Summer Programs

Degree candidates must apply to the Summer Programs (Clinical Effectiveness Program or Summer Session in Public Health Studies) in order to participate in the Summer Programs and are charged the per-credit rate for each course and the summer registration fee. The maximum number of credits allowed in the summer is 15 credits in the Clinical Effectiveness Program and 10 credits in the Summer Session. Billing and credit limits for the SM in Health Care Management is available from the Department of Health Care and Management.

Students are charged on a per-credit basis for all the courses they take in the summer. Academic credits taken during the summer can count toward the degree requirements and the tuition paid counts toward the student’s tuition obligation for the particular degree. Students should study their choices carefully before requesting enrollment in summer courses since such enrollment may affect them financially. Students in this situation should contact Isabelle Bourdonne in the Registrar’s Office (617-432-0168) for details.

Non-degree summer students are charged on a per-credit basis for their courses as well. If such a student applies for admission to a degree program and is accepted within five years of initial matriculation, up to 20 academic and financial credits may be counted toward the degree program.

Summer tuition is prorated based on the summer 2014 withdrawal schedule.
