Yes. Summer school registration opens on March 1st , which is when you can sign up for courses. Remember, in order to complete your summer registration, your fees are due by April 28th.
If you discover that you have met the GA requirements when your marks are posted in late April/early May, you can cancel your summer course before the 100% refund deadline to get a full refund. Refund schedules are posted on the Student Accounts website.
If you are planning on taking courses during the summer, note the Summer timetable and enrolment instructions are now available on the Arts & Science website. You are limited to 1.0 credits per semester in the summer (maximum 2.0 credits for summer), and should prioritize your efforts and attention on any incomplete GA courses.
If you do not think you will be able to successfully meet your GA requirements by the end of Summer session, set up an appointment with an academic advisor on the RC Portal to discuss your situation. The earlier you meet with an advisor to discuss your situation, the sooner you can have clarity going forward.
