Adding and dropping courses

Adding a course

Day and Online students may add courses through the first Wednesday of each session or semester. Evening and Nationwide students may add courses through Wednesday of the first week of each session. All students use the "Schedule and Register (Self Service Student Planner)" or "Assisted Registration" links in CougarTrack.  Students will receive a registration confirmation email to their CougarMail account as notification that their enrollment is complete. A student may also register in person at their local campus.

To view or print a class schedule, login to CougarTrack, then click on "Student Class Schedule" under the "Academics" heading.

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 Student Planner and choosing “Drop” on the class on your schedule. A Drop Confirmation will be sent to your CougarMail within 24 hours of your submission. If the Drop button is not active, then the drop period has likely ended.

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.
