All summer credit courses meet the same academic and hours requirements as those offered during the fall and spring semesters. Although they may meet over a few weeks, Summer Sessions class meeting times are adjusted to meet the same number of hours comparable to a 15-week semester. Outside class assignments also are comparable to a regular semester. Students are responsible for taking a reasonable course load throughout Summer Sessions and should consider the potential negative academic and financial consequences of overloading on coursework. University policy on maximum course load is approximately one credit per week (e.g., three semester hours over a three-week period, six semester hours over a six-week period, etc.). A maximum of 15 semester hours of coursework may be taken over the entire summer as long as they are spread over 15 weeks.
All winter online and hybrid credit courses meet the same academic requirements as those offered during the fall and spring semesters. Outside class assignments also are comparable to a regular semester. A maximum of four semester credit hours of coursework may be taken during winter session.
All Montclair State University students are provided with, and are expected to utilize, a Montclair State University email account. The Montclair State University email system is an official communications channel to the university community. Students may visit any public computing lab, or read the Office of Information Technology’s Gmail documentation for further information on using a Montclair State University email account.
The Office of the Registrar, upon receipt of the completed Certification of Enrollment Request form from the student, will provide enrollment verification for social security, jury duty, financial aid, health insurance, scholarships, educational loans, etc.
The Certification of Enrollment will reflect either enrollment history or an individual semester. It will also indicate any Montclair State University degrees earned, full- or part-time status, academic program and anticipated date of graduation. There is no charge for a Certification of Enrollment.
Students registered at Montclair State University are required to carry a valid Montclair State University ID Card while on campus. The Montclair State University ID Card is necessary for such things as borrowing library materials, admittance into residence halls, dining facilities, computer labs, pool, gym, participating in student activities, and residence meal plans. For additional information, call 973-655-4147.
All students enrolled in Winter or Summer Sessions courses should establish an MSU NetID (electronic identity that provides access to a number of online services at the University). This provides the primary means for you to receive important University communications during your enrollment here. You need to establish an MSU NetID to purchase a parking permit for use of appropriate surface parking lots. It is required for use of the Blackboard online learning system and to access online library databases and periodicals from campus or home.
