Summer and Intersession Courses
Progression for Degree Completion
Ordinarily a full-time student can earn a degree in four years by registering only during the fall and spring semesters, however, the student must average 16 credits per semester. In acknowledgment of learning achieved outside of the formal classroom situation, or to suit student needs, the college grants a time-shortened degree through any combination of the following:
Courses are offered during the first two weeks in January. No more than three credits may be taken by a student at this time. Courses listed as part of the intersession program may not be transferred to, or considered part of, a prior or following semester's credit load. Intersession courses are billed at the per credit rate and under no circumstances can they be considered as part of the tuition charges and fees of another semester. Permission to exceed three credits must be obtained from the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
Molloy College offers courses during several summer sessions on campus. A student may take a maximum of three credits during the two-week session called Summer Session Short. During each of the two four-week sessions, Summer Session I and Summer Session II, a student may take up to two courses or eight credits. Students are limited to a maximum of two courses or six to eight credits in any session, as long as the sessions do not overlap.
Permission to exceed these limits must be obtained from the Vice President for Academic Affairs. The maximum credit load for Summer Session L (Long) will vary and will be based on the particular requirements and limitations of the individual courses offered. Problems or questions regarding Summer Sessions will be resolved or answered by the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
Courses are open to students from other colleges and new freshmen admits who are June high school graduates and who wish to begin college courses before matriculating in the fall semester at Molloy or another college or university.
Molloy College courses and credits are ordinarily accepted as transfer credits by other accredited colleges and universities. They are the equivalent in content and credit to the courses offered during the regular academic semesters. Summer Session courses are billed at the per-credit rate, and under no circumstances can they be considered as part of the tuition charges and fees of another semester.
