Sudents taking one class in the summer can apply for a private alternative loan to assist with the costs. Students who are Pell eligible and taking two courses may qualify for grant funding. For more information, please contact the Financial Aid Office at or 315-781-3315.


Notification of withdrawal and requests for refunds must be made in writing and addressed to the appropriate Dean. A full refund will be given to students who withdraw before the third day of classes. After this deadline, tuition/room/board charges and the return of federal and education loans and other sources of aid will be prorated based upon the percentage of the term that the student is enrolled. If the student is enrolled past 60% of the term, there is no refund of costs of attendance. The official withdrawal date used by the appropriate Deans Office will be used to determine the prorated refund.


Students may apply for summer housing here.

BIOL 324 Anatomy with Lab
In-Person Course
Professor Brielle Fischman
Scientific Inquiry (Substantial)

This course presents a systemic approach to the study of the human body using an immersive format with fused lecture and lab. This course covers the same material and will fulfill the same pre-health requirements as the semester-long course. Course topics begin with an introduction of anatomical terminology and an overview of cellular processes and tissue classification. Students then are introduced to the gross and microscopic anatomy of the following systems: skeletal, muscular, nervous, respiratory, cardiovascular, digestive, urinary, and reproductive. Students will also develop an understanding of how these systems develop during early embryology, as well as learning the clinical relevance of disease and disorders that affect anatomy. One of the goals of this course is to provide an understanding of human anatomy which then provides the foundation for clinical diagnosis and decisions. The laboratory component of the course reinforces lecture concepts with practical hands-on learning including study of anatomical models, dissection of preserved animal, and solving clinical case studies. Prerequisite: BIOL 167.
