spring 2017 registration changes

Students who wish to add a Spring 2017 course to their schedule can do so with the approval of the instructor and the department chair. The registration will need to be done in the Registrar’s Office and a completed Permission to Late Add form is required.   

Today is the last day students can receive a 50% refund for withdrawing from individual classes. After today, there is no refund for a partial withdraw. Students withdrawing from all classes are eligible to receive a 50% refund through February 6.

A 24-hour grace period is provided to students who drop a course that meets for the first time on or after the end of the drop/add period. Students dropping a class within 24 hours of the start date should contact the Registrar’s Office to make sure they receive the correct refund.

Since we are past the drop and add period, students are not able to “swap” sections of a course.  Changing sections will require the student to withdraw from one section and go through the late add process in order to register for another section.

As a reminder, major/minor changes are no longer permitted for the Spring 2017 semester.  Any changes requested will need to be made effective for the next term, Summer I 2017.  Since registration for summer is not open yet, the change will need to be made on SGASTDN. Click here for instructions.
