 *Online WebAdvisor access to register to courses 100 level or above, meeting prerequisites and no prior professor consent required.
**Students may register until course begins.
***The financial aid census date records the number of credit hours taken by a student. Any courses that are added or dropped after the census date will not result in an adjustment to the financial aid award. Courses added after the census date could result in the student owing the college money. This means that students MUST review their schedules to ensure they are officially enrolled in each course they are attending. Students withdrawing from all course, or students who stop attending all courses, will receive a reduction in the original award amount even after the census date.
