Summer Academic Regulations

Course Cancellation Policy

The University reserves the right to cancel classes, subdivide or combine classes due to enrollment. When courses are cancelled for any reason, students may transfer to another course or get a full refund. Long Island University reserves the right to cancel any class for which there is insufficient enrollment and to withdraw or modify course offerings.

Auditing of Courses

Selected classes may be audited on a non-credit basis with permission from the academic counselor or graduate advisor. Under no circumstances may credit be earned through auditing, nor will a letter grade be given at the conclusion of the course. The audit fee is one-half regular tuition plus full fees for courses other than per capita classes, individualized courses of instruction, special institutes, and workshops.

Program Changes

Any change in original registration must be made on an Enrollment Change Form, (link to PDF when available. In process of being created now) available at the Registrar’s Office. Program changes include:

  1. Dropping from one or more courses or from all courses
  2. Adding one or more courses
  3. Changing sections within a given course
  4. Changing Pass/Fail to grade status
  5. Changing from a credit an audit status (or vice versa)

An advisor’s signature is required of all undergraduate and graduate students for program changes.


Grades are recorded as follows: A, A-; B+, B, B-; C+, C, C-; D; F; P = Pass.

  • INC (Incomplete) – This indicates that some portion of a student’s work has not been completed.
  • W – Authorized withdrawal without penalty.
  • WF – Authorized withdrawal with record of failure.
  • UW – Unofficial withdrawal.

Grades are available through My LIU, the LIU Post student portal available online at
Grades cannot be released over the telephone.

Pass/Fail Option

To enroll in a course on a Pass/Fail basis, visiting students should select the Pass/Fail option on the attached registration form. Current undergraduate LIU Post students in good academic standing may take up to six credits on a Pass/Fail basis per academic year (which includes Summer Sessions and Weekend College), not to exceed a total of 24 credits in a student’s resident undergraduate program . Students must opt for Pass/Fail according to the deadlines in the academic calendar.

No changes are considered after that date. For additional procedures governing the Pass/Fail option, please review the undergraduate or graduate bulletin online at

Please note: The Pass/Fail option is available on the undergraduate level only.


A matriculated student is one who has been accepted into a degree-granting or certificate program.

Student Load

Current LIU Post students may not register for more than six credits during any Summer Session without securing permission from the dean of the appropriate school. Students are considered to be full-time during any Summer Session in which they are enrolled in six credit hours of coursework. A student enrolled in a minimum of six credits during the summer may be eligible for New York State’s Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) and federal loan programs. Contact the Office of Financial Assistance at 516-299-2338 for summer loan packaging.
