessed for on-line payments.  Financial aid applicants must complete all necessary paperwork before the May 28th deadline and be certified eligible for the discount to apply.

To be eligible to do this during the summer, you must have been enrolled full-time at your home institution in the prior semester, and, during the summer session, must enroll in at least one course at your home institution. Please contact your registrar for more information.

Independent Study, Projects and Internships
Opportunities for independent study, projects and internships are available with faculty sponsorship at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. If a course you want to take is not offered, you should consider doing an independent study course. To do any of these you must:

1. Have 2.5 minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA),
2. Find a Faculty sponsor,

Completed applications must be approved in advance of Summerterm. You may not register for independent study or internships through the regular Summerterm registration process. 

Note: Students taking an independent study or participating in an internship must be registered and have paid in full in order to receive a grade and course credit.

Provisions for Students with Special Needs
St. Lawrence grants "reasonable accommodations" to documented learning-disabled students as established by the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Such accommodations, which are the student's responsibility to request, are granted as needed on a case-by-case basis and are arranged by the student and professor upon consultation with the Director of the Office of Academic Services for Students with Special Needs. Academic requirements that are an essential part of the University's educational goals may be accommodated, but may not be waived.

The Office of Academic Services also serves individuals who have learning challenges or differing abilities. Anyone who has an impairment is provided counsel on the facilities, equipment and accommodations available at St. Lawrence. Further information about St. Lawrence University's accommodation policy is available from the Office of Academic Services at 315-229-5104.

Auditing a Summerterm Course
An (A) following a course name means that course is part of the Community Auditing Program. If you're 21 or over and want to take a Summerterm course for personal enrichment without earning credit, you can do so through the Community Auditing Program. You'll enjoy relaxed requirements, but need the written permission of the instructor, who may establish his or her own guidelines. Fees: $50 for those ages 21 to 60, $35 for those over 60.

You must be covered by family or other accident and health insurance. The University is not responsible for the loss or damage of personal property regardless of what or who causes the damage. We suggest you consult with your parents or guardians and insurance advisor to ensure that you have adequate coverage for accidents, illness and personal property loss.

Summerterm Refund Policy
