Schedule Changes and Total Withdrawals


Adding and Dropping Courses


 Before the Semester Begins

Schedule changes can be made by the student, advisor, or departmental support staff.  No registration changes will be made in the Registrar's Office until classes begin.

A student may make any registration changes for the 2014 Fall term through August 26.

NOTE: The dates above apply to full-term courses. 

Schedule Change Steps:

1. Obtain approval from student's academic advisor to make changes to the existing class schedule; if changing sections only, advisor approval is not required.

2. Changes will either be made by the advisor, or the advisor can elect to provide a Student Registration Code allowing the student to make changes using the OneTech portal. Students will use the Register and Add/Drop Classes link (located in the Registration Tools block under the Student tab) to make schedule changes.

Online registration is available for the 2014 Fall term April 7 - August 26.

NOTE: Course section numbers may indicate unusual course characteristics, such as meeting at a location other than the Russellville campus, or a mixed technology class that is web-based and occasionally meets on campus. Refer to Section Numbers Decoded for more information.

NOTE: Students enrolling in web-based courses can visit eTech for eLearning resources and important course-related information.

3. Check the class schedule; it is the student's responsibility to verify the registration has been completed accurately, so it is recommended that students print a copy of their class schedule for their records. Students may view their schedule by selecting Student Schedule, which is listed under Registration Tools. Refer to Building Abbreviations for helpful information and a link to the campus map.

4. Federal regulations for financial aid require attendance (physical attendance, submission of an assignment, OR completion of the Blackboard Attendance Accounting module) in all registered courses; if you fail to attend prior to the attendance date for a course, you will be dropped for non-attendance. There is no reinstatement when dropped for non-attendance; there are no exceptions to this policy.

5. Pay charges and/or confirm financial settlement according to Fee Payment Policy. Visit the webistes for Student Accounts and Financial Aid for more information.

Important Information: Students who have enrolled in classes but decide not to attend Tech must officially withdraw from classes. See Withdrawing for more information.
