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, enroll for your courses using the instructions provided to you by the Registrar's Office or your academic advisor. Professional Studies website registration is primarily for visiting students from other institutions and adult professionals enrolling in courses for their professional development. If you do wish to enroll in a non-credit course (meaning a course that does not apply towards your Emerson degree program and is not eligible for payment by Financial Aid), you may do so through this website. Non-credit courses are priced as marked and may be paid through this website via credit card.
What is Professional Studies?
Professional Studies is an Emerson department which oversees Summer School, Winter Session, and May Intersession courses. We also offer certificate programs for non-credit or graduate credit, and academic enrichment programs for high school students.
How do I enroll in Summer School?
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. You may use the Professional Studies website for information gathering to browse courses and see what will be available during the summer so you are prepared when you speak with your advisor. Generally, summer courses are posted in the January/February timeframe so you can view course listings 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.
