Can I enroll if I'm not a St. Lawrence student?

How many courses can I take?
Two per session, including independent study or projects. Students must petition to take a third course. Contact Lorie MacKenzie.

What's the class size?
Class size is typically 5-10 students, which means careful attention from your professors, an opportunity for intensive learning and close cooperation with classmates.

What's the cancellation policy?
Any regular course with fewer than five students registered at the end of the second day of classes may not be continued. If that happens, you can register for another course.

Where will I live and eat?
Students are encouraged to live on campus but are permitted to live off campus during Summerterm. All students are encouraged to put money on their CWA and can use it in the on-campus dining facilities, or off-campus.

Summer Housing Agreement forms are due in the Residence Life Office by Friday, May 4th.

Can I get a job, too?
Job postings are available at the Financial Aid office.
