Change of Registration
Students Changing Registration
Information about dates for priority preregistration, open registration and schedule adjustment, late registration, advising services, adding/dropping, and course offerings is available online here.
Instructors Changing Registration
Instructors may cancel the course registration of a student when there is justification, provided the instructor’s department chair or school director concurs. This includes the right of an instructor to cancel the course registration of a student for disciplinary reasons at any time, again with the concurrence of the instructor’s department chair or school director.
Priority Registration Policy
Accelerated Baccalaureate students, currently eligible students with an accommodation approved through the Disability Resources office as necessary to comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act, Study Abroad and National Student Exchange students, ROTC students, and veterans certified for educational benefits are eligible to register the first day of registration for a given term. NAIA-eligible student athletes, dual-enrolled OHSU students, Success at Southern students, and Honors College students are eligible to register one week thereafter, unless they are otherwise eligible for earlier registration. Individual programs are responsible for maintenance/coding of associated student records. No other student populations are eligible for priority registration. This policy applies to continuing students only (new and non-admitted students are not eligible for priority registration). Temporary exceptions to this policy may be granted by the Enrollment Council.
Withdrawal from the University
Dates and deadlines for withdrawal (from either an individual course or entirely) are posted in the Academic Calendar. Please note that SOU has multiple parts of term and that certain academic programs have inherent rules that impact their associated dates - these are noted in the Academic Calendar.
