Part-of-Term Tuition Liability Dates

Some courses meet for period which do no correspond to the three standard summer sessions and therefore have modified add, drop, and tuition liability dates proportional to their length. Part-of-Term codes are assigned to courses with non-standard start and end dates. The part-of term code for non-standard courses will be listed in the section notes on Patriot Web.  If you register for a course that meets less than the full semester, refer to the chart below for add/drop deadlines. Courses may be assigned to a Part-of-Term code that does not necessarily match the exact start and end date for the section, so students should consult Patriot Web for the exact start and end dates for non-standard sections.
