Credit Card Authorization Form


Registration is currently open for January 2017 and Spring/Summer 2017. The on-time registration deadline for J-Term courses (listed in Henry under Fall Semester 2016-17) is Friday, December 9, after which a $60 late registration fee will be assessed for all initial J-Term registrations. The on-time registration deadline for the Spring Semester is Friday, January 13, and for courses of the Summer Term (listed in Henry under the Spring Semester) Friday, May 12. However, if your Spring financial aid/student loan is contingent upon your Summer course(s), they must be registered no later than the Spring late registration deadline (February 15). Click on the link below for “Registration and Course Information.” See the “Course Schedules” and “Intensive Course Prospecti” below for more information about courses available.

Registration changes

Students who have already registered for a term but need to change their registrations may do so anytime prior to the late registration (drop/add) deadline for the term (two weeks prior to the first day of class for any short-term courses).  Courses may be added without penalty; a $30 cancellation fee will be assessed for dropping a course without adding another in its place.  Changes may be made online via Henry, via an email to the Registrar, or by submitting a Change of Registration form.

Dropping a course after the drop/add deadline is subject to the rules governing withdrawal.  If you need to withdraw from a course, you must submit notification in writing to the Registrar not later than the midpoint of the semester or by Friday of any intensive course; any refunds for which you are eligible will be based upon the date of receipt by the Registrar of your written notification.  If you simply fail to attend or stop attending any course for which you are registered, the consequences will be your receiving a failing grade and being responsible for all course fees. In extreme circumstances (e.g., lengthy hospitalization), you may petition the Dean in writing for a late withdrawal to avoid receiving a failing grade; however, there can be no refund of any tuition or fees.
