Some classes have prerequisites. It could be a test score, meaning a student has to demonstrate that they are eligible for the course based on a standardized placement exams like the COMPASS, ACT, SAT or ASSET. Other courses may require the completion of prerequisite courses before registering (for example, a student needs to successfully complete ACCT1200 –Principles of Accounting I before they can register for ACCT1210 – Principles of Accounting II).
If a student has taken courses at another institution or they have copies of placement exam scores they should bring a copy of their transcripts or scores along with them when registering.
Many of the Programs of Study courses have limited lab or equipment space. Only students who are declared in their program(s) may register for those courses. If an Undeclared student wants to enroll in a Program of Study course, that student would need to contact the program chair and receive special written permission to enroll.
Dropping classes cannot be done over the phone or via email. Failing to show up for courses does not constitute an official drop. Students can withdraw from courses after the first week of classes and before the posted drop deadline each term and receive a ‘withdraw’ on their transcripts. However, students who withdraw after the first week of classes have expired may still owe tuition for those classes. If a student is receiving financial aid it is highly recommended that they contact the Financial Aid Office before dropping a class!
Students must submit an official drop form prior to the drop or refund deadline to be eligible for a tuition-and-student-services-fee refund. Failure to attend classes does not absolve the student from making complete payment for all tuition and fees associated with the student’s registration. NOTE: Students who have failed a class due to academic integrity or other disciplinary reasons are not eligible to drop or withdraw.
"No Show" students will be billed and held responsible for full payment of tuition and fees for the classes they do not drop [within the designated refund period].Tuition charges for those courses may still be assessed and Financial aid will not be dispersed for courses that the student does not attend and does not officially withdraw from.
