Emerson Degree-Seeking Students
Can I register for my classes through this website?
If you are currently working towards a Bachelor's or Master's degree at Emerson and wish to enroll in credit-bearing courses that count toward your degree, enroll for your courses using the instructions provided to you by the Registrar's Office, your academic advisor, or graduate program director. Professional Studies website registration is primarily for visiting students from other institutions, and adult professionals enrolling in courses for professional development. Course enrollments through the Professional Studies website require payment at the time of registration and are not eligible for payment by Financial Aid.
What is Professional Studies?
Professional Studies is an Emerson department which oversees Summer School, January Intersession, and May Intersession courses. We also offer non-credit certificate programs, graduate credit certificates applicable toward a master's degree, and pre-college academic enrichment programs for high school students.
How do I enroll in Summer School?
Once you have officially started as an Emerson degree-seeking student, you may register for summer courses just as you would for your fall and spring classes through eCommon. Full registration instructions are available on the Registrar's website. Summer courses are posted in the February timeframe so you can view course listings and speak with your advisor before registration opens in eCommon in March. During the summer semester, undergraduate courses are significantly discounted from the regular academic year rates, so it's a great time to catch up, get ahead, or make progress towards your learning goals.
