Read Before Registering: By following the guidelines below you can eliminate many of the common problems that occur during registration. Otherwise we will have to contact you and request you to come to our office.
Remember: Your registration priority is determined by the total numbers of hours earned added to the hours in which you are currently enrolled at the time of registration.
When meeting with your advisor, all students should write Alternate Courses at the bottom of their Registration Form in the event that one of the courses is closed or has a time conflict with another course. This should be a different course from the other courses already listed and not just a different section of a course already listed.
Make certain you have completed the prerequisites for each course before you write it on your registration form. If there is any doubt refer to the College Catalog for clarification. Online registration will not permit you to register without the completion of prerequisites or approval with an Approval Card.

Auditing a Course
Students may audit a course, but this should not be done for any courses required for graduation. You will complete an Audit Form in the Registrar’s Office. There is a calendar deadline for this option.
Pass/Fail Course Option
A student may choose to take a course for Pass/ Fail if it is strictly for elective hours, and the course does not fulfill a major, minor, allied, concentration, or general education requirement.
A Pass/Fail Card can be filled out in the Registrar’s Office. There is a calendar deadline for this option.
300/400 Level Courses
Freshmen may not take 300 or 400 level courses without permission from the Academic Dean.
In the event that one of the courses you want to register for is closed, you may waitlist for this course. This course is on your schedule in the computer. If an open slot becomes available in the course, the next person on the waiting list will be added by the Registrar’s Office into the course.
A new copy of your schedule would then be sent to you in order to notify you of this change. The Waitlist is only used until the first day of classes.
