M1 Summer Elective Information
(Class of 2019 only)
It is your responsibility to make sure that you have been approved for your summer elective experience by March 1st so that enrollment and financial aid (if applicable) are completed in a timely manner. Enrollment will occur when the program you have applied to and been approved for notifies the Office of Student Affairs.
To be enrolled in a summer program, you must be in good academic standing (2.0 OGPA for Research or Clinical Education electives); 2.5 OGPA for Community Health Project or Medical Education electives; or, as established by the individual program/elective director. A petition for a waiver of this requirement can be submitted to the Associate Dean for Student Affairs. Students who must repeat a course during the summer will not be allowed to enroll in a summer elective unless they have successfully completed the course and received permission to enroll in an elective from the Associate Dean for Student Affairs.
Elective credit will be accrued at the rate of two credits for four weeks or four credits for eight weeks. The maximum number of elective credits hours you can obtain over the summer between your first and second year of medical school is four.
Financial Aid is available for students who are enrolled for the summer 2016 session. (Look for information in 2016)
