    If you plan to take summer online classes while overseas…

    Please be advised of the following:
    • There are different summer sessions. You are responsible for knowing when your summer class begins and ends.
    • You need to buy required textbooks before you leave the United States and bring them with you. An online class does not necessarily mean e-textbooks.
    • Although unlikely, technical difficulties with the online learning management system may occur while you are overseas.
    Any of the above situations may not be sufficient grounds for you to request a drop-without-record and refund of tuition.
