Registration for Fordham Students

Current Fordham students should register for summer courses and housing through the student access portal. You will be eligible to register for summer courses when you are eligible to register for fall.

Fordham University seniors with a GPA of 3.0 or better may, with the approval of their dean and departmental adviser, register for courses offered in their major department that begin with the digit 5. Please send permissions along with your FIDN and course preference to summerschool@fordham.edu.

Online Courses

Fordham students who are not able to take a traditional Summer Session class because they live at a distance or have work or familial obligations that prevent them from doing so are eligible to register for online courses via my.fordham.edu when they become eligible for fall registration.  According to college policy, Fordham College Rose Hill and Lincoln Center students may take one online course per summer as part of their 8-credit limit; Gabelli students may take two online courses per summer as part of their 12-credit limit.  Please note: Students who register for more than the permitted number of classes will be dropped from all online classes. Space in these courses is limited. Overrides of the course caps or reserve rules are not possible.

Students should be aware that, while convenient, online courses are highly-demanding and require more self-discipline than attending in-person lecture courses.  Although classes are asynchronous, meaning that you can work on them when you choose, there are due dates for assignments, and it is easy to fall behind.  We encourage you to speak with your class dean or the Summer Session dean to determine whether an online course will be a good fit for you.  Syllabi are posted with the course descriptions where possible.

After add/drop, withdrawals must be requested in writing to summerschool@fordham.edu.  The refund policy is available at www.fordham.edu/refunds.

Internships

Fordham students in good standing are eligible to receive credit while interning over the summer.

In order to receive credit for a summer internship, you can either register for an internship course or you will need to sign up for a tutorial. Learn more about the program associated with the internship course.

For the tutorial, you can earn between 1 and 4 credits while working with an instructor of your choice (if you are a Communications major, you should speak to the associate chair at your campus). The number of credits you earn depends on financial considerations ($882.00 per credit), your graduation requirements, and the amount of work you are willing to do outside the internship. You receive credit for the academic component associated with the course, not for your time or activities at the internship. Many students opt for 1 credit, and the academic component usually involves a weekly journal.

If you wish to sign up for a tutorial but are having trouble identifying an instructor, please contact us at summerschool@fordham.edu. Make sure to include your name, FIDN, your major, and the city and organization at which you intend to intern. Once you have identified the instructor and asked if he or she would be willing to work with you, complete this form.
