Is Summer Session included in my comprehensive tuition?

Summer session courses are not included in College of Undergraduate Studies comprehensive tuition.

I have never taken an online course before. What can I expect?

Hundreds of students enroll in IU’s online courses each year. Immaculata University offers a free online success seminar that will help you navigate the online learning environment. Rather than listen to the professor and join a discussion in a classroom, you will interact with everyone through your computer. You may be asked to comment on other students’ responses. With the exception of quizzes, exams, and assignment deadlines, you may complete the coursework on your own schedule.

How do I access my online course?

You may access your course through Immaculata’s learning management system, Moodle. Visiting students will receive login information and directions by email and mail. It is important that you log in prior to your course starting; this will give you time to explore and ask any questions you may have.

When will a decision be made to cancel low enrolled courses and how will I be notified?

Low enrolled courses will typically be cancelled a week before Summer Session begins. Students will be notified via their personal and Immaculata University email address if their course has been cancelled and a full refund will be issued.

How do I drop/withdraw from a course?

Requests to drop or withdraw from a Summer Session course must be sent in writing to caps@immaculata.eduFailure to log into a course does not constitute an official withdrawal. Students must request drops PRIOR to the start date of the class to receive a full refund. All requests to drop/withdrawal received after the start of the class will be processed as in accordance with the tuition refund policy.
