You might have a hold that’s preventing you from registering for classes. Please look at the message that appears on Self Service when you try to register and contact the department who placed the hold on your account. Examples of common holds: business office hold, advising hold, or health clearance hold.
Prerequisites are courses they need to be completed with a “C” or better prior to registering for the next sequential course. For example, EN 102 and COM 101 are prerequisites for all upper division courses (300-400 level) and needs to be completed with a “C” or better before you may register for them.
Day Undergraduate students can only register for courses ending in “-1” (e.x. EN 101-01-1). If you try to register for courses that are restricted, then you may get the message “granted petition is required”. Some courses are restricted for students and need advisor or faculty approval before students can be registered for the courses.
Seniors have priority registration to register first, however, if you were unable to register in a timely manner for other reasons, we suggest meeting with your academic advisor to figure out a plan. Your advisor may contact the instructor for Closed Course approvals for you to be added to a full class or discuss the option of taking the course as an Individualized Study.
An Individualized Study is available to Juniors (completed 60+ credit hours) and Seniors (completed 90+ credit hours) who need a major or minor requirement to graduate that is not being offered, conflicts with another required course, or was canceled. Students are eligible to do 1 Individualized Study per semester; however, it is possible to do more than 1 with approvals and if there are extenuating circumstances.
You will need to fill out an Enrollment Overload Authorization form and your advisor will need to approve your rationale for overload. Students may be approved for overload if they are graduating and need to take 21 credits in their last semester or other extenuating circumstances. You will be charged per credit hour for any credits over 19.
The last day you can register for classes is the last day of Add/Drop, which is the period after the semester starts where students can make changes to their schedule. For specific dates for the Add/Drop period for each semester, please reference the academic calendar.
You will not be able to drop yourself from any classes after add/drop. Please contact your academic advisor to withdraw from courses and they will forward your request to the Records Office. If it is before the withdraw without record (WNR) deadline, then class(es) can be withdrawn without showing up on your transcript. If it is past the WNR deadline, then any classes you withdraw from will show up as a “W” on your transcript. If you are on scholarship or other financial and/or a student athlete, please confirm how withdrawing from a course (especially if you are dropping from full time status (12-19 credits) to part time (less than 12 credits) will affect your eligibility.
If you received a “D” in a prerequisite course (ex. EN 102), then you will need to repeat the course. If you receive an “F” in a course, then you will need to repeat it regardless and will not receive credits for the course. You may repeat a course if you want to obtain a better grade. Meet with your advisor if you are unsure about needing to repeat class(es).
You should complete your graduation application two semesters prior to your intended graduation date. You can submit your application on Self-Service. Meet with your academic advisor and faculty advisor beforehand to confirm your graduation date.
No, Day Undergraduate students cannot take FLEX courses. Special consideration may be made for students with extenuating circumstances, however, it is recommended to find alternative options before considering FLEX.
Yes, it is possible to be dually enrolled at courses here and at another school. However, the cumulative number of credits between both campuses cannot exceed 19 credits.
