Registration Dates and Deadlines

It is best to register for all classes as early as possible.


Late registration

  • can delay disbursement of financial aid
  • may make you miss important communications from your instructor because you are not on the class roster or in the online learning management system before classes start
  • on or after classes start, can result in a late fee of $25 for each day schedule additions or changes are requested
