Upon acceptance, the Admissions Office will inform each student that they are permitted to register. New and returning students should register before the beginning of each term and get pre-registration consultation on specifically announced days. The Registrar consulting with Deans, Program directors, and/or Provost must approve the appropriate courses for each student’s program. A student may not attend classes unless registered. A student’s registration is finalized in the accounting office by the payment of the full tuition or arrangement and signing of a deferred payment plan.

Change in Registration

The student’s choice of courses, once selected and filed, is expected to be permanent for the term. However, students may change the term schedule before the last date when classes can be added/dropped without penalty as indicated in the academic calendar. Courses added later must be approved by the instructor and the Provost or President before the Registrar makes registration changes.

Withdrawal from the University

Students withdrawing from the university should submit a withdrawal form to the Admissions and Records Office. Refunds to withdrawing students are made in accordance with the refund policy stated in the University Catalog.

Full-Time Enrollment

Undergraduate students taking at least 24 units per year or graduate students taking at least 18 units per year are considered full-time.

For financial aid and immigration purposes, a student is considered to be full-time in a term if he or she is registered in:

  1. At least 12 units for undergraduate or 9 units for graduate students in a regular semester;
  2. At least 6 units for undergraduate and graduate students during a Summer session;
  3. Any number of units in the final term of a program; including internships/externships, project, thesis, and dissertation courses taken after all other academic requirements of a program are satisfied.

Cohort Program Registration

During the cohort track program admission process, students select a preferred module start date from available options. Once admitted, students are pre-registered for the indicated module. The registration is completed with the payment of module tuition no later than one week before the module start date.

The following is the process of module registration:

  1. Students are informed about the module start date as soon as the schedule becomes available.
  2. Student must complete tuition payment for a module one week before the start date.
  3. Students will receive course access information three days before the start of the instruction.
