Tuesday, April 18 is the last day for a student to withdraw from a course or from the College.

Student Registration and Holds

If your office places holds on student accounts that prevent them from registering, you will hopefully be seeing an increase in student traffic before the registration period begins. Most registration times begin at 7:00 a.m., when many offices are unavailable to clear holds for students (see registration times for details). Please encourage students to be proactive and resolve holds ahead of time.

Dates to Remember

March 13: Summer Registration
March 22: Midterm Grades Due
March 13–24: Fall Advising

Spread the Word!

The Registrar’s Office is strongly encouraging that, prior to their registration time, students:

  • Resolve their holds
  • Review course prerequisites and course restrictions
  • Obtain online permissions

These recommendations go a long way toward minimizing registration disappointment and reducing unpleasant surprises. Any assistance in spreading the word to students would be greatly appreciated!
