Prereg Notes, Spring 2016 for fall preregistration

Dean's notice on preregristration

Summer school web site

Voluntary summer school registration should open in MIDS on 29 March, if all the summer assignments have been posted.  You can only sign up for a block when you have leave. You can only sign up for one summer school, and you cannot have any other commitments during that block.

Course failure will almost certainly require you to take summer school in a "voluntary" status in place of leave.  If you disagree with this definition of "voluntary", think of it as your choosing not to devote enough effort to passing the course.  If you do not want to give up leave, consider this early in the semester and do not fail a course.  While there are exceptions that allow summer school in place of military training, they are truly rare and most of those mids are probably taking a second summer school during leave.
