*Signature from the Dean of the student's college also required after the last day to add In-Person. 

Course registrations after the end of the on-line add period through the 15th day of the term (prorated for summer) will require signatures of the course instructor.  Course registrations after the 15th day will require signatures of both the course instructor and the Dean or Designee of the student's college.

Registration Refund Periods
Information regarding tuition due dates and late fees can be found on the Treasurer's Office website.

Audit Grade Option  The notation AU appears on the student's record when he or she enrolls in a course for audit.  AU is not a grade and no credit is granted.  An auditor is not required to complete assignments or tests, nor is the instructor required to grade any of the student's work in the course.  Audits can not be declared online.  Students must complete a course request form, specifically requesting the grade mode be changed from a letter grade to an audit.  The course request form must be submitted to Rocket Solution Central by the 15th calendar day of the term to declare this option. A student auditing a course pays the same as for a course being taken for credit.  Financial Aid does not pay for audited courses.

Pass/No Credit Option Students may elect to enroll in certain undergraduate courses for Pass/No Credit rather than an A-F grade. Students must complete this petition to take a class Pass/No Credit and obtain the approval of their college before the end of the 15th calendar day of the term* (prorated for summer and flex sessions).

  • Grades of C or better will be changed to PS
  • Grades of C-, D+, D, D– and F will be changed to NC.
  • The grades of PS and NC do not affect the grade point average.
  • Students should consult their college/department regarding any limitations that may exist for this option.
  • Honors College courses, including Honors contracts, may not be taken as Pass/No Credit.
  • Undecided students, as a general rule, should not elect Pass/No Credit grading.
  • Once the petition has been approved by the college, the student cannot rescind his/her petition.

 *For the Fall 2020 semester, the deadline to declare Pass/No Credit has been extended to October 16, 2020.

Additional Parts of Term exist that are applicable to specific programs.  

EMBA students should refer to the program's web site (click here).  
Medical students should refer to the schedules listed on the MD curriculum pages on MD web site (click here).
