Continuing Education Registration Policies
Registration Policies & Procedures
Students must complete the published registration procedures each semester, including payment of all tuition and fees, to gain admission to classes. No student can be registered until all registration procedures have been completed. Class sizes are limited; early registration is advised. Registration priority in all sections is given to matriculated students.
Registering for Continuing Education Classes
Students should refer to “Tuition, Registration & Fees”. Matriculated MA, BFA, and certificate candidates must register through the University registrar for all courses.
Students receive academic advising services from the Continuing Education Office. A continuing education student may request an appointment to meet with an advisor at 617-994-4233.
How to Cancel Registration or Withdraw from a Course
Students wishing to cancel their registration or withdraw from a course must notify the School of Art & Design in writing either by certified mail, fax, email, or in person. To cancel registration, this must be done prior to the start of the class(es) for which they have registered. Cancellation or withdrawal will be dated from the day such notice is postmarked, faxed, emailed, or submitted in person. Students who cancel their registration at any time prior to the start of classes will receive a full refund of tuition paid, less the $25 registration fee and any other applicable fees. Refund Policy
Students enrolling in Continuing Education division courses must be 18 years or older and be high school graduates or possess the equivalent of a high school education (i.e. GED). The School reserves the right to ensure international students have demonstrated proﬁciency in the English language in order to enroll in Continuing Education courses. Exceptions to these rules may be made at the discretion of the Director of Continuing Education and preparatory programs for applicants of unusual motivation or ability. Students intending to apply continuing education division courses toward BFA or certiﬁcate requirements must consult the general catalog and complete an application and change of status procedure.
United States immigration policy no longer permits students on B-1 (business) or B-2 (tourist) visas to enroll in courses at any college or university. If you are in the United States on a B-type visa, you will not be allowed to enroll in courses at the School of Art & Design at Suffolk University.
English Proﬁciency Requirement
All non-native English speakers must demonstrate proﬁciency in the English language. Upon registering for courses, students may be required to have their English language skills evaluated.
Massachusetts state law requires that all students taking nine or more credits in a term have adequate health coverage. Suffolk University will provide any student registered for nine or more credits per term with health insurance for a fee. If you already have health insurance and are registering for nine or more credits as a continuing education student, you will need to formally waive the University’s health insurance to avoid being charged. International students, regardless of their credit load, will be automatically enrolled in Suffolk University’s student health insurance plan. Waivers are granted at the discretion of the Office of Health & Wellness Services. Please visit www.suffolk.edu/health for up-to-date information.
Disability Services functions as the ADA compliance ofﬁce and coordinates services for students with disabilities at Suffolk. In all cases, appropriate diagnostic documentation is required to receive disability services at Suffolk.
