Credit information and academic policies
Summer students are responsible for knowing certain information located in the Undergraduate Bulletin. The Academic Policies section includes information on grades, incomplete contracts, and class attendance. Courses that are referenced as prerequisites for summer classes can also be found in the Undergraduate Bulletin.
Most courses are 4 semester credits unless otherwise noted. Students may take a maximum course load of 4 semester credits in May term and 8 semester credits in summer.
Hamline students wishing to take more than 4 credits in May or 8 credits from June through August must file a petition with the Student Administrative Services office. Visiting and post-baccalaureate program students are excluded from the credit limit. It is strongly advised that students do not take more than one course during each summer term.
Nonpayment and/or nonattendance does not drop you from your course(s) and does not result in a refund or reversal of charges. If you decide to drop a course (no tuition owed and not transcripted) or withdraw from a course (prorated tuition and W grade on the transcript), please contact Registration and Records at email@example.com by the drop or withdraw deadline listed below.
Hamline undergraduates may drop and withdraw from courses in Workday until 11:59 p.m. on the final day of the add/drop and withdraw periods. Visiting students must submit an add/drop/withdrawal form (Google Doc) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To audit a course, you must obtain permission from the instructor. Download an audit registration form (Google Doc) and have the instructor sign it or send you an email approval on the first day of class. Courses can be audited for a fee of $250 which must be turned in with the audit form by the second day of class. The audit fee is non-refundable. Courses must have a minimum enrollment of eight students for an audit to be allowed.
Financial aid and VA benefits
Financial aid is available for summer students enrolled in at least six-semester credits. Financial aid for summer normally consists of Federal Subsidized or Unsubsidized Stafford Loans, PLUS Loans, SELF, Private Loans, Minnesota State Grant, and Pell Grant (when applicable). Contact the Student Administrative Services office at 651-523-3000 for information on eligibility and application deadlines.
If you are eligible to receive VA educational benefits during the academic year, you are probably eligible to receive them for the summer. For further information, consult with the veteran's benefit coordinator at 651-523-3000.
