Change of Registration
Students Changing Registration
Students may continue to register and add classes to their schedule through the first week of the term. After the first week of the term, students cannot add classes via SISWeb. To register late, students will need to submit a request to Raider Student Services with the appropriate approvals. Second week of the term, the instructor of record must approve students adding. Third week of the term, both the instructor of record and the Chair or Program Coordinator must approve students adding. Fourth week and later, the instructor of record, Chair or Program Coordinator, and Division Director must approve students adding.
Students may drop classes via SISWeb through the fourth week of the term. From the fifth week of the quarter through the Friday of the 9th week of the term, students may withdraw from one or more classes. Students withdrawing after the end of the fourth week and through Monday of the last week of classes receive a WD (Withdrawn) in each of their withdrawn courses. Students are unable to completely withdraw (drop their final course for a given term) on their own and will need to complete a withdrawal survey form.
Registration is blocked for any student who has completed 91 credits and does not have a declared major on file in Raider Student Services. Please contact an advisor to declare a major.
Instructors Changing Registration
Instructors may cancel the course registration of a student when there is justification, provided the instructor’s department chair or school dean 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 dean.
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
Students in good standing are entitled to honorable dismissal at any time through Monday of the last week of classes. Students withdrawing after the end of the fourth week and through Monday of the last week of classes receive a WD (Withdrawn) in each of their withdrawn courses. Students are unable to completely withdraw (drop their final course for a given term) on their own and will need to complete a withdrawal survey form.. The effective date of withdrawal is the date the withdrawal form is submitted to Raider Student Services. Refund dates are indicated in the published Academic Calendar.
