Summer 2014 Registration Information
This is important information about your summer term registration. Several special conditions may apply to you. Make sure you read this information, understand what is required, and take care of all registration issues before you leave campus for the summer.
You will enroll in PSM 555, PSM Internship, for the summer 2014 term. All students register for the summer internship course.
You may register for either zero or one credit hour, at your discretion; tuition and fees are the same for either option. If you register for PSM 555 for zero hours, satisfactory/unsatisfactory (S/U) grades are assigned. If you register for one hour, letter grades are assigned (A, B, C, etc.). S/U grades do not impact your grade point average (GPA); letters grades are calculated in your GPA.
Your program’s major advisor is the course instructor and will determine deliverables and grading criteria.

|Agricultural Production||1 hour||ACR||37054|
|Food Science and Human Nutrition||1 hour||FCR||37058|

Tuition and fees
Summer tuition and fees are summarized in the following table. Tuition is PSM-specific, while all graduate students are assessed at the same fee rates. The same tuition rate applies if you are registered for zero to five credit hours; however, fees are higher if you enroll in more than two hours. Some fees may be waived if you are away from campus for the summer; see in absentia, below.
|0-2 hours||3-5 hours||6-8 hours||9+ hours|
Some types of financial aid require half-time enrollment of at least three semester hours in the summer term. If you need to enroll half-time, you may enroll in PSM 520, special topics in science and business, for either two or three credit hours. The registration CRN is 35844. For the summer, the special topics course will relate to your internship. There will be assignments and deliverables. The instructor for this course will be determined later. This course is available for S/U grading only.
If you will be at least 50 miles from campus, you qualify for in absentia registration. If you register in absentia, the only fee you are charged is the general fee ($175). However, you will not have access to some campus services and facilities and you will you will not have health insurance. Tuition is not affected.
