Registration for On-Campus Winter Term Courses

Registration for On-Campus Extended Studies courses for Winter Term 2018 begins April 25, 8:00 a.m. Students entering Fall 2017 may start registering on Aug. 21.

Winter Term 2018 On-Campus Course Offerings

Offerings for Winter Term 2018 are available from the Schedule of Classes (select WT 17-18 from the term menu). This registration is only for on-campus courses, not off-campus courses, internships and independent projects. On-campus courses will have an SOC# in the far left column of the listing. 

Course descriptions are available by clicking the link in the course number. Be sure to read the course description for fees, prerequisites and information about special permission to enroll.

Registration Process

Registration for on-campus Winter Term courses is by direct enrollment. Registration opens at 8:00 a.m., April 25. To add a Winter Term course to your Semester I schedule, you will use the course registration adjustment, not the request system.

To enroll in a course, you will need to have the SOC# from the schedule of classes. The first screen of the adjustment system has a list of terms which are currently active. Select the Winter Term 2018 Adjustment Menu. The system will allow you to add, drop and exchange on-campus Winter Term courses. 

You cannot use this system to add or drop off-campus, internship or independent courses. That must be done through the Hubbard Center. 

Special Permission

Some courses require special permission to enroll (S-P=ALL). Read the course description for instructions on obtaining special permission to enroll in the course and contact the instructor. Some S-P=ALL courses are enrolling students through lists kept by the instructor; others are using the SPAC system.

Course Load

Winter Term courses are part of your Semester I course load, along with your Fall Term courses. Your semester tuition covers up to 4.5 course credits. If your Winter Term enrollment puts you over the 4.5 credit maximum, you will be billed for a tuition overload ($1470.00 for a .25 credit overload, $2940 for a .5 credit overload). Some courses are exempted from the course load calculation. A full list of them, along with a more detailed description of the course load policy, can be found on the Extended Studies page.

Please note that courses you have withdrawn from still count in your semester course load. If you were enrolled in 4.25 course credits for the Fall Term, withdrew from a .25 credit course after the end of the add/drop period (first week of classes), and then added a .5 credit Extended Studies course, your course load for the semester would be 4.75. You would be charged for a .25 credit overload.


1. Review the list of offerings ahead of your registration window and have a list of courses with the SOC# ready when your registration window opens. 

2. Use the exchange feature to drop and add at the same time. If you enroll in a course then see an opening in another course you like better, you can do the swap. If the course you want happens to fill before your order gets processed, you will still be in the original course.

3. If you are interested in a course that is already full, keep checking the Schedule of Classes to see if anyone drops the course.  In addition, some faculty members keep wait-lists or provide Special Permission Access Codes (SPACs) to students who have a good reason for enrolling in a particular course.

4. Use this system for on-campus Winter Term courses only. You may not use it to add or drop an off-campus course, internship or independent project. For information on enrolling in these, contact the Hubbard Center.
