Non-Degree Seeking Students
(Visiting, Special Non-Degree, High School Students)
Anyone may search for and find summer sessions course information through WSSU's Banner RAMS Online website. The schedule of summer courses is typically established before the first day of Early Registration (in late March). On occasion there may be courses added or deleted after the end of March, as WSSU reserves the right to change the composition of summer course offerings at any time. In particular, some courses will be canceled one business day before classes begin due to low enrollment, and this list will be posted online at summer sessions landing page on that day.
You can check back to see the list of canceled courses under the heading "Cancelled Courses Due to Low Enrollment" on the sidebar and clicking the appropriate link for Summer Session I or Summer Session II.

Cancelled Courses Due to Low Enrollment
Please note that the University must cancel some of its summer courses one business day prior to the start of each Summer Session due to low enrollment. The University attempts to run as many courses as possible; waiting as late as possible, i.e. the day before classes begin, gives the maximum amount of time for classes to adequately fill before making that decision. Unfortunately, cancelling the day before the start of classes occasionally causes disruption in some students' academic plans. We encourage all summer students to prepare an alternate "Plan B" when enrolling in courses, so that upon receiving the email on cancelled courses, students will be prepared to select possible replacement course(s) out of the classes that are not cancelled. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience that this policy may cause, and we thank you for your understanding.
