Registration Information & Procedures for Graduate Courses
For off-campus, Summer, Early Fall, Early Spring, Spring Break, “2-2-2” or “3-3” classes, students should register at least three weeks prior to the first class session. This becomes important when class viability is determined; also, assignments are often required on the first day of these time-intensive classes.
Students incur a financial obligation upon registering for classes. This financial obligation can only be adjusted if a student adds/drops hours or officially withdraws from the school in accordance with established policies and regulations.
The student who enrolls after the semester begins will be held responsible for work missed, with the absences counting toward the attendance standard. Classes cannot be added for credit after the first week of the semester.
A faculty advisor and Enrollment Services assist in arranging each student’s class schedule. After completing the registration process, including payment, the student will receive an ID card for gaining admission to school activities, for use in the cafeteria and the library, and for other identification purposes.
The number of semester hours a student takes will be limited by his or her enrollment status, capabilities and outside activities. No one may enroll for more than eighteen hours without the written permission of their academic advisor and Enrollment Services.
A senior whose degree requirements are assured may enroll in a graduate course with the permission of the Academic Deans of CCU.
Changes in Schedule
After the first three weeks of a semester, the instructor must sign the Change in Schedule Form before it will be accepted in Enrollment Services. Changes in schedule become official on the date the form is received by Enrollment Services.
Students may not enroll in classes for credit after the first week of a semester. A student is not permitted to withdraw or change to the status of auditor during the last four weeks of the semester.
In order to withdraw from all classes simultaneously, a student must complete a Withdrawal Form available from Enrollment Services. This form will require the student to notify (in person) Enrollment Services, Academic Support, and Student Life office. Failure to officially withdraw will result in a failing grade for each course.
The refund schedule may be adjusted to meet requirements for refunds of federal and state student financial aid programs. Students should consult Enrollment Services for further details.
After the first day of the semester. there is no refund of tuition or fees for performing groups, applied music instruction or audited courses.
During the refund period (first three weeks of the semester), there is a fee to withdraw from courses.
Failure to attend class(es) is not sufficient notice to qualify for a refund and will result in the grade of “FA” (failure due to absences) in the course(s).
