Summer: Registration

Registration Information

While the Summer Sessions provide the opportunity for students to catch up or get ahead on their curriculum map, there are limits to the number of credits one can enroll in. For students seeking to take multiple courses over the Norwich Summer Sessions, the maximum course load in Session I and II is seven credits per session, as long as there is no enrollment in Session III. The maximum course load in Session III is 14 credits, as long as there is no enrollment in Session I and II. Only one course is permitted during the two-week Special Session.

For students seeking simultaneous enrollment in Session I or II and Session III, the total credits taken must add up to nine or less (when the total of credits from all sessions is divided by two). Students who wish to register for more credits must complete an academic petition form for approval by the Committee on Academic Standing and Degrees. This form is available through the Norwich Registrar's Office.

Registration opens April 15, 2018.
