Schedule Changes


Adding a Course

A course may be added by a student using the online registration system (JagWire) without approval of university officials, as long as departmental approval is not required. It is highly recommended that a student consult with his/her academic advisor before attempting to add a course. After the online registration system is closed, written permission is required from the academic advisor and professor of the course being added to add the course. These requests must be processed by the Welcome Center, Main Campus, Room 106. The student may only add classes during the time specified in the official academic calendar.

It is the student's responsibility to make-up any missing assignments for any courses added after the start of the first day of class. Payment must be made for any additional courses added in order to avoid being dropped from the class.

Financial Aid recipients who process late course additions are encouraged to contact the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid as this could impact financial aid awards.


Dropping a Course

A course may be dropped by a student without approval from his/her academic advisor or other university official during the dates noted on the Academic Calendar. Students who have been readmitted on academic/scholastic probation must also consult with their advisors prior to dropping or withdrawing. It is highly recommended that a student consult with the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid, Student Business Services, Veteran's Affairs Certification Office (if applicable), and International Student Services Office (if applicable) as this may affect any financial awards and/or obligations.

Failure to attend classes does not constitute proper notification of a drop and the student will continue to be responsible for the course or courses (academically and financially) on the student's schedule. A student will receive a refund only if the drop/withdrawal occurs prior to or during the percentage refund dates for the semester. Please review the Refund Policy on our website.

Senate Bill 1231, passed during the 80th Texas Legislative Session, limits the number of drops that certain undergraduate students may accrue without a punitive grade. Please see the current catalog for more information. (Catalogs)


Withdrawing from the University

Once the student has registered for classes, the student will remain registered unless he/she has taken action to cancel the registration. If a student drops the only course for which the student is enrolled, the student must follow the process for withdrawing from the university. Please see the current catalog for more information.

Failure to attend classes does not constitute proper notification of withdrawal from the University and you will continue to be responsible for the course or courses (academically and financially) on your schedule. A student will receive a refund only if the drop/withdrawal occurs prior to or during the percentage refund dates for the semester. Please review the Refund Policy on our website.

Processing of withdrawals from the University must be completed in the Welcome Center, Main Campus, Room 106. The student will be required to meet with the Student Business Services and the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid as well.


Reinstatement

Students who were dropped from courses for non-payment and wish to be reinstated must be aware that there is a $363.00 reinstatement fee in addition to the required Tuition and Fees. The $363.00 must be paid to the Student Business Services prior to reinstatement in the requested courses. Tuition and Fees must be paid on the same day that the reinstatement occurs. If Tuition and Fees are not paid, the student will be dropped from the courses and will be financially responsible for the full amount of Tuition and Fees.

Processing of reinstatements must be completed in the Welcome Center, Main Campus, Room 106. The student will be required to meet with the Student Business Services and the Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid as well.
