Misuse of the Registration System

It is misuse of the registration system for a student to (1) register for a class or multiple sections of a class with the intent to “save” the class for another student; or (2) register for multiple sections of the same class with the intent to decide at a later date which section to attend. Students who misuse the registration system will be subject to reduced registration privileges, ranging from the loss of the right to advance register to the deletion of registered courses. Multiple registrations for the same class will be deleted. The student is also subject to possible disciplinary action taken by the university.  The student who adds a “saved” class will also be subject to the actions listed above.

Unauthorized use of the registration system may result in criminal prosecution. A student who tampers or attempts to tamper with the registration of another student may be subject to disciplinary action and/or criminal prosecution.


If you register for a class(es) and stop attending without officially dropping or withdrawing, you will be held responsible for payment and receive your earned grade for the class(es).
