Registering for Classes

Once a student has been officially admitted to the University he/she may now register for classes. Registration is the means by which a person officially becomes a student at the University. Students must register per semester for the entire semester. Registered students are further identified by department of the University, degree status, classification and major. Registration for continuing students takes place during the preceding semester of any given semester, and for new students following testing, advising activities, and orientation. See the Schedule of Classes for specific dates and course information.

STUDENT REGISTRATION PROCESS

Step 1: Pick up Registration Form in the Office of Admissions/Registrar.

Step 2: Meet with your advisor to choose classes; sign the Registration Form and have your advisor sign Registration Form.

Step 3: If you are thinking about scholarships, financial aid (Pell, Cal Grant, FSEOG), or loans, or even if you are already receiving any of these, you must go to the Financial Aid Office to obtain an estimated Student Tuition Invoice completed by the Financial Aid Advisor. If you are not receiving any scholarship or Financial Aid assistance, skip Step 3 and go directly to Step 4.

Step 4: Go to Business Office with completed Registration Form and Student Tuition Invoice. All forms must have student signature, advisor’s signature and proper information filled out in order to be accepted by the Business Office. Installment Payment Plans are optional (please see Business Office Representative for details).

*Student is not officially enrolled until these steps have been completed.

Students will receive credit for a course, ONLY if they have officially registered for it. It is the student’s responsibility to add/drop any class by completing the required forms. Students who simply stop attending a class or tell the instructor they are dropping the course without filing the required form, will have an unauthorized withdrawal (U) for the class, as indicated in the catalog. The "U" grade is calculated as an "F" in determining GPA.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION FOR ADDING/DROPPING COURSES

  • Students will receive credit for a course, ONLY if they have officially registered for it. It is the student’s responsibility to add/drop any class by completing the required forms.

The “U” grade is calculated as an “F” in determining GPA.
  • Courses dropped before the census date - Courses dropped before 5:30pm on Census Date will not appear on the student’s permanent record.
  • Courses dropped after the census date – Once the Census Date has passed, dropping courses can be done only for compelling reasons and requires the approval of the appropriate Department Chair for each course dropped.
