Important Notes
  • Registration: During the initial registration period (see below), registration is restricted by student number and you will only have one date to register for courses, between 9:00 am and 11:59 pm. Following this period, registration will be available to all students on a 24-hour basis until the final registration date for that course.
  • Gradual Space Release: During the initial registration period (see below), spaces in some high demand courses are released each day in equal numbers to ensure fair access for all students. For example, a course has 60 spaces and 15 spaces are released each day of the 4-day initial registration period. These courses will be identified by a comment included in the Aurora Class Schedule one week prior to the start of registration.
  • Summer Term Course Loads: Due to the compressed nature of Summer Term, students are cautioned not to overload themselves in taking too many courses at one time. Most students may register in a maximum of 18 credit hours in Summer Term, though some faculties/schools may have different limits. Course load limits may be extended at the discretion of the faculty, school or college in which you are registered.
  • Course Cancellations: Every effort is made to ensure that all courses listed in the Summer Session course schedule are offered. From time to time, however, courses are cancelled. In such an event, all students registered in the cancelled course are notified, and all fees associated with the cancelled course are reversed.
  • Examinations: The Summer Term class schedule includes Final Exam dates for many classes. Students may not register for courses where exams are scheduled for the same day and time. Accommodations may not be made for students who register for courses which result in Exam Conflicts - please check with a Student Advisor in your faculty, school, college or advising office.
  • Question about taking distance and online education courses? Visit Online Courses for more information.
