Summer 2021 Registration
The summer schedule is live:
Registration will open Monday, March 29 and registration priority slots will open through April 2. Your personal registration day and time based on credits earned is posted on the Demographics page of your Student Account at https://agresso.mitchellhamline.edu/information/registrarlogin.aspx .
Courses this summer will be offered in the following formats:
- These are asynchronous, fully online courses that count as distance education courses. There are no set meeting times but there are regular assignments and optional office hours.
- These are synchronous courses that are fully remote (through Zoom) with regular class meeting times. Students must be able to participate in all class meetings. These courses do not count as distance education courses.
- These are courses that will likely have some mix of on-campus and remote participation with regular class meeting times. You can choose whether to participate in these classes entirely remotely or to participate on-campus to the extent possible. There will be two cross-listed sections, fully remote and on-campus. Register for the remote section to participate remotely, and in the in-person section to attend on-campus. Note that depending on the size of the class and whatever distancing restrictions are in place at the time of the course, you may have to participate remotely for some or all classes even if you enroll in the on-campus option.
- On-Campus. These are courses that we intend to offer entirely in person, if possible. There is no remote option so enrollment numbers will be capped at a low number until we are able to add more students based on distancing restrictions. If you can’t participate in person, you cannot register for the On-Campus courses.
You’ll be able to add and drop online through May 15. After May 15, students may still drop until the start of the course by completing a Request to Add/Withdraw form and submitting it to the Office of the Registrar. Students who drop after May 15 and before the start of the course will incur a $150 per credit penalty for each course dropped. Students may add until the start of the course using an Add/Withdraw form, space permitting, and if the student could reasonably complete any first-day assignments by the start of the course. Please note that the Add/Withdraw request will not override holds, time conflicts, or credit maximums. Be sure you are able to take the course before submitting the form. Students may not drop or add after the start of the course. Students who withdraw after the start of the course will owe full tuition. The drop fee applies even you are dropping a course to add a different course that you prefer to take.
There is an 8 credit limit for summer. Students may register for between 9 and 10 credits (between 9 and 12 credits for a full-time residency) in the summer semester with advance permission from the Vice Dean, Academic and Faculty Affairs. No student may register for more than 10 credits in the summer unless the student is doing a full-time summer residency. A student doing a full-time summer residency may register for up to 12 credits for the residency with the advance permission of both the Externship Director and the Vice Dean, though the final decision rests with the Vice Dean. You can find the summer overload request form online. Do not register for more than 8 credits without first receiving permission—if you do so, you will be dropped from all summer courses. Approval to register for an overload does not guarantee seats in your selected courses, you must still register for them online when your registration time opens.
Check for holds before you register. You’ll want to work with the office that placed the hold to resolve it before your registration time opens. The Office of the Registrar can’t override the holds placed by other offices—be sure to contact the correct office. For billing holds, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. For Title IX training holds, contact email@example.com.
If you encounter registration problems during your registration period, email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Wait list information
If you are placed on a wait list for a course, you will receive an email when a seat becomes available. To accept the seat, you will need to do the following:
- Drop any courses, if necessary, which create a time conflict with the course you are being offered a seat in,
- If you registered for an alternate section of the course you’d like to add, you must drop the alternate section first,
- Ensure you will not be registered for more than the maximum credits allowed per semester (3 credits in the J-term, 8 credits in summer, and 15 credits in the fall or spring semester) by accepting the offered seat,
- Verify you’ve met any applicable pre-requisites,
- Accept the seat by reply to the notification email before the date and time specified in the email.
- If you fail to reply before the deadline in the email, your place on the wait list will be forfeited and the available seat will be offered to the next student on the wait list. The course will be removed from your schedule, and will no longer be visible in your My Schedule page.
Students are not automatically added from the wait list. You must affirmatively accept the seat.
The drop fee only applies when you drop yourself from a course you are registered for. Wait list seats are not registrations, therefore, the drop fee does not apply when you drop yourself from a wait list.
Fall 2021 registration will occur after spring finals
