Important Policies Regarding Late-Starting Courses

Some courses hold their first class meetings after the last day for a 100% tuition refund. Please take note of the following policies regarding these late-starting courses:

  • Students are expected to begin pre-lecture work (reading) before the first class meeting of all late-starting courses. Other pre-lecture work such as papers or exams may also be assigned. The syllabus will clearly note such assignments.
  • Students who wish to drop a late-starting course and receive a full tuition refund must drop the course by midnight on the first day of class.
  • Students who withdraw from a late-starting course after the above deadline will receive no refund. These courses will remain on a student’s transcript with a ‘W’ to indicate that the student has withdrawn from the course.
  • Students submitting pass/fail petitions for late-starting courses must do so by the posted deadline in the Academic Calendar or the ninth lecture hour (for late-starting classes).

If you have any questions concerning these policies, please contact the Registration Office at [email protected] or 978-646-4551.

Information Regarding Textbooks

The textbooks for each course and their ISBNs can be found in the course’s syllabus.

Purchase your textbooks through the Gordon-Conwell/Christian-Book-Distributors partnership and a portion of the proceeds will support the seminary.


Please make note:
January Session is NOT considered part of either Fall or Spring semester when determining a student’s enrollment status for loan deferments, etc. (e.g., full-time, half-time, less than half-time)
