Fall 2023 Semester - Late Registration
(September 12 to 18, 2023)

Registering for Classes

During the late registration period, you will only be allowed to register for a course if you received a LATE REGISTRATION OVERRIDE from the instructor. The override will expire after 24 hours, make sure to complete your registration as soon as possible.
Please respect that instructors have the right to decide how many additional students they will let into their course.
No waitlist offers will be sent during this period. 

To register for a course using a Late Registration Override: 

  • On your myAccount, check > Registration Prepare for Registration page to verify that your instructor entered the Late Registration Override for your course. If you do not have a note about the course under Permit Override, you will not be allowed to register. Please contact your instructor. Again, the instructor will decide if they are willing to accept any students. Not all students will receive an override to register.  
  • After you confirmed that you have a Late Registration Override, go to Register for Classes.  
  • If you are on the waitlist, use the Action pull-down menu to change your status to **Registered**.
  • If you are NOT on the waitlist, add your course and register as usual. 
  • To complete registration, you must click on Submit under Summary.
  • Check the Status of the course to make sure your course is fully registered. 

Dropping Classes

If you drop or change a section of a course during this period, you will receive a 50% tuition refund per class dropped, even if you replace your class or change sections of a course. Classes dropped between the 8th and 14th calendar day of the semester, will not appear on your permanent record.
The registration system will not allow you to drop from waitlists at this time.
The option under the Action pull-down menu at this time to drop is Drop – Late Registration.
