1a. Guidance, Rules & Instructions for all Summer Courses

  • When selecting courses, consult the following materials and resources:
  • Credit Limits
    • Maximum: In any summer semester, except for a seven-credit Clinic or an eight-credit Externship, a student (full-time or part-time) may not enroll in courses totaling more than six (6) credit hours without prior permission of the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. A student enrolled in a seven-credit Clinic or an eight-credit Externship may not enroll in additional courses.
      • To exceed this limit, you must submit an approved Permission to Exceed Term Credit Limit Form (pdf) to the Registrar’s Office (cassandra.bland@udc.edu) by May 27, 2022. To get approval for this form, please contact Associate Dean Johnson (twinette.johnson@udc.edu) by May 25, 2022.
    • Minimum: To receive financial aid during the summer, you must be enrolled in a minimum of 3 credits, including Turbo courses.
  • Turbo Courses are intensive classes compressed into a short time period; their class schedules differ from the standard time frame set on the Academic Calendar. To enroll in a non-bar-enhancement Turbo course, a student must have successfully completed all required first-year courses and have a CGPA of at least 2.500. Due to the structure and length of the Turbo Courses, in order to comply with the attendance policy, students must attend all classes. Furthermore, students will not be permitted to drop a Turbo Course after the course has started. Students wishing to withdraw from a Turbo Course (and receive a “W” on their transcript) must contact Associate Dean Johnson (twinette.johnson@udc.edu) before the last class. For dates and times, please refer to the Summer 2022 Turbo Week Schedule. Descriptions appear in the Course Catalog.
  • Any summer school course is subject to cancellation if enrollment is low.
CLASSES OF 2024 and 2025

 

Please note that students are required to follow the model course sequencing outlined in the Student Handbook, Section 3.1. Consequently:

  • Members of the Class of 2025 (PT) may only enroll in Moot Court and/or Introduction to Bar Strategies (Turbo) unless they receive permission to deviate from the model schedule as described in Student Handbook Section 3.1.3.
  • Members of the Class of 2024 (FT and PT) may not enroll in Externship. Note that to enroll in the Critical Race Theory or Negotiations Turbo courses, a student must have successfully completed all required first-year courses and have a CGPA of at least 2.500.

1b. Special Rules & Instructions for Specific Summer Courses

  • Clinic (7 credits): Clinic assignments are determined by a match process, which has closed. Participating students were notified of the results by email. The Registrar’s Office will enroll students into their assigned clinics. Once enrolled, students may not drop clinic from their schedules unless they have notified the Registrar and have received permission from Associate Dean Twinette Johnson.
  • Contracts I (3 credits): Only participants in the Jump Start and Fresh Start Programs are permitted to enroll.
    • Fresh Start Program: If you are participating in the Fresh Start Program, rather than registering yourself online, please complete an On-Site & Late Registration Form (pdf) and email it to the Registrar’s Office (cassandra.bland@udc.edu) for enrollment.

  • Introduction to Bar Strategies (1 credit): This course meets during Turbo week.

  • Moot Court (2 credits): Section assignments may be adjusted at a later date in order to balance enrollment.
  • Negotiations (1 credit): This course meets during Turbo week. Per Student Handbook Sections 3.2 and 3.4.2, to enroll in this type of Turbo course, a student must have successfully completed all required first-year courses and have a CGPA of at least 2.500. Students may receive credit for only one Negotiations course starting with course number L642, i.e., if you earn credit for the 1-credit turbo version you may not earn credit for the 2-credit version to be offered in AY22-23.

2. Determine Your Payment Amount and Deadlines

Any student whose financial aid does not cover total tuition and fees must pay the balance by May 23, 2022, or the student’s course selections may be cancelled by the University. If a student’s course selections are cancelled, the student may re-register during the Late Registration period but will incur a $150 late registration fee. During the Add/Drop and Late Registration periods, any charges for tuition and fees not covered by financial aid must be paid immediately.

Summer school tuition is charged on a per credit basis. For Summer 2022, tuition rates for matriculating, non-matriculating and visiting students are $422 per credit hour for D.C. residents, $631 for Metro residents, and $843 per credit hour for non-District residents, plus applicable fees. Any questions about the Tuition Management System (TMS) payment plan should be directed to Ms. Idehen at oidehen@udc.edu.

Students may pay by check or money order (payable to the University of the District of Columbia) or by credit card online through myUDC. Please submit checks or money orders to the Cashier’s Office located in Room 201, Building 39. [NOTE: Beginning April 4, 2022, through May 27, 2022, the Cashier’s Office will operate remotely on Tuesdays and Thursdays. On Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, the Cashier’s Office will operate in-person during the hours of 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.]

All students are required to have health insurance coverage. If you are currently covered by the University-sponsored health insurance plan, your coverage will extend through the summer term. If you received a waiver from the University-sponsored plan during the academic year, your waiver will extend through the summer term. All other students will be automatically enrolled in the university-sponsored health insurance plan and charged the summer school rate unless they waive coverage by by the waiver deadline (to be announced). Please visit the University’s First Student site for additional information.
