Next Steps for Enrollment

Specifically for non-UR students accepted to UR Summer School.

Welcome to UR Summer School! Once you’ve received official confirmation of your acceptance into Summer School, you should complete the next steps to prepare for class.

On behalf of the Schools of Arts & Sciences, Business, Leadership Studies and Professional & Continuing Studies, the Summer School welcomes you to the University of Richmond!

Have questions? Contact the Summer School office at (804) 289-8133 or

Activate Computing Account

Once you receive your UR ID, you should activate your computing account (netID). Your netID gives you access to your UR student email and to Blackboard, the University’s course management tool. Faculty will communicate by email only using your address, so activating and forward your email is vital.

Confirm Registration

Because you completed the Application/Registration form, you’ve been registered for the course(s) you requested. To confirm, login to BannerWeb using your UR ID (sent to you by mail upon acceptance) and password (initially your date of birth in MMDDYY format).

Connect to the Network

Be sure you can access the UR wired and wireless network using your computer and mobile devices. Register your mobile device(s) along with your computer(s) on the network. Links and instructions are available on the Information Services website.

Purchase Textbooks

Most instructors notify the UR Bookstore of required textbooks, and the Bookstore makes copies available for purchase. The Bookstore delivers, too!

Review Student Resources

Although you may be here only a few weeks, we encourage you to take advantage of all the academic resources available to students of the University of Richmond.

Confirm Class Location

Confirm Class Location. A day or two prior to the first day of class, check BannerWeb for updated class locations. Classes sometimes relocate at the last minute. Be sure to review a campus map if this is your first time to visit campus.

Know Policies and Guidelines

The Summer School schedule along with the undergraduate or Professional & Continuing Studies catalog in force at the time of your registration are considered your catalog(s) of record, and they contain a summary of policies and procedures that govern your studies at the University of Richmond.
