* Indicates transactions may be done online via Campus Connection until 11:59 p.m. All other transactions must be done in the respective office or at One Stop during business hours.

** SAP = Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP): At the end of each semester, academic performance is evaluated for the required completion of attempted credits, GPA, and degree completion within the maximum credits allowed.  SAP is monitored for all students and determines eligibility for future financial aid.

***Financial aid disbursement for students enrolled in 8-week courses only will begin after the 8 week session begins once aid requirements are met.

Short Courses: Deadlines for courses shorter than the standard session are prorated based on length of course and start/end states (see the Variable Length Session Drop/Add Deadlines section of the Academic Dates & Deadlines page).

Holds: Registration may be prevented by certain holds. Holds may be viewed on Campus Connection.

Students are responsible for registration activity, meeting deadlines and staying current with accounts. Check schedules and holds frequently and plan accordingly.
