You may take summer courses at Ferris. Summer registration begins in January. If you are interested in taking summer courses at another institution in Michigan, you can do so as a Guest Student. You can get the guest student application by clicking here or go to the Arts and Sciences Dean’s office (ASC 3052). Make sure to work with your academic advisor to ensure you are taking the appropriate equivalent course that will transfer back to Ferris State University.
Usually, a transfer course that is equivalent to an FSU course according to the Course Equivalency Table will also be accepted by the College of Pharmacy as such. When in doubt if a course will transfer appropriately, it is important to ask for clarification.
We do not recommend splitting a science sequence and taking them at two different universities. For example, we do not recommend taking a BIOL 121 equivalent at one university and a BIOL 122 equivalent at a different university.
Withdrawing from Course and Financial Aid
Prior to withdrawing from a course, it is recommended that you talk to the financial aid office. If you are enrolled in fewer than 12 credits sometime during the semester because you withdrew from a course, you do not necessarily lose your financial aid eligibility. However it is important that you review the Satisfactory Academic Progress policies and are aware to remain eligible for financial aid. You may, however, have to maintain a 12 credit load in order to satisfy other requirements such as outside scholarships and health insurance.
