Open Registration and Add/Drop
After registration appointments have ended, open registration begins. Once open registration begins, all students may register for any open class for which they meet the prerequisite requirements.
It is during the open registration period that most waitlist offers are made. Please be sure to review the Waitlist Information page.
Student may continue to make schedule changes, without penalty, until the end of the business day of the Friday of the first week of classes. All tuition charges are also due on that Friday.
Class waitlists are still active during the first week of classes and daily check-in is required. Please be sure to review the Waitlist Information page for details.
After Week one - Adding and Withdrawing from Classes
After the first week of classes, you may add a class only with instructor permission. You may withdraw from a class until the end of the fifth week of class. A 'W' (withdrawn) grade will be recorded on your transcript. The "W' does not impact your GPA. You will receive a partial tuition refund according to the tuition refund schedule. Please see the student handbook for more information on withdrawing from classes.
After the fifth week of classes you may withdraw only with the permission of both the instructor and the Associate Dean of Student Affairs. A 'WF' (withdrawn failing) grade may be assigned. The 'WF' counts as a failing grade in the calculation of your GPA.
Classes with Early Drop/Withdraw Deadlines
Some classes have earlier drop and withdrawal deadlines. Generally we assign these deadlines if the class involves a commitment to the community or a commitment to a student team. Early deadlines can also be assigned for limited enrollment classes or classes with active waitlists. The drop and withdrawal deadlines for these classes will be announced at least four weeks prior to the start of the semester.
