This list shows all ISP courses on the summer schedule.
Some of these online courses don’t have dates and times listed. Does that mean they haven’t been determined yet?
When an online course doesn’t have dates and times listed, that means it will be offered asynchronously. You won’t have formal class meeting times, so you can fit your coursework around a job or other summer plans.
There are so many courses, how do I pick the ones that are best for me?
We recommend that you discuss your selections with a faculty advisor.

Summer Session begins May 15, though some courses start later. Most classes are six to 10 weeks long.
As a KSC student, can I register online?
Yes. Online registration for matriculated students will be open beginning February 20.
I am a KSC student who registered online. When do I pay?

What if I need a course that isn’t being offered?
You should go to the department you would like to take a course with and discuss if there is a possibility of the course being offered, or if there is a way to set up an independent study.
How can I get credit for an internship?
You should direct your internship questions to Academic and Career Advising (ACA). The ACA office, located in Elliot Center, is open Monday - Friday, 8:00a.m. - 4:30p.m. They can also be reached by calling 603-358-2500. Please arrange your internship and pay for your credits prior to starting work.
Is there a payment plan available?
You may set up a payment plan to pay your Summer Session charges over three months. The enrollment fee is due when you set up your plan.
Am I eligible for financial aid during the summer?
KSC matriculated students enrolled in Summer Session may be eligible to receive a combination of federal and private loans and/or federal and institutional grant programs such as the Federal Pell Grant and the Keene Tuition Scholarship. Eligibility is determined on a case-by-case basis by the Office of Financial Aid located in Elliot Center, so we suggest you make an appointment with a financial aid counselor to discuss your options. Additional information regarding summer aid programs is available on the Financial Aid website.
Could you please explain the add/drop/withdrawal period, and how the refund policy works?
The schedule adjustment/withdrawal dates and the refund period are much shorter: schedule adjustment (add/drop) can only be done in the first three calendar days from the start of the course. Therefore, a class that begins on Monday, May 15, can only be dropped from Monday, May 15 to Wednesday, May 17. Course withdrawal ends at the mid-point of the course. For example, the withdrawal period is at the end of the third week for a six-week course, and on Wednesday of the fourth week for a seven-week session.
The refund policy is below.
100% Before first class
75% Within days 1-3
50% Within days 4-14
No refund after day 14
Who do I contact with questions?
You should begin by directing your questions to your advisor then to the Graduate Studies and Extended Education Office in Elliot Center, Room 144, firstname.lastname@example.org; 603-358-2290. Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
