Add a Course / Late Registration Policy

In order to get the best selection of courses and class times, students are encouraged to register early. Course schedules should be planned carefully so that changes after classes have begun are kept to a minimum. Students should also be aware that tuition, program length, and financial aid may be affected by course and/or section changes.

To allow flexibility in planning schedules for the 2020–2021 academic year, students may enroll/change schedules during the first five academic calendar days of the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters. Students must consult with an advisor or academic/college success advisor to add a course to their schedule after the course begins.

  • Fall 2020 semester add/change a course dates: August 24–28, 2020.

Please note that typically all new registrations must be completed by the end of the day on the Saturday before the term begins. Schedule changes are permitted through the second calendar day of any course (excluding Minimesters and select other courses). After the second calendar day of a course, a student may not add the course. Registration after the second calendar day of class is not permitted. Because vital instruction begins on day one, students are also encouraged to attend the class they wish to add.

Per initiatives of Retention and MORE a student must also have an ACTIVE program/major to register for classes.

Please keep in mind that your financial aid grants will not be adjusted as a result of any changes in your enrollment after the financial aid lock date, including late start classes. Refer to the Financial Aid Handbook for more information.
