Visiting College Students

To ensure that credits earned over the summer at Fordham may be transferred, students matriculated at other colleges are encouraged to obtain written approval from their home school before registering. Once course work is completed and a grade is assigned, the student should request that an official transcript be sent to his/her home university. Please see the sub-section "Transcripts" at the Policies and Procedures for instructions.

Sophomores/rising juniors should also provide a letter of recommendation from a teacher or guidance counselor. Please refer to our Pre-College Program description for more details. Please note that approval to take a summer class does not imply admission to any school within the University.
