Registration for new students is conducted during the week prior to the beginning of instruction. Priority registration is open to continuing students in good academic standing with a cumulative GPA of 2.00 and above and is held before the end of each semester.

Students registering after the regularly scheduled registration period are required to pay the late registration fee. The registration fee is paid at the Business and Finance Office. Further instructions are available from the Records Office. For information on fees, see the Tuition & Fees page.

If a student registers and pays only the required registration fees, the student is still responsible for the remaining balance of any tuition and fees. This includes balances incurred during priority registration. If the student is unable to attend classes, the appropriate add/drop policy on the Changes in Registration page or Withdrawals procedures must be followed. Failure to attend classes does not exempt the student from paying any remaining tuition and fees.
