After registering for classes, you may need to make changes in one of these ways:

CHANGE VARIABLE CREDITS

Some classes are set up as variable credits, which means students can choose how many credits they would like to take.

To change the number of credits for such a course:

  • Go to Banner > Student Menu > Class Registration and Planning > Register for Classes.
  • Select the academic quarter for which you are registering and click Continue.
  • Choose the Schedule and Options tab at the top of the page.
  • This will bring up your registered courses. Under the “Credit Hours” column, courses with variable credit will have the credit number underlined when you hover over the credits.
  • Click on the credits to enter the desired number of new credits and press enter.
  • Click Submit to save your changes at the bottom right of the page.
  • Return to your course summary to verify that your credit change saved to your registration.

DROP A CLASS

During the first week of the quarter, students can drop a class through Banner, and the course will not appear on the transcript. Here’s how:

  • Go to Banner > Student Menu > Class Registration and Planning > Register for Classes.
  • Select the academic quarter for which you are registering and click Continue.
  • In the lower right-hand box, find the course you would like to drop. There will be a drop-down menu next to the course, select Drop via Web and click Submit.

In the second week of the quarter, students can still withdraw from classes online. However the course(s) will appear with a “W” on the transcript. A “W” does not affect GPA.

After the second week of the quarter and through the seventh week, undergraduate students must submit UG Course Drop (Week 3-7) through their Banner account in order to withdraw from a class. Graduate and Doctoral students must submit GRDR Course Drop (Week 3-7) through their Banner account. Both forms can be accessed using the instructions below. The course will appear on the transcript with a “W” grade. 

  • Go to Banner > Student Menu > Registration and Class Schedules Menu > UG Course Drop (Week 3-7), GRDR Course Drop (Week 3-7).

ORDER BOOKS

To find what books your course requires, and to order them through Banner after registering:

  • Go to Banner > Student Menu > Registration and Class Schedules Menu > Purchase Books Online.


*IMPORTANT COURSE DROP POLICIES

Students are able to drop classes online through the 10th day of the quarter. Withdrawal from a course between weeks two and seven of the quarter will be noted with a "W" (withdrawal) on the transcript. The final deadline for withdrawing from courses is the eighth week of the quarter.  

Specific dates for these registration deadlines are listed in the University Academic Calendar. Students who are receiving financial assistance are encouraged to speak to a Student Financial Services representative before making a change in course load.

A primary function of the Registrar's Office is to uphold academic integrity by ensuring that records of a student's course registration, course completion, and grades are accurate and comprehensive. Therefore, academic history data are not subject to erasure by request under the European Union General Data Protection Regulations or any other regulation.


For registration questions, contact the Office of the Registrar in Demaray Hall 151.
