Undergrad and Grad

Dear Visiting Student:

Welcome and thank you for your interest in Case Western Reserve University. We hope that you find the following information helpful as you prepare to study with us this summer. If you already have an undergraduate degree and wish to take enrichment classes as a non-degree student, click here for registration and information.

A visiting summer student is defined as one who is attending another college or university and who wishes to transfer to that institution any credits which may be earned at Case Western Reserve University. Out-of-town students may register online or wait to register in person when they return to Cleveland. Most classes either have no enrollment caps or ones sufficiently high to accommodate summer enrollees. Exceptions would be biology, chemistry and physics laboratory classes where space can be limited. Adults who have completed high school and who are not enrolled in a degree program may also enroll for summer classes as a Visiting Summer Student.

In order to register for classes at Case, you will need to complete the form, Visiting Student Summer application. This is a fill-in pdf form and may be either emailed to or mailed to:

Office of Undergraduate Studies
Sears Building, Room 357
Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH 44106-7028.

Once your application has been approved, you will receive an email confirmation or letter of acceptance from the Office of Undergraduate Studies. This email or letter will have instructions that will enable you to register using SIS, the Student Information System. If you prefer to register in person, you may do so by meeting with a dean at the Office of Undergraduate Studies in order to obtain a signed registration form. Please call the office at (216) 368-2928 for an appointment. You will then register at the Office of the Registrar, 135 Yost Hall. Visiting students may begin to register on April 10, 2018.

Please visit the Visiting Student Welcome Page for information on how to register and answers to Frequently Asked Questions. You can also read about the registration procedure on the Registrar’s Registration web page.

If you have registered for the May Term or any of the summer sessions and decide you want to cancel your enrollment, you must contact Dean Claudia Anderson in the Office of Undergraduate Studies, Sears Bldg., Rm. 357.  A refund of 100% will apply only to students who cancel enrollment on the first day of the classes.  Refund amounts will be reduced beyond that date.

The list of courses and course descriptions on the summer site is a preliminary one, designed to give students a preview of what will be offered in the summer. The Registrar’s Office will post the official roster, the Searchable Schedule of Classes, on February 1, 2018.

I will be happy to help you find the answers you need. Please don’t hesitate to call or write. We look forward to seeing you soon!
