Summer Session Registration

Overview

Current Butler students should register for summer classes in the same way they register for fall or spring classes using My.Butler.edu.

Graduate students must apply for Graduate Admission to be admitted. Although graduate students may take an unlimited number of courses as a non-degree student, a maximum of 12 credits taken as a non-degree student may be applied toward the student's selected master's degree program.

Undergraduate students at other institutions who want to take undergraduate classes during the summer but do not want to be admitted to a degree program may do so through Summer Guest Program. There is no fee to apply, and no transcripts from your home school are required. We accept registration requests up to the day before the class starts. A maximum of 18 credit hours may be taken. Follow these steps to enroll:

  1. Choose your classes. Check Class Search (summer schedule available by mid-December) for summer schedule details: updates, descriptions, days and times, dates, and available seats.
  2. Complete the Summer Guest Student Registration Form(PDF). Mail or fax the complete document to the address on the form. Please be sure to sign and return both pages. We will begin processing summer guest student registration forms two weeks after summer registration opens.
  3. We will send you an email confirmation of your class registration after your enrollment.
  4. The Office of Student Accounts offers electronic billing statements (E-Bills).

Academic Calendar

The summer session is a 14-week term comprised of two parts. Classes meeting between May 13 and June 28 are in the first part of term. Classes meeting July 1–August 16 are in the second part of term.

  • Final exams will be held during the last scheduled class session
  • Academic calendar drop/add/withdraw dates are calculated by determining the number of weeks a course meets; the calendar is the same for each part of term
  • Registration for courses is open until the close of the drop/add period for each course
  • Please note that the drop date to receive a waiver of 100% of the tuition is earlier than the drop date shown below. For the exact full refund date and other information regarding the Institutional Tuition Refund Schedule(s) for summer courses (typically available mid-April), please contact the Office of Student Accounts directly at studentaccounts@butler.edu or 317-940-9353.
