Freshmen normally preregister at designated times during the
spring or summer preceding their first enrollment. Returning
students normally preregister for the following semester during
pre-designated advising weeks. These students may adjust their
schedules before or at the start of each semester. Students are
responsible for planning their program of study and for fulfilling
graduation requirements in consultation with, and with the approval
of, their advisor.
Students must complete registration during the designated times.
Credit is not allowed for a course unless the student is properly
registered. Lindsey Wilson reserves the right to administratively
withdraw any student who has not attended a class during the first
five days of a fall or spring semester.
Incoming freshmen (0-23 hours of college credit) will be
contacted by a Freshman Advisor in the Academic Success Center to
discuss their initial advising needs. Students who have earned 24
or more hours of college credit will work with a faculty advisor as
discussed in the following paragraph.
The Registrars Office assigns a faculty or staff member as an
academic advisor to those students who have earned 24 or more hours
of college credit. When students select a major, they ordinarily
are assigned to an adviser in that field. Every student is
responsible for planning and managing his or her own academic
program. Students are required, however, to consult with their
academic advisor before registering for courses each semester.
Students registering electronically must obtain their PIN (personal
identification number) from their adviser. Students registering in
traditional paper mode must have their advisor sign their

a $30 late registration fee. Similarly, new and returning students
who do not complete registration confirmation by the first day of
classes are subject to the same fee.
Changes in Registration: Adding and/or Dropping a
Adding a course, dropping a course, or changing from one section
of a course to another section of the same course requires the
approval of the advisor and the instructor for each course involved
as indicated on the Add/Drop Form. The change must be reported to
the Business Office and the Registrar's Office on a Add/Drop Form,
which may be obtained from the Registrar's Office. Permission to
add courses will not be given after the last date for late
registration. Authorization for withdrawal from a course will not
be made later than 30 days before the end of a semester.
If changes are not properly approved and officially reported as
stated above, students will receive a grade of F in the courses for
which they are officially registered, and they will be charged for
all such courses. Students will not receive credit for changed or
added courses unless they officially register for grades on those
When withdrawal from a course is properly authorized and
submitted to the Registrar's Office, the course will appear on the
students record with a designation of W (withdrawn). No course
withdrawals are permitted during the last 30 class days of the
Students who wish to withdraw from a course must complete an
Add/Drop Form, including instructor and advisor signatures, and
submit it to the Registrar's Office. Failure to do so will result
in a grade of F for the course. Add/Drop Forms may be obtained from
the Registrar's Office or the academic advisor.
