Important Note for Freshmen Interested in Summer School

To qualify for summer admission, incoming freshmen need to be accepted to the University. Incoming freshmen registering for summer must register as "non-matriculating" students and maintain their admission date in the fall so as not to jeopardize their financial aid. Most types of financial aid cannot be applied to summer school. However, summer tuition is discounted in comparison to tuition during the academic year.
