Exceptions to "No Late Registration"
The new Course Registration & Course Withdrawal Policy creates a number of exceptions that will allow some students to register for a course during the first week. Any exceptions must be approved by the appropriate instructor(s) and the department chair.
Exceptions are limited to:
Auditing a Class
If you wish to enroll in a class for no credit, you may register as an auditor. An auditor pays regular fees and at the discretion of the instructor may be asked to meet all class requirements. If you audit, you do not receive a grade or credit for the course.
Dropping a Class
You may use MyCSN to drop classes, please refer to the Catalog/Schedule/Calendar web page for all registration deadlines. Short-term and intensive classes must be dropped before the published last day of the class. Unless the class is officially dropped, you are responsible for the fees and the instructor may assign a failing grade. It is important that you verify the accuracy of your enrollment schedule and fees due anytime a change is made. For more information see the tuition refund policy.
Withdrawing from a Class
Students have the responsibility for withdrawals. With some administrative exceptions, students must initiate course withdrawals. This creates consistency for students across CSN programs, and reflects the new NSHE completion agenda.
If you drop a class, the amount of tuition refunded is based on dates of the semester for full-term classes and the number of times the class has met for summer and intensive classes. Refunds are not based on the attendance of a particular student. For more information see the tuition refund policy. Students seeking a refund may begin the process by filling out the Student Appeals Petition Request and returning the form to the Office of the Registrar with the required documentation.
