Registration information

Before you register

  • It is advisable to meet with your academic advisor to review your degree evaluation and scheduling options. Some classes may not be offered every semester.
  • Some courses have pre-requisites that must be completed successfully before you are able to participate in the class. Students are allowed conditional enrollment for such courses so long as the pre-requisite(s) are in process at the time of registration. The university reserves the right to automatically withdraw a student from a course if the pre-requisite(s) were not met. Pre-requisites are listed in the course syllabus and in the Academic Catalog.
  • 12 credits is considered full-time status for traditional undergraduate students. Students planning to graduate in four years need to average between 15 and 18 credits during both fall and spring semesters, or may take credits during the summer semester.
  • Per the undergraduate catalog, 18 credits is the maximum load you may carry. Students enrolling in more than 18 credits will be charged an overload tuition fee.

What if there's a hold on your account?

New and returning students must clear holds on their student record due to outstanding tuition payments, incomplete financial aid paperwork, incomplete health information, missing transcripts, or parking violations. Students with holds will not be permitted to move into student housing, make changes to class schedules, or register for coursework. Holds may be placed on your account at any time, so check periodically for holds.

Schedule additions

Students may make schedule changes up to the end of the ‘Add’ deadline for courses.

Course Length Deadline to Add
12-16 weeks Students may add a course up to the end of the 2nd week; however, instructor approval must be provided to the Registrar’s Office or the student’s Academic Advisor if a student wants to add a class in the 2nd week.
6-8 weeks Students may add a course up to the end of the 1st week. Instructor approval is not required.
< 6 weeks Students must be registered prior to the class start date. Once the course begins, enrollment is no longer available.

Academic Advisors may assist with scheduling changes during the ‘Add’ period of courses. After the ‘Add’ period, all schedule changes must be done through the Registrar’s Office.

Drop/withdrawal policy & deadlines

Drop vs withdraw

A class ‘Drop’ is a change in registration prior to a student attending or participating in a course. A class ‘Withdraw’ is a change in registration after a student has started attending or participating.

Depending on the course delivery, attendance is defined as seated time in the class (face-to-face courses), a gradable assignment submission (online courses), and/or time present for live video conferencing with the instructor (virtual courses).

Student-initiated withdraw from a course

After starting to participate in a class, a student may request to withdraw up to the withdraw deadline for the term (see chart below). Students should not assume the university will withdraw them for non-payment of fees or for non-attendance. In the event of a withdraw, the student’s transcript will reflect a withdraw (‘W’) for the course. The ‘W’ is not a grade and will not affect the student’s overall GPA. A student participating in a course past the withdrawal deadline is not eligible for a withdrawal and will be assessed a final grade.

Course Length Deadline to receive a ‘W'
16 weeks End of the 10th week
12 weeks End of the 8th week
8 weeks End of the 5th week
6 weeks End of the 4th week
4 weeks End of the 3rd week
3 weeks End of the 2nd week

Note: The timing of when a student withdraws has both academic and financial implications. Students who withdraw from a course may not re-enroll in the same course section during the same term or semester. Students should meet with their academic advisor and financial aid counselor prior to making changes as withdrawing from a course may have ramifications for student status, financial aid eligibility, athletic eligibility, or program progression. Please see the Tuition & Fees page for details regarding the potential academic and financial implications of withdrawing from a course.

Visit the Registrar’s Office for assistance withdrawing from courses.

Instructor-initiated withdraw from a course

The University reserves the right to administratively withdraw a student from a course for one of the following reasons:

  • Failure to begin the course in the allotted time frame
  • Failure to comply with attendance policies (i.e. excessive absence)
  • Disciplinary reasons (i.e. academic dishonesty)

Students administratively withdrawn from a course for failure to begin or excessive absence may not re-enroll in the same course section during the same term or semester. The student is responsible for any academic, financial, or athletic consequences that may result. Please see the Tuition & Fees page for details regarding the potential academic and financial implications of being administratively withdrawn from a course.

Deadlines

Registration deadlines are strictly enforced. It is a Concordia policy that students may not petition because of missed deadlines. Please check the academic calendar for add/withdraw deadlines. If you are unable to make schedule changes on your own, please contact the Registrar’s Office for any necessary forms.

Withdrawal from the university

Students who wish to cease coursework and withdraw completely from the University must notify their academic advisor and financial aid counselor prior to making changes as withdrawing from the institution may have implications for student status, financial aid, and future athletic eligibility or program progression.

If active in coursework at the time of the withdraw, the student will be removed from all coursework and last date of attendance will be used to determine course grades and financial responsibility following the university’s tuition refund policies. Prior to a withdraw being fully processed, any outstanding balance must be paid in full. Should a student wish to return to his/her program at a later time, he/she must reapply for University admission.

Students who are inactive from coursework for two consecutive semesters, and who have not notified the University of their intention to take a stop out, will be withdrawn from the University for inactivity. Students will be required to reapply to the University if they wish to resume coursework.

Medical withdrawal

Students who are seriously injured/ill and cannot continue in coursework due to medical necessity may be eligible for a medical withdrawal. Students must contact their academic advisor to request a withdrawal and discuss the extenuating circumstances. Medical documentation must be provided within 30 days of the student’s notification of withdrawal. Medical documentation will be reviewed by the Academic Office.

If a medical withdrawal is authorized, the last date of attendance will be used to determine financial responsibility following the university’s tuition refund policies. The student will receive a “W” in all active courses. If a medical withdrawal is not authorized, tuition, room and board responsibility and a grade for courses will follow the university’s tuition refund policies. Prior to returning following a medical withdrawal, students must reapply to the University and complete a Health and Wellness Meeting. Students will not be authorized for a medical withdrawal more than once during their enrollment at Concordia.

Temporary stop out from the university

Students who wish to temporarily cease coursework, but plan to register in the future, may request a temporary stop out for up to two semesters after the conclusion of a term. Students must contact their academic advisor and financial aid counselor prior to requesting a stop out, as stopping out of coursework may have implications for student status, financial aid eligibility, athletic eligibility, or program progression.

Prior to returning to coursework, the student may be required to reapply to his/her program. Students who do not return to the University within two consecutive semesters must reapply to the University. Students required to reapply will be subject to the program requirements and policies under the current academic catalog.
