All course adds, drops or changes must be completed by the end of the second week of the semester or earlier if the course is less than 15 weeks in length.
Some suggestions for late registration:
Use the Registration System to add and drop courses without penalty as long as the total number of credits you are registered in remains the same or increases. When more credits are dropped than added, these credits will be refunded at a rate of 50% per credit.
If you drop any courses after the semester begins and you have not made any payments toward your account, you may still owe Douglas College tuition and/or fees. The amount owed will be determined by the date and number of credits dropped.
If all fees are not paid in full by January 20, 2020, you will be charged a late payment penalty of $25 per registered course and a Registration & Activity Hold will also be applied to your account. A late payment penalty of $100 will be applied to those accounts that are still outstanding on February 21 and March 20, 2020.
You can continue to drop courses during this period after late registration. A "W" grade will be recorded on your transcript. There is no refund for courses dropped during this time. All of these transactions must be completed using the Registration System. You do not need to obtain a signature from your instructor or from any other person within the College.
NOTE: The time lines noted above are applicable for courses of 14 weeks in duration. Shorter courses have pro-rated deadlines. Check with the Registrar's Office for deadlines if your course is shorter than 14 weeks.
Tuition fees for newly added courses are due immediately.
If all fees are not paid in full by January 20, 2020 you will be charged a late payment penalty of $25 per registered course and a Registration & Activity Hold will also be applied to your account.
The College provides two formal procedures for students to seek resolutions of disagreements: appeals and complaints. They differ in purpose and process, but in both cases, students are encouraged to try to resolve their concerns informally. It is also advisable that students consult with a College counsellor for assistance and guidance.
Important: Students must present a written petition or appeal to the Registrar within the four (4) month period following receipt of the original decision which they are appealing. Failure to comply with this deadline will result in the appeal being denied. Students can request an extension of this deadline in extraordinary circumstances.
Please refer to the official College Calendar for more detailed information concerning appeals, petitions and formal complaints.
