If you are thinking about taking summer courses, the process is outlined below. Permission for summer course work is obtained from the Office of the Dean of Undergraduate and Graduate Studies (Harkins 213). Summer work is for make-up or enrichment purposes only, not to “advance your status” or to “graduate early.”
Summer School at Providence College is run by the School of Continuing Education (SCE). Official Registration begins 3/17/14—there is no online registration for SCE summer session.
1. If you want to take summer courses at PC, your first step is to consult your academic advisor, class dean, and/or your Cyberfriar Audit Evaluation to determine your unfulfilled degree requirements.
2. Next, review the Summer 2014 Dean’s SCE Approved Course List. This list contains the courses approved for day school students, and how they will be applied to your program of study (major/minor, core, free elective credit, etc.). Please take special note of your class year when reviewing the day school course equivalency for Core courses. Day school students will NOT be permitted to register for SCE courses that do not appear on the Dean’s SCE Approved Course List. See PDF below.
3. Once you find a course or courses you are interested in taking, phone 401.865.2495 to schedule an appointment with your class dean (Harkins 213). That’s where you will fill out the Course Approval Form and Course Registration Form.
4. Finally, you will process these forms in the School of Continuing Education Office on a first-come, first-serve basis (Harkins 109). The cost per 3-credit course is $939 and payment is required at the time of registration. Online courses carry the additional fee of $70. Lab courses have additional fees as well.
NOTE: When these courses are completed, the credits and grades will automatically be transferred onto your day school transcript.
Feel free to contact the Dean’s Office regarding any additional summer course work questions: Harkins 213 | 401.865.2495.
