The student must ensure that classes selected are appropriate to their program, including the number of classes needed to complete requirements for graduation. Particular care should be taken with the sequence in which classes are taken to meet any prerequisite requirements. It is strongly recommended that the student obtain Academic Advising from their department or college as early as possible.
The student may register in a class only when they hold the necessary prerequisite(s) or have obtained a written waiver from a department or college. Prerequisites are stated in terms of the prior completion of certain specified classes. Misrepresentation may lead to disciplinary action.
The University Calendar is the source for prerequisites and program and course details.
Dropping Classes/Changes to Registration
Adding or dropping classes must be done following the procedures set out by the University. If the student is in a college that uses PAWS to register, they must use PAWS to add or drop classes; if the student is in a college that does not use PAWS to register, then their college must add or drop classes for them.
Refunds due to withdrawals are based on the date recorded in PAWS. Failure to properly drop classes will result in responsibility for all assessed fees and the appropriate academic penalty. You are responsible to verify that all registration attempts have been successfully completed.
Non-payment of fees and/or non-attendance of classes does not constitute a cancellation of registration.
The student is responsible for any change of registration made necessary by the results of final grades at the end of a term.
The student will not receive a printed copy of their class registrations. They should confirm their registration through PAWS.
By registering, the student agrees to be bound by the regulations of the University. Registration results in a financial obligation and a responsibility for adhering to the academic and financial deadlines. The student should be aware that academic and financial deadlines are not the same.
The student may not attend classes for which they are not registered, with or without the permission of the instructor.
Tuition and student fees are charged to students at the time of registration. Registration automatically results in a financial obligation. Please check your account in PAWS to verify tuition and fees are assessed accordingly.
Failure to make payment by the stated deadlines will result in the withholding of future services by the University and in some cases may result in the termination of registration. The student will not receive grades or transcripts, will not receive a parchment upon graduation, and will not be eligible to add classes or to reregister until all outstanding accounts have been cleared with Student Accounts and Treasury.
If an error is made in assessing a student's account, upon discovery the student's account will be retroactively reassessed and the student notified of any significant amount credited or owing.
