Spring-Summer Registration

Preparing for Spring/Summer Registration

If you are taking classes ONLY at GVSU during Spring/Summer:

  1. Take no more than 2 classes during each 6-week session. These are accelerated courses that will require a significant amount of in-class and preparation time. Be sure to dedicate enough time to your academic success.
  2. You must enroll in at least 6 credits to be eligible for federal student loans. Complete the spring/summer financial aid application in order to have your spring/summer aid eligibility reviewed. You can find the application here: www.gvsu.edu/financialaid/summer. Always contact the Financial Aid Office (616-331-3234 or finaid@gvsu.edu) before withdrawing from spring/summer classes in order to determine the effect on your aid.
  3. Some sessions vary in dates from 6 to 12 weeks, and in between. Don’t assume each class is a 6 weeks! Look carefully at the dates listed in Banner.
  4. Tutoring is available during the summer, if needed.
     

If you plan to concurrently enroll at GVSU and another college during Spring/Summer:

  1. Take no more than 2 classes during each 6-week session. These are accelerated courses that will require a significant amount of in-class and preparation time. Be sure to dedicate enough time to your academic success.
  2. Remember that credits transfer, not the grade earned! Check for class equivalencies on GVSU’s equivalency guide found at: www.gvsu.edu/studentapps/mtn/ (Note: You must earn a 2.0 cumulative GPA for transfer credits)
  3. Remember to have a transcript sent back to GVSU after completing your class(es) at the other college.
  4. You can only receive financial aid at one institution at a time.  In order to receive aid at GVSU while concurrently enrolled, you must fill out and submit to the Financial Aid Office a concurrent enrollment form for the school you plan to attend.  You can find GVSU’s concurrent enrollment policy and the form for your school here:  http://www.gvsu.edu/financialaid/concurrent-enrollment-182.htm.
