Undergraduate: Scheduling Classes

Enrollment Appointments

Enrollment appointments are set by the Office of the University Registrar early in the semester for the following semester’s scheduling. You will find your enrollment appointment information in your student center. It is important to schedule your courses when your appointment begins. If you wait, classes will fill up.

Scheduling may be prevented for the following reasons:

  • hold on your account
  • Financial Responsibility Statement
  • GPA is below a 2.0.

You can find details on how to complete your Financial Responsibility Statement here.If your GPA is below a 2.0, you must schedule an appointment with an academic advisor. Contact us via the web or call 614.292.2265 if you are unsure why you cannot schedule classes.

Adding Classes

You may add classes to your schedule using on-line registration from the time your enrollment appointment begins through the first Friday of the semester. If you attempt to enroll in a course and receive an error message, it could be for one of the following reasons:

  • the course requires permission
  • you do not meet prerequisite requirements
  • there is a time conflict with another course
  • the course will put you over 18 credit hours
  • you need to override a course waitlist.

You will not be able to enroll yourself in a course if you receive an error message. Instead, you must complete a Course Enrollment Permission form. Submit the form to 210 Kottman Hall and you will be manually added to the course by a staff member. 

If a course is full and you put yourself on the waitlist and a seat becomes available, you will only be added if that time is still available in your schedule. You will also not be added if enrollment in the waitlisted course puts you over 18 hours. The waitlist only functions through the first Friday of the semester, after that it shuts down and will no longer add students. The waitlist still appears after the first Friday, however it is no longer functioning. If you have not been added to the course by the first Friday, you will need to be proactive and contact the instructor to secure a seat in the class.

Reminder on Credit Hours – 12 credit hours is full-time, you may schedule up to 18 credit hours, anything over 18 hours requires permission from an academic advisor and will incur additional fees.

Dropping Classes

You may drop classes from your schedule using on-line registration from the time your enrollment appointment begins through the fourth Friday of the semester. After the fourth Friday, you must come to 210 Kottman to complete a change ticket form in order to drop a course. After the fourth Friday, you will receive a 'W' on your transcript indicating you withdrew from the course. The last day to drop a course is the 10th Friday of the semester. No course may be dropped after that date unless there are serious extenuating circumstances (such as hospitalization).
