All students eligible to register (students enrolled in the preceding regular session and new or reentering students who have completed application and have been accepted) will be supplied by the Registrar with directions for registration. Students are advised by members of the faculty and must file properly approved study lists with the Registrar during the registration period. Preregistration service is provided by the Office of the Registrar. Registrations not completed by the close of the listed registration days (see calendar) will require a fee of $20 to cover the additional expenses of late registration procedure. An additional late fee of $5 per day will be charged beginning the second day after registration day.
A student will not be permitted to register for any course, including directed study and special topics, after the first two weeks of the semester without the written approval of the Associate Dean of Instruction. A faculty member may determine an earlier closing date for a particular course.
No student will be permitted to register for any course if, in the judgment of the instructor in charge, he or she lacks sufficient preparation to undertake the work. An instructor may, with the approval of the Vice President for Academic Affairs, drop from a class any student who shows marked delinquency in attendance, who neglects his or her work, or who proves incompetent to pursue the work of the course.
The normal student load is 16 hours of class work in a week. No student will be permitted to register for more than 18 hours, without the special permission of the Committee on Academic Standards. An extra charge is made for each hour or fraction of an hour taken in excess of the 18-hour maximum load.
Outside Employment: Students carrying a considerable load of outside work must reduce their school program accordingly. The following schedule is a guide to counselors and students:
