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.

Attendance Policy

It is recommended that students log in to their online classroom at least 2-3 times a week, or as directed by their instructor. If a student does not participate in any academic activity for any 14 consecutive calendar days while school is in session, after the add/drop period, the faculty will notify student’s advisor, Registrar ( and the Center for Student Success ( The notification will include the date of student’s last academic activity (such as in-person class attendance, submission of an assignment or a test, email discussion of an academic topic, etc.). This action will result in the withdrawal of the student from the class with grade a of W (prior to 60% day of term) or F (after 60% day). Student may be subject to financial aid re-payment, based on the date of the last academic activity.
