Submission Instructions

  • Students should consult with their academic adviser before making any course changes.
  • Dates for the regular course drop and add periods can be found on the Academic Calendar located on the Registrar's home page.
  • Late course adds and late course registration are those processed after the regular add period end for the semester. The late course drop period starts after the drop period ends and continues to the published late drop deadline. These time frames are proportional for other than fifteen-week calendars.
  • Section changes can be done through the end of the twelfth week of classes at the Registrar's office.
  • Students are expected to register before classes begin. Registering late will incur additional fees.
  • Starting with the first day of the semester, the tuition bill must be paid before any course add can be processed.
  • Students dropping below full-time or their originally scheduled credit level may be assessed a tuition penalty.
