Conditions of Enrollment
Hawken Summer Studies requires that all students subscribe to the following conditions of enrollment. The $40 non-refundable registration fee secures a student’s place in classes until Monday, June 15, when full payment is due. If a student registers and then withdraws from a class before the end of the first week of that class, one-half of tuition will be refunded. No refunds will be made thereafter. Hawken Summer Studies reserves the right to cancel any course for which there is insufficient demand. In order to balance enrollments and ensure reasonably-sized classes, it may be necessary to change a student’s selected class time if there are two sections of a course offered.
Financial aid determined for the 2020-21 school year does apply to courses considered essential, including courses taken to accelerate curriculum progression, courses taken to remediate academic skills, courses taken for enrichment of academic skills, and courses taken to make room for additional academic courses beyond graduation requirements. Courses taken for the purpose of reducing a schedule load in the fall are not eligible for application of financial aid. Questions about financial aid can be directed to the Summer Studies office. Health courses, including Health 1 and First Aid/CPR/AED, are limited to $50 for Health 1 and $25 for First Aid/CPR/AED, regardless of flexible tuition percentage awarded. We are sorry, but we cannot offer financial aid to students who attend schools other than Hawken.

Student Evaluations Parents of students will receive their child’s written evaluation during the week following completion of each course. These grades and/or comments will be delivered using email by default. If you need to have the reports printed and sent by regular mail, contact our office. Six-week courses will also provide a mid-term evaluation. Families will receive a form with which to make requests to have evaluations and/or grades forwarded to other schools.
Academic Credit Hawken School academic credit is granted only as specified in individual course descriptions. If a student does not attend Hawken, permission to seek academic credit should be cleared through the administration at the student’s school in advance of taking a course.
