Advance registration is a period of time whereby registration can be effected for students, during any particular semester for a succeeding semester, with a specific cancellation date if certain actions are not completed by the student.
These actions consist of either paying the fees owed, as indicated by the fee statement, or submitting the fee statement to the financial aid section of the business office, if they have approved financial aid. The fee statement, in all cases, will be verified with the computer enrolment data.
Students who do not comply with one of the two actions described above will be on a cancellation list to the admissions and records office following the specified deadline date.
Regular registration is the time frame immediately prior to the beginning of a semester where a student registers for classes. A student can be either registering for the first time, for this particular semester, or was unable to complete the advance registration process for this particular semester and is re-registering.
The registration process is not complete until payment of fees is completed. The payment of fees is considered complete when monies are remitted for all fees, or an approved financial aid recipient has submitted his or her fee statement to the business office. If a student’s payment of fees has not been received by the appropriate registration deadline, the student will be on a cancellation list which will be forwarded to the admissions and records office following this deadline date.
The receiving of a fee statement from an approved financial aid recipient obligates student to either complete the financial aid process, or formally withdraw from the University. Once the fee statement is submitted, a student is not placed on a cancellation list.
