Fall registration changes

Students who wish to add a Fall 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 September 29.

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. 

spring 2018

The Spring 2018 schedule opens for viewing one week from today and registration begins on Monday, October 9.  The complete registration schedule can be found on the Registrar’s Office website.

Major and minor changes

As a reminder, changes to a student's major or minor will need to be made effective in Banner for the Spring 2018 semester. This is to prevent a student's fall tuition from being reassessed if they are moving to or from a college with differential tuition. 
Since registration has ended, these changes will need to done through SGASTDN; not SFAREGS. Click here for instructions. Once registration opens for Spring 2018, you will be able to make the changes through SFAREGS.
