Late Registration

Students who have not completed registration by the dates specified in the Winter Session Registration Calendar may register online or by contacting the Office of the Registrar during the Late Registration Period.

Students who have not completed their registration or paid their term bill by the start of the session may submit a Late Registration Form through the Summer & Winter Session's Application Portal. Registration is contingent upon instructor approval. The Office of Summer & Winter Sessions will request that approval on your behalf. All status updates and messaging will be through the Application Portal. If a late registration request is approved, students must pay their term bill immediately.

Closed Courses & Special Permissions

There are instances when registration in certain closed courses may be allowed. Please contact the academic department offering the course to determine option availability. If approval is granted by the academic department, a six-digit Special Permission Number will be issued to the student by that department. The Special Permission Number must be entered when prompted by WEBREG or provided to the Office of the Registrar if registering in person.

To drop or change a course before the session begins, please visit WebReg or contact the Office of the Registrar. Refer to the Winter Session Registration Calendar for the specific date information. 

To withdraw once the session begins, please contact the Office of the Registrar. It is the student's responsibility to verify that their financial account and registration schedule have been successfully updated after withdrawing. Please refer to the Winter Session Registration Calendar for the partial refund and no refund withdrawal dates.
