Summer School

Taking Summer Classes at TCU

You can find summer course options listed on TCU Class Search, (be sure you use the drop down menu to change the search term to summer).  Summer enrollment dates are assigned & published by the Registrar’s office.  You will be able to find your SUMMER ENROLLMENT DATE on your My.TCU account beginning the end of March.

Taking Summer Classes Away from TCU

Points to consider:

  1. If you have 54 or more credit hours, classes away from TCU must be taken at a four-year university.
  2. If you have fewer than 54 credit hours you may attend a community college or a four-year university.
  3. Once a student is enrolled at TCU, no more than 12 total hours may be transferred from other schools.
  4. You may take TCU Core courses over the summer with the exception of Cultural Awareness, Global Awareness and Citizenship and Social Values which may not be transferred to TCU.
  5. Grades for courses that are part of your business lower division requirements (ECON, ENGL, and MATH) will be count toward your LDR GPA and be evaluated as part of admission to Neeley.
  6. Online classes are permitted and will be subject to the same approval process as in person.

So how do you get a class approved?

  1. Decide what class you hope to take over the summer and where it would be convenient for you to take it. 
  2. Before enrolling, submit the class for approval by following the steps below. 

HOW TO SUBMIT A TRANSFER CREDIT REQUEST:

  1. Go to my.tcu.edu > Student Center > Path to Graduation > other academic
  2. From the drop down list, select Transfer Credit Request and click on double arrows.
  3. Carefully read and follow all instructions
  4. You will receive email notification of approval or denial once processing is complete
  5. You may also view the NAAC How To Video – How to Submit a Transfer Credit Request here for more detailed instructions.

This process protects you from accidentally taking a class that will not transfer to TCU. Please allow 2-3 weeks for your courses to be evaluated and returned back to you. If your request is denied you are welcome to submit another request to evaluate a new class option.
