Basic Registration Steps

Once you register for courses, you are academically and financially responsible for your courses, whether or not you attend courses.  You can drop all you courses prior to the first day of the semester without penalty.  Once courses start, there are published deadlines to add, drop, or withdraw from class with varying refund rates and grade options.
