Spring schedule changes

Students who wish to add a Spring 2018 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.   Students who are not registered for at least one class prior to census will be charged a late add fee of $100 per course.  If a student was registered prior to census and is adding additional courses, the late fee does not apply.

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 5.

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.

Program changes

As a reminder, major/minor changes are no longer permitted for the spring 2018 semester. Any changes requested will need to be made effective for the next term, summer I 2018. Since registration for summer is not open yet, the change will need to be made in SGASTDN. Click here for detailed instructions

Summer registration

The summer I and summer II schedules open for viewing this morning. Summer registration will open on February 5. The priority registration can be found on the Registrar's Office website

Canceled graduation letters

Every year our office reaches out to students who applied to graduate but have not yet earned their degree.  These students may be short a class or two, have unmet financial obligations, or have experienced unforeseeable circumstances.  The letter encourages students to finish their outstanding requirements, provides registration dates and contact information for Graduation Auditing.  This year letters were sent to 533 students who attempted to graduate between fall 2015 and summer 2017. 
Graduation Auditing also sent a reminder email to 286 students who have been approved by their advisor to submit their application for graduation but have not yet done so.  The email outlined the upcoming deadlines for submitting applications; February 1 for summer graduation and August 1 for fall graduation. 

Fact of the week

Over 200 students, 15% of the December graduating class, have outstanding issues preventing the awarding of their degree.  These students have until January 30 to satisfy degree requirements or they will be canceled from the graduating class.
