Schedule changes for students receiving veteran benefits, may cause a debt that the student will owe to the Department of Veterans Affairs. For further information, please contact the Registrar's Office.


Waitlists will become available at the beginning of the registration period as classes fill. If a class with a waitlist option is full when a student attempts to register for it, they will be given the option to add themselves to the waitlist and wait for an email notification that a seat has become available. Being on a wait list does not guarantee enrollment, but can improve a student’s chance of enrollment if another student drops the class.
