COURSE SELECTION (BIDDING) FOR SUMMER 2015

Dear students:

This is to inform you that you may now bid for summer 2015 courses on Banner Web.  The deadline for entering your course selections “bids” is Friday, February 27 by 5:00 p.m. for inclusion in the lottery.

Please read the Course Registration Instructions, which are located on Stetson Connect on the Registrar’s Page (http://connect.law.stetson.edu/images/a_documents/registrar/courseregistrationinstructions.pdf), prior to entering your course selections on Banner Web.

To help with your course selections, we have attached Schedule Information and Tips, and an explanation of how the course selection (bidding) process works.  Please take time to read over this important information.

In addition, please check the Graduation Requirements Checklist, by clicking on this link (http://www.stetson.edu/law/offices/registrar/media/checklist.pdf), for which courses meet which requirements.

If you want to just view the summer 2015 schedule without going into Banner Web, it is located on Stetson Connect on the Registrar’s Page (http://connect.law.stetson.edu/images/a_documents/registrar/summercourses.pdf).

Special note about Electronic (Distance) Education Courses

Due to the change in the ABA rule regarding Electronic (Distance) Education Courses, Stetson’s policy (effective with spring 2015) will be as follows for students in the JD Program:

  • Must have successfully completed 28 credit hours to enroll in an Electronic (Distance) Education Course.
  • Even though the ABA says that students can take up to 15 credits of Electronic (Distance) Education Courses per semester, Stetson is only permitting a total of  8 credit hours per semester.  However, if a student wishes to take more, they would need to receive written approval from the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.
  • May take up to a total of 15 credit hours of Electronic (Distance) Education Courses toward your degree.

Furthermore, you should realize that Electronic (Distance) Education courses are as much work or more work than a regular live course.  It is critical to get started with the course immediately during the first week.  NOTE:  Students are allowed to bid for more than 8 credits of electronic education credits.  However, if you end up having more than 8 credits of electronic education credits after bidding, you will need to decide which course(s) to drop, unless you received permission from the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.

 

If you have any questions, please feel free to email registrar@law.stetson.edu or call us at (727) 562-7803.
