Policy and Procedures

Sarah Lawrence College will offer one and two credit course options during the summer of 2020. These for-credit course offerings will be counted towards the 120 credits required to complete the Sarah Lawrence College undergraduate degree.

All classes will be held July 6, 2020 through August 7, 2020 and will be assigned grades on a pass/fail basis with narrative evaluation provided by the faculty instructor. Students who miss three classes or do not submit essential assignments consistently will be considered to have voluntarily withdrawn, de facto, from the course; the course will not be listed on the student’s transcript.



This summer session is open to incoming Sarah Lawrence students who have paid their enrollment deposit ($500). Continuing students may also register for these courses as space permits. The maximum number of credits for which a student may register during this five-week term is two credits. Students may enroll in a single two-credit course, a single one-credit course, or two courses each at one credit. These courses are offered at no additional cost for students who are enrolled for the 2020-2021 academic year.
