Registration is a simple process. Select the "register now" button on the main page. You can pay immediately with a credit card or pay later via one of the other methods listed. However, your spot in a course is not reserved until you are paid. Sections do fill up, so you are advised to pay early. You MUST pay for your course(s) no later than 1 week before class starts or you will not be registered.

How can I pay for Summer Learn courses?

Summer Learn accepts online payments through the secure registration link on the main page. All major credit cards and debit cards accepted (a 3% processing fee applies). You may also pay via mail or in person at Student Accounts, but you will not be registered for class until payment is received. The last possible date to pay is one week prior to the start of class.

Contact for more information.

Can I drop a Summer Learn course after I have registered?

Yes. You may drop a course before it starts or according to the following deadlines:

  • Within the first seven days of the start date for a 6-week course
  • Within the first seven days of the start date for an 8-week course


Drops within this timeframe will receive a full refund (minus any credit card processing fees) and there will be no academic record for the course. While you may withdraw from a course after these deadlines, no refund will be available and you will receive a permanent grade of 'W.'

If I drop a course and receive a W (withdraw) grade, will it hurt my GPA?

The W grade does not affect the GPA (neutral), but it will be on the academic record permanently. Some medical or graduate schools may count a W grade against the student in their admissions process.

Are there any fees associated with Summer Learn?

Yes. Some courses require the purchase of a take home lab or other instructor resources. In addition, there is a nonrefundable 3% processing fee for all credit card transactions.

I am a current MVNU student. Can I use EDTAG to cover Summer Learn courses?

Yes. Summer Learn courses will be covered under the EDTAG program. Please contact to apply EDTAG funds to Summer Learn (do not register through the website).

Where can I find a list of my Summer Learn course textbooks?

You need to visit the MVNU online bookstore for your required textbooks. Follow the prompts even if you are a guest student for the Summer.

Do I need Internet access every day to complete my online course?

Summer Learn courses are designed with flexibility in mind. However, the majority of SL courses require that you contribute or provide active engagement online two to three times a week during the scheduled SL term.

Can I get special permission to start a course late due to travels?

Due to the accelerated nature of Summer Learn courses, all course work needs to be completed in the designated SL term.

When is the deadline to register for a course?

Registration closes at 12:01 a.m. on the Monday one week prior to the start of class. Please note that you can sign up now and opt to pay later (by mail or in person at Student Accounts), but that your spot in the class is not guaranteed until you are paid in full, and spots may be forfeited if you have not paid by the registration deadline.

What can I do if a course section is full?

Contact to be placed on the waitlist for any closed section. If a spot becomes available, we will contact you according to the order in which you’re placed on the list. In such cases, please be prepared to pay quickly in order to be registered for the course before the deadline.
