Students are expected to participate in pre-registration periods prior to their next term of attendance.
The semester schedule of classes carries instructions regarding registration and, in the calendar, shows the dates of the various steps in the registration procedure. This pre-registration program makes it possible to start classes promptly.
Some individuals who were not enrolled in the preceding semester or term register immediately preceding the beginning of classes, and there are always some who have special permission to register in the late registration period (see the Catalog) after the beginning of classes. The penalties for late registration keep the number of latecomers low.
Student enrollment adjustments outside calendar deadlines must be authorized by the instructor of the class and/or the departmental chairperson. Pending on how late the adjustment request occurs - additional signature authorizations may be required.
Is the student attending the course to resolve an incomplete from a previous term?Yes - the student should work with the instructor to complete the requirements for the course. A new enrollment should not be processed (use previous enrollment).No – student needs to enroll for the course. If this occurs after add/drop deadlines for the term, the instructor must give permission for the student to add the course.
Please note – the processing of permission paperwork must be completed as quickly as possible due to the potential impact on student fees and Scholarships/Financial Aid. Any questions relating to this topic should be directed to the Registration area at 285-1684 or via email.
