Appointments are assigned in priority-order over a 5 week period to degree-seeking students. The assignment is based on the students earned hours at the time appointments are assigned. Appointment times are not assigned over weekends. The student registration appointment will permit registration for all terms in the Academic Year in which the student is eligible. The order in which priority is assigned is provided below. Within each group, priority is further defined by earned hours, giving students in the same group priority based upon more earned hours.

Please follow all directions and deadlines stated on the appropriate late add form.

Drop/Withdrawal

Dropping/Withdrawing from classes can be done via CampusNet through the established deadline reflected in the academic calendar.

Medical Withdrawal

Students seeking a medical withdrawal from the university are strongly encouraged to consult with their college advising office before making any registration changes. Once they have withdrawn from classes, students need to consult with the Office of Treasury Services.

Military Withdrawal

Students who are called to active military duty have two options for their class work. Students may:

  1. Withdraw ("W") from ALL courses with a full refund of all tuition and fees; or
  2. Take and Incomplete ("I") for ALL courses with the understanding that the "I" would be extended until the student has had an opportunity to finish class requirements following his/her return to school after the completion of active duty status.

Affected students need to present an official copy of the military orders to the Office of the University Registrar (MC 116) and to their instructors. The Office of the University Registrar will provide copies of the orders to the Office of Treasury Services and Financial Aid Office. All questions about financial aid implications can be directed to the Financial Aid Office at (216) 687-3764.
