The University Registrar's Office publishes registration
information for each semester. The University expects students to complete
registration within the published time frame. A late registration
fee may be assessed for enrollment after the registration period;
incomplete registrations are considered late. The fee applies
to a student who willingly chooses to delay registration.
Students are not permitted to enroll after the last day of
registration without the approval of the Academic Affairs Office. Students are
responsible for all courses listed on confirmation forms. Credit
may not be earned in a course without proper and timely registration.
A final grade of X is assigned in any course that is dropped
unofficially, and cannot be changed after the grade is recorded.
Changes in Registration
The student initiates changes in registration in the Registration
Office. Any change
after confirmation must be submitted on a Class Schedule Change
form (also known as a Drop/Add form). The student must secure approval from the appropriate officials. The change is complete
when the student submits the approved form to the Registration
Office. A class schedule change fee is applicable after the first few days of each term unless necessitated by faculty action.
Students may benefit from auditing a class. When a course
is audited, no credit is given and the work cannot be counted
later for credit. Students enrolled as full-time students are
permitted to enroll in one additional course by audit. Auditing
is not permitted in private lessons, laboratory, performance,
or skill courses. Auditing is subject to the applicable fees
Courses in which C- or lower grades were received may be
repeated. Other courses may not be repeated without approval
of the Academic Standards Committee. The most recent grade is
used in computing the cumulative grade point average. The original
grade remains on the transcript. Credit hours count only once
toward graduation. Tuition must be paid for repeated courses. See the Director of the University Registrar's Office for details on appealing a course.
Withdrawal from a Course
1. A student may withdraw from a course without a grade
of W until the sixth Friday of the semester.
2 A student may withdraw from a course with a grade of
W after the sixth Friday of the semester and until the
last date to drop a course (one week after midterm).
3. Grades of WF or WP are assigned to courses when the
student withdraws from a course after the last day to
withdraw from a course. This requires an extenuating
circumstance and approval of the Assistant Vice
President for Academic Administration.
Failing a course is not considered an extenuating
circumstance. The Class Schedule Change form must be
completed for any registration change. The tuition refund
policy is in effect.
Withdrawal from University
Withdrawal from the University is begun with the Student Success Coordinator. The Withdrawal Form must be
signed by designated administrative officers and filed in
the University Registrar's Office. The
withdrawal refund policy applies. Grades of W are
assigned to all courses when the student withdraws from
the University prior to the last day to withdraw from a
course. Grades of WF or WP are assigned to courses when
the student withdraws after the last day to withdraw from a
course as designated on the University calendar. The
permanent grade of X is assigned to courses when the
published withdrawal procedure is not followed and
applicable deposits are forfeited.
