Course Registration

Where do I register for classes?

Course registration is online.

When is registration?

Course registration information is posted by the Registrar's Office. Typically it begins in:

  • Late March or early April for the Fall semester
  • Late March or early April for the Summer semester
  • Early November for the Spring semester

What is the deadline for adding classes?

During the registration period (before the end of the second week of classes) students may add or drop courses using GWeb. After the second week of classes, students who wish to add or drop a course must complete a Registration Transaction Form and submit the form to the office of their dean; forms are available on line, at deans' offices, and in the Office of the Registrar. Adding a course after the second week requires a signature of the instructor or other authorized member of the department.

Starting on the first day of classes, to avoid financial penalties, students switching classes (swapping one 3 credit class for another 3 credit class) should use the hard copy registration transaction form. Students should complete and submit the form to the program coordinator.

What is the deadline for dropping classes?

A course dropped during the first four weeks of classes will not appear on the student's transcript. A course dropped after the fourth week but before the end of the eighth week will be assigned a notation of W (Authorized Withdrawal).

The deadline for dropping a course without academic penalty is the end of the eighth week of classes in the fall and spring semesters. After the end of the eighth week of classes, dropping a course without academic penalty is only possible after the student presents a petition to the dean and receives written permission.

What is the refund policy (or financial penalty) for dropping classes?

All charges for courses from which the student withdraws are subject to the refund policy listed under Fees and Financial Regulations. Failure to withdraw by these procedures can result in an extended financial obligation and the recording of a grade of F (Failure) or a notation of Z (Unauthorized Withdrawal).

The refund schedule is posted on the Office of the Registrar's Registration page, for each semester (look for "printable pdf version").

How do I switch classes? What about after classes have started?

Before classes begin students can use GWeb to simultaneously add and drop a course of equal credit value.

First week of classes students can use GWeb to simultaneously add and drop a course of equal credit value.

Second through fourth week of classes students must complete a registration transaction form to swap (add and drop) classes of equal or lesser credits. Students should then return the form to the TSPPPA office for approval and forwarding to the appropriate office. Students should not attempt to do this through GWeb, and should not follow up with the same actions on GWeb; GWeb will not process the add/drop as a transfer (single action), but as an add/drop (two unrelated actions). This means that financial penalties may be assessed to your account.

Do you offer summer courses?
