Whether you need to catch up on course work, want to get ahead and graduate early, or just like the idea of taking a class or two at St. Thomas, you can earn credit here. Registration is easy.
You may register for a combined total of 16 credits during the summer sessions. Credits easily transfer to most institutions.*
What do you need to do?

After we process your enrollment form, you will receive instructions for accessing our online registration system as well as a time-ticket email that lists your first available registration date and time. Summer registration will begin March 1.
You should register or submit schedule revisions using Murphy Online, St. Thomas' online registration system. Beginning with your assigned early registration time until the end of the online registration period (this varies by class), you may register through Murphy Online. After that time you will need to submit a paper Change in Registration form to the Registrar's Office.Please make sure you have claimed your St. Thomas account (received your username and password) before attempting to access Murphy Online. You will be required to enter your St. Thomas username and password to use Murphy Online.
Under what circumstances should I complete a paper Change in Registration (add/drop) Form?

- To submit a registration once online registration is closed
- To change a course to an audit
- To register for an independent study course
All Change in Registration forms must be delivered or emailed to the Student Data and Registrar or the change (add/drop/withdrawal) is not valid. The form is dated when received and that date determines any tuition refund. See summer session calendar for class deadlines and refund schedule.
First-day Attendance Policy
All undergraduate students must confirm their registered place in a class by attending class on the first day. Students who do not attend class on the first day may be dropped from the course by the instructor. Students are responsible for their summer enrollment and should not rely on an instructor to drop them from a class if they do not plan to attend and complete the course. Students who fail to officially withdraw from a course that they do not attend will be responsible for the tuition and fees associated with the enrollment.
Prerequisites are listed within course descriptions on Classfinder. Click on an individual class to view detailed information, including the schedule and course description.
