Registration (Add/Drop) Calendars for Condensed Courses
 

Once you have registered, please review your student schedule prior to attending your first course. Course locations and meeting times can change from the time you have registered for the course. Pay attention especially to start and end dates of the course. If the course dates are not the start and end dates of the term, the course is a condensed course and has different attendance, registration, drop, and refund dates. 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.

Early Registration is for currently enrolled students based on the number of credit hours earned prior to the start of the current semester. Students must consult with their advisor before registering for classes. An appointment schedule will be posted on/near the advisor's office door. Distance learners/night students must contact their advisor in order to discuss the process for registration. Students will either be registered in classes by their advisor or the advisor may elect to provide a student registration code allowing the student to register in classes using the OneTech portal.

Students currently enrolled in the spring 2022 semester may be eligible to register for the future based on their number of earned hours at the start of the spring 2022 semester according to the following schedule:

March 1 All Graduate Students
Seniors, 90 or more earned hours
March 3 Juniors, 60-89 earned hours
March 8 Sophomores, 30-59 earned hours
March 10 Freshman, 29 or fewer earned hours
