Change of Registration

The College provides specific timelines each quarter to change schedules. The following guidelines apply to course registration changes:

  • Some courses allow may allow late registration, but the dates and processes vary by program and courses. Please contact the Academic Dean’s office based on the course or call central registration at 531-622-5231.
  • Students may withdraw from a course any time prior to the last day to withdraw from a class date, with no grade. Withdrawing from a course within the designated withdrawal period results in a “W,” which is recorded on the student’s permanent record.
  • Failure to withdraw from a class by the final withdraw date may result in the assignment of an “F” grade to the student’s permanent record.
  • Following the schedule change process is the student’s responsibility. No-attendance does not constitute an official withdrawal or relieve a student of the financial obligation of tuition.
  • Students receiving financial aid are advised to confirm their program of study and eligible coursework through their Navigator or Advisor before making registration changes.
  • All changes must be complete before the census date of the quarter to be included in eligible credits for financial aid.
  • Refunds vary and are based on the start date of the course and the date the class is dropped.
