Registration Forms & Downloads

Registration Form
The registration form is used to register for classes each semester if registration is done in-person. If registering online through the self-service Student Center, no registration form is necessary. Registration Forms are only accepted in-person with a picture-identification and must be signed. Registration forms will not be accepted or processed if received in the e-mail or fax. Registration forms submitted by a person other than the students themselves will not be accepted or processed, unless accompanied by a written and signed permission by the student.

Auditing a Course
Students who wish to audit a course must obtain permission from the Registrar’s Office. Students planning to audit a course are required to pay full tuition and fees, and the request must be made at the time of registration. Audit cannot be converted to a letter grade later.

Drop/Add/ Class-Withdrawal Form
Students who need to adjust their schedules due to a change in program or other reason(s) may do so during registration and the add/drop period. If adding/dropping or withdrawing online through the self-service Student Center, no form is necessary. The Drop/Add Form is also used to withdraw from a class during a semester until the withdrawal deadline date listed on the College Academic Calendar. Drop/Add/Class-Withdrawal forms will not be accepted or processed if received in the e-mail or fax. All forms must be submitted by students themselves with a picture-identification. Forms submitted by a person other than the students themselves will not be accepted or processed, unless accompanied by a written and signed permission by the student.


Regardless of attendance, a student who has not paid the course tuition and fees by the bill due date will be ineligible to enroll in the course, and should not be allowed to attend class and receive a grade.

Applications are accepted after the deadlines but students filing late applications may not be able to participate in Commencement exercises.

A student is required to fill out a Change of Major form when they decide to make a change in their career path. The form is required to be signed by an advisor. If the student wishes to enter a restricted Health program, the student must contact the Admissions Office to initiate a change.
