Academic Advising

Students should select classes with the guidance of their advisor based on their degree plan as stated in their Academic Bulletin. Students must contact their advisor in order to register.

Process to Confirm Courses

Students who are not financially clear may reserve classes until August 15 for fall term, or the third day of classes for spring term. Once the financial portion of Registration Central is finalized, reserved classes are automatically registered (confirmed). If students are unable to finalize their financial plan, all reserved courses for any term are dropped (cancelled).

Late Registration Fee

Students are given a specific time period to register for the first time from the date when registration opens until the first day of classes. Students registering after the first day of classes are charged a late registration fee. Changes may be made to existing registration without a fee before the Drop/Add deadline.
