Registration Procedures


Students are required to register on registration day.  If a student fails to do so, the student must wait until all other students have completed registration in order to sign up for classes.  Both summer and fall semesters have registration days.

Add/Drop Classes

Students who wish to make changes in their course schedule after registration may do so by completing an ADD/DROP card.  ADD/DROP cards may be obtained from the Academic Programs Office and require signatures from the Academic Advisor and professors of affected courses.  Deadlines for adding and dropping courses are listed in the academic calendar.  Students should note the deadlines carefully.  It is difficult to get approval for an exception to these deadlines.

Withdrawal from Class

Students cannot add a class after the ADD/DROP deadline.  If a student wants to drop a class after the deadline, it becomes a WITHDRAWAL and he/she needs to complete an ADD/DROP card with signatures.  If a student withdraws, a "W" will be recorded on his/her grade report.  The deadline for withdrawing from a class is listed in the academic calendar.
