Please review your student schedule prior to attending your first course. Course locations and meeting times can change from the time you have registered for the course. Pay attention especially to start and end dates of the course. If the course dates are not the start and end dates of the term, the course is a condensed course and has different attendance, registration, drop, and refund dates.
Full-term dates are as follows:
Fall 2017: August 23, 2017 - December 12, 2017
Winter Intersession 2017: December 18, 2017 - January 5, 2018
Spring 2018: January 16, 2018 - May 8, 2018
Federal regulations for financial aid require attendance (physical attendance, submission of an assignment, OR completion of the Blackboard Attendance Accounting module) in all registered courses; if you fail to attend prior to the attendance date for a course, you will be dropped for non-attendance. There is no reinstatement when dropped for non-attendance; there are no exceptions to this policy.
Early Registration is for currently enrolled students based on the number of credit hours earned prior to the start of the current semester. Students must consult with their advisor before registering for classes. An appointment schedule will be posted on/near the advisor's office door.
