Summer Term

Division of Graduate Medical Sciences Policy

Certain courses taken during the summer term or session at Boston University may be credited toward the MA/MS and PhD degrees if prior approval is obtained from the candidate’s major department or program. The number of credits that can be earned in one session is limited to 6 credits. Graduate students who do not wish to enroll for courses but wish to complete a departmental requirement such as comprehensive, qualifying, or dissertation examination, or to use the University facilities must register for one summer term by paying the Continuing Student fee.
