Adding a course
Day and Online students may add courses through the first Wednesday of each session or semester and Evening and Nationwide students may add courses through Wednesday of the first week of each session using various online registration options within CougarTrack (found in the "Academics" drop-down menu, and then the "Registration" menu). These options include "Search and Register for Classes", "Express Registration", "Register or Drop Classes" and "Assisted Registration" (if available). Students will receive a registration confirmation email to their CougarMail account as notification that their enrollment is complete. To view or print a class schedule, login to CougarTrack, then click on "Student Class Schedule" under the "Academics" heading. A student may also register in person at their local campus.
Graduate Students: Please refer to the Graduate Calendar for deadlines to register, add and drop courses.
Dropping a course
Once enrolled in a class, a student is considered a member of that class until he or she officially drops or withdraws. Students may drop a course for any reason after enrollment through the first business day of the second week of each session or semester. Please refer to the Academic Calendar for specific dates. Students may drop from a course by logging on to CougarTrack and completing the drop process through the "Register or Drop Classes" form found in the "Registration" section of the "Academics" menu. A Drop Confirmation will be sent to your CougarMail within 24 hours of your submission.
No punitive grade or financial liability will be issued with the exception of:
Day students: Once classes have started, students wishing to discontinue enrollment must complete formal withdrawal procedures with the Dean of Student Affairs. If a student withdraws from school (i.e. drops all classes), then he/she may be eligible for a pro-rated tuition credit depending on the completion date of the total withdrawal process. For more information, please review the Undergraduate Catalog.
Graduate students: Please refer to the Graduate Calendar for deadlines to register, add and drop courses.
For more in-depth information about adding or dropping courses, students should review their campus Catalog or contact their academic advisor.
