Registration Changes

A Change of Registration fee is assessed for any number of add, drop or change transactions (including change of grading option and hardship withdrawals) made during a given day beginning the first day of the Late Add Period for adds or the first day of the Unrestricted Drop Period. The fee is a service charge and is in addition to any change in tuition or forfeiture as a result of adds, drops or changes. There is no charge for changes made in Registration Periods I, II and III.

Fee waivers are rarely approved. If you think your change is necessitated by a University error or is at the University's request, you must pay the fee and submit a petition for a refund to the Registration Office, 225 Schmitz Hall. You will be notified of the decision by the Office of the Registrar. The fee will be waived only if the change is necessitated by a University error or is at the University's request.

See Course Drop Policy for dropping a class when the first day of the course is scheduled to begin after the 7th calendar day of the quarter.
