Summer Sessions 2017 Registration Begins March 20

May 30 - June 27 - First Session
June 29 - July 28 - Second Session               


Summer Session 2017 at North Carolina Central University offers NCCU and visiting students, the opportunity to advance toward an early graduation or to take classes for personal enrichment. Students can choose from two convenient four-or five week sessions or either a dual session (specified classes only). During the summer, you have the advantage of:

  • accelerate progress towards your degree for an early exit; thereby helping to reduce that student loan
  • get ahead by taking those prerequisites
  • enrolling in courses that are difficult during the fall and spring
  • smaller scale classes which gives an easier access to faculty
  • a relaxed environment for learning
  • classes that are offered Monday-Thursday giving you early access to the weekend

Admissions (NCCU Students Only)

  • Continuing NCCU students who were enrolled in the Spring semester do not need to
  • Readmit NCCU students – only if you have been readmitted through the Registrar’s Office; cleared through Student Health Services, and have met with your academic advisor
  • New NCCU students who have been officially admitted to the University

Summer Only Students (Visiting)

Students attending Summer Sessions who do not plan to complete a degree at NCCU are classified as Summer Only or Visiting Students. Students must complete the following:

  • Summer Only Application Form - Part I (Visiting Students Only)
  • Application of North Carolina Residence for Tuition Purposes – Part II
  • Course Request Form – Part III
  • Application Fee of $40.00.
  • Visiting Student Approval Form (only if required by your attending university).

Class registration and instructions will be emailed once the Summer-Only application has been submitted and processed. Processing of applications takes approximately 24-48 hours. Financial aid is available only through your attending university. 

Summer Session Regulations

General Admission: Acceptance of admissions to North Carolina Central University indicates the student's willingness to subscribe to the rules and regulations of the University. The University reserves the right to withdraw any student who does not maintain the required standard of scholarship, or who's remaining in the University would endanger his/her own health, the health of others, or whose conduct at any time is not satisfactory to the University.

Student Academic Load: The maximum number of academic credits that a student may enroll in one session is six credit hours. Students desiring to take an overload may obtain written approval from their academic advisor or Dean and must be submitted to the Office of Summer Sessions Director. Students enrolled in the dual session may take more than six hours only with the approval of their advisor. An overload form is available in the Office of Summer Sessions or the Registrar's office.

Cancelation of Courses: Classes with fewer than (15 undergraduate or 12 graduate - Note: Numbers may vary in special cases) students officially enrolled at the end of the regular registration period are subject to cancelation by the Office of Summer Sessions. Students will be notified prior to the beginning of the summer session or on the first day of classes in the academic departments, Registrar’s office or by email.  Students whose classes have been canceled may register without penalty for other classes until 4:00PM on the day of schedule adjustments.

Class Attendance: A study may incur not more than three (3) unauthorized absences in a three or four credit hour course and no more than two (2) in a two credit hour course. The calculation of absences will begin on the first day of classes (exception is used if student registers after the first day). Grades for non-attendance are “NW” or “NF”.

Withdrawal From the University: Students who wish to withdraw from the University for personal, medical, or academic reasons at any time during the summer sessions must complete the Official Withdrawal Forms located in the Registrar’s Office.  Students who leave the University without completing the required forms will forfeit their eligibility for refunds of tuition and fees.
