Enrolling in online or on-campus courses this summer is simple with BSU’s online application and registration process.

How to Register for Summer Courses

To apply and enroll in BSU Summer Sessions, follow our regular undergraduate or graduate application procedures.

  • If you are not yet a BSU student, apply for regular admission.
  • If you do not plan to complete a degree at BSU, you should apply as a Special Student. Once we’ve processed your application, you’ll be able to register for classes.
  • If you are already a BSU student, you may register for summer classes.

Apply for Admission to BSU

If you are a new student (who hasn’t previously attended BSU), your personal identification information must be entered into the student records system.

To Apply as an Undergraduate Special Student

If you do not plan to complete your degree at BSU, select the following on your application:

  1. Type of Major: “On campus” or “Off site”
  2. Area of Student: “Undecided”
  3. Intended Degree: “Not seeking degree”

Students will be granted special status admission if they:

  • have graduated from an accredited high school, OR
  • have completed a GED certificate, OR
  • are transferring from another post-secondary institution where they have good academic and financial standing

Transcripts are not required. Students who later decide to pursue a degree program must apply for regular undergraduate admission to the BSU.

Complete the Graduate Special Student Application.

Register for Classes

Register using e-services. Refer to the class schedule for correct course ID numbers and credit values. All students are responsible for reviewing the Summer Session registration policies.
