Summer session courses reminder

Summer registration is still open. All full-time Lake Forest students who have not completed their BA requirements and still need the credit to graduate are eligible to take one free course this summer.

Associate Dean of the Faculty Scott Schappe sent this announcement to students on April 27:

Dear Students,

This email is a reminder and update about summer session courses, and you can find general information here

  • Summer registration is still open. All full-time Lake Forest students who have not completed their BA requirements and still need the credit to graduate are eligible to take one free course this summer. 
  • Please use my.lakeforest by May 5 for priority registration into your free summer course. Course seats are filling quickly, so please register as soon as possible.
  • We just added 11 new courses to the summer schedule in the last week. There are still seats available in courses that already have waitlists in the fall, including COMM 110, CSCI 107, CSCI 112, BUSN 331, and FIN 210.
  • Summer courses move at a very fast pace: each class day covers about a week’s material. A summer session course is a significant time commitment and you should expect to devote 35-40 hours per week to a one credit summer term course.
  • f you’re taking a second or third course and still behind in credits toward graduation, you may be eligible for the $600 course tuition through our Forester Finish program. See the Forester Finish page for details.

The temporary Pass-Fail policy implemented for Spring 2020 is no longer in effect for summer courses. For summer courses:

  • You must choose to take a course Pass-Fail by submitting a Pass-Fail Form to the Registrar.
  • Summer courses taken Pass-Fail will count toward the maximum of four Pass-Fail courses that can appear on your transcript apart from the Spring 2020 courses.
  • The summer Pass-Fail and automatic W deadlines have been extended to the last class day of each term.
  • Remote courses require varying degrees of technology. Please consult the course instructor if you have concerns. If you have technology problems, please email the ITS Helpdesk (ithelp@lakeforest.edu).

Best,

R. Scott Schappe
Associate Dean of the Faculty
