MAKING CHANGES TO YOUR SPRING 2018 SCHEDULE

Sunday, Jan. 21 is the last day to ADD full-semester courses to your Spring 2018 schedule. Half-semester courses and other flexibly scheduled courses may have different registration deadlines.

Jan. 21 is also the last day to drop full-semester courses from your Spring 2018 schedule and receive a 100 percent tuition refund. While you may drop courses from your spring schedule until Jan. 28, you will only receive an 80 percent tuition refund/credit. Half-semester courses and other flexibly scheduled courses may have different registration deadlines.
