All summer courses are open to dually enrolled high school students, college students, and guests. See below for admission. Calvin offers both undergraduate and graduate courses during the summer. Students can generally take up to three regular courses throughout the summer using the calendar below.
Calendar for summer 2016
Traditional 3 and 4 semester hour compressed day-time modules:
- Session 1 (3 hours) - May 24 through June 14 (3 weeks)
- Session 1 (4 hours) - May 24 through June 21 (4 weeks)
- Session 2 (3 hours) - June 22 through July 13 (3 weeks)
- Session 2 (4 hours) - June 22 through July 20 (4 weeks)
- Session 3 (3 hours) - July 25 through August 12 (3 weeks)
Calvin also offers some half-summer evening options.
In addition to the regular on-campus courses, undergraduate online courses are being offered during 2016 summer school. The start and end dates for online courses vary according to the course.
Refund Schedule -- For all online courses, we are planning to use the below scale for determining a student's eligibility for a refund. As you can see, this schedule is based on calendar days counted from the first day of class. So, if a student drops a course during the first 10 days, she would be eligible for a full refund.
1-10 calender days = 100% refund
11-24 = 80%
25-31 = 60%
32-38 = 40%
After 38 days = 0% (No refund)
Drop deadlines -- During the fall and spring semesters, we generally allow students to drop courses until the end of the 9th week of class, which is about 70% of the term. Using a similar formula, we have determined that the last day to drop all online summer courses is Tuesday, July 5, 2016. This is also well coordinated with our refund schedule above.
Requests to drop -- Given the variable nature of the online summer courses and term, please let me know if you hear from students who request to drop your courses. We can evaluate each situation on a case-by-case basis.
The Summer-2016 schedule of courses is posted on Februrary 1. Most will meet from 8:30-11:50 AM, but some will have alternative times.
