After You've Registered  4 4 17-1.jpg
7 DAYS TO PAY All students who have an outstanding balance must pay for classes within 7 days of their registration date or you may be deregistered. This rule applies until the day before classes start. After class starts, you cannot be dropped from classes for non-payment. You must pay your account in full before the next term registration starts or you will be blocked from registration. 

WAIT LISTING CLASSES During the registration period, students may place themselves on the wait list for a class that is full. Students on the wait list will be notified if a vacancy occurs and will receive an email. You will have three days to register for the class. Do not wait list for a class until you are ready to take the class or have submitted the appropriate documentation to register successfully. If you are blocked from enrollment, a red message alert will help guide you to the appropriate department for additional help.

After classes begin  4 4 17-1.jpg
LATE ADD PERIOD is typically, the first two weeks of school. This is the time when students have the opportunity to add classes to their schedule by attending a class and requesting an Add Code. For online classes, students may email the instructor and receive an add code to enroll. It is highly recommended that you attend (and be on time) the first day of the class meeting to attain an Add Code or be considered for receiving an Add Code. Students enrolled in classes but do not attend the first day of class, may be dropped. 

REGISTER WITH AN ADD CODE To use the Add Code to enroll in a class, go to WebAdvisor and under the Registration heading choose "Register with an add code." Enter the term, class section number (only) and your add code. Submit and follow the instructions to register for the class. If your code is not working, check that you are using the code within the correct dates of the "Add Period" or verify the code with your instructor. Add codes are only valid during the posted "Late Add Period," for the current session. See the Late Start - Short Term Course Sections Report for additional dating.

LATE ADD/DROP A class may be added after the Late Add Period based on extenuating circumstances by submitting a Late Add/Drop Petition and providing the appropriate documentation to support your request. 

DROPPING A CLASS Any class can be dropped at any time during the semester based on the times outlined on the Registration Calendar or on the Late Start/ Short Term Class Schedule. The most important dates during the semester to remember are:

     a. Any class can be dropped before the class starts without being penalized. No grade will show on  
         your transcript.

     b. Last day to drop a class without a "W" grade and a refund. No grade will show on your transcript and
         you will be refunded based on the Fees and Refunds schedule.

     c. Last day to drop a class with a "W" grade. A grade of "W", withdraw, will be assigned for the class.

     d. At any time during the semester you can petition to drop a class due to extenuating circumstances by
         filing out a Late Add/Drop Petition and providing the appropriate documentation to support your
         request.
