Summer Registration - optional for all students except RAs

  • Students on an RA contract must register for a minimum of 3 research credits (707) during the summer II term. Since 3 credits cost exactly the same as 4 credits in the summer, you may register for 3 credits of research + 1 credit of your choosing and pay the same amount.
