UR Summer School

The preliminary Summer School 2020 schedule will be released in late fall 2019 and updated until the final schedule is released no later than two weeks prior to the start of Summer School registration. Registration for continuing students will open on March 17, and applications for non-UR students will be available on that date as well.

About Summer School

Summer School Logistics
Application

Continuing University of Richmond students do not need to complete a Summer School application. They may register online when BannerWeb registration opens.

Non-UR students must complete a brief PDF application and submit with payment. Applications are available once registration opens.

Bookstore

The UR Bookstore, centrally located in the Tyler Haynes Commons and online, stocks all required texts and supplies requested by the instructors for Summer School classes. Non-required books, supplies, insignia gifts and clothing, and sundry items also are available for personal shopping.

Calendar

The Registrar’s Office maintains the official academic calendar for Summer School, including term start and end dates, exam dates, and class holidays. Summer School terms include 5-Week I & II, 6-Week I & II, 8-Week, 12-Week, Summer I/II and Summer Study Abroad.

Classrooms

Classes are held in air-conditioned classrooms, conveniently located to the parking areas, and scheduled with the student in mind.

Identification (Student ID)

Continuing UR students may use their current One Card for Summer School.

Non-UR students admitted to Summer School should visit One Card services with a photo ID to obtain a student ID.

Libraries

The University of Richmond libraries consist of the Central Library, Business Information Center, and Media Resource Center in the Boatwright Memorial Library; and the Music Library, located in the George M. Modlin Center for the Arts. The University of Richmond School of Law Library is administered through the Law School.

University Libraries are available to Summer School students. Use your One Card (UR student ID) when checking out books. Use your netID (UR network ID) to log onto computers.

Office

The Summer School office is located in SPCS on the second floor of the Special Programs Building. The office is open 8:30 a.m.–5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Parking

Parking permits are required and may be obtained free of charge from the University Parking Services located on the ground floor of the Special Programs Building. The current year parking permit is in effect throughout the summer. Students are restricted to student lots. Parking lots are lighted and patrolled by University Police.

Recreation and Wellness

The University of Richmond has a comprehensive Recreation and Wellness program. Non-UR Summer School students are charged a discounted membership fee for access to the Weinstein Center for Recreation and Wellness. Review membership eligibilty and rates for more information.

Academics

The following apply specifically to Summer School and may not have analogous policies in Schools’ academic catalogs.

Changing Course Levels

Designated courses are available for students to take at either the undergraduate or graduate level. Requirements for students who wish to take a course at the graduate level are outlined below. Accreditation standards require that students at the graduate level complete more work, often additional papers or projects, and achieve at a higher level. The requirements for each level are clearly defined on the course syllabus.

Students can change the level of a course they are registered for through the Add/Late Registration date as specified on the Summer Calendar. For special short classes, no level changes can be made after the second day of the course. Students who change the course level will be refunded or charged the tuition difference.

Graduate-Level Courses

All 500-level courses are open only to graduate students. Undergraduate courses offered for graduate credit are designated in the schedule. Graduate students taking these courses are expected to complete more work and achieve at a higher level than undergraduate students.

Faculty

Approximately 95 percent of our summer faculty hold doctorates, and most teach in the regular session of the University. Outstanding visiting lecturers also participate in the Summer School.

Independent Studies and Internships

Summer I/II terms are for independent studies and internships that do not have regularly scheduled meetings. Students must complete an Individual Instruction Request Form and return to the University Registrar’s Office (SPCS students may return their forms to the Summer School Office). No independent study/internships will be accepted after July 8.
