Registration Policies

Registration policies are published in the Academic Requirements section of the Student Handbook. The following highlights will help you register successfully.

Dates and Deadlines

Students are responsible for knowing the dates, times and deadlines for registration. Students who miss a registration appointment are not guaranteed the registration priority they would have received at their assigned appointment time. Students who miss a lottery deadline are not guaranteed inclusion in the lottery.

Students are also responsible for knowing the deadlines for enrollment changes. Students attempting to make enrollment changes outside of the published dates or deadlines may have their request to add a class or withdraw from a class denied.

Account Restrictions

A restriction may be placed on your account if you have a past due balance with the law school Business Office or any other campus office. Restrictions are also placed on your account if you failed to validate for the current semester or if you have not yet turned in an official undergraduate transcript. All of these restrictions will prevent you from registering. You can check your restrictions by logging onto SUOnline, going to the student menu and checking Student Restrictions.

General Registration Policies

Credit loads, prerequisite waivers and other general policies are covered in our registration guidelines.

Courses with Special Registration Policies

There are special policies governing registration for clinics, externships, independent study and co-curricular credits (journals and competitions).

Late Registration and Withdrawal from Courses

Enrollment changes made after the add/drop deadline are governed by Seattle University School of Law's late registration and withdrawal from classes policies.
