Students should refer to the published class schedule to confirm payment due dates. Student registrations are subject to possible cancellation if the payment is not made in advance of the published payment due dates.
- In all cases, the responsibility for fee payment and confirming official registration is the individual student's. Students are not to attend class, participate in class activities or take exams unless they are officially registered. The College will not award a grade in a course for which a student was not officially registered. Students are encouraged to check the Lion's Den to verify registration status.

Late Enrollment and Closed Classes Procedures
Developmental classes (course numbers that start with 0, e.g., MATH 020, ENGL 060): If a class has met once, you may enroll prior to the second meeting without a signature from the department chair. If the class has met twice, you must have the permission of the department chair to enroll.
All other classes (course numbers start with 1 or 2, e.g., ENGL 111, PSYC 211): For most classes, you may enroll in an open section during the first week without approval signature from the department chair.
Once-a-week courses require the chairperson's signature in order to enroll after the 1st meeting.
ENGL 111/070 combination courses require a chair's signature after the 3rd meeting.
Late-start (12-week) or accelerated (7-week) courses require a chair's signature after the 1st meeting.
Students who enroll late must contact the instructor for a copy of the syllabus and any assignments in order to be prepared for the first day of attendance.
Closed Sections (All Classes)
If a section is closed, you should look for another section or talk to your academic advisor about an alternative. If there are no open sections, and you have a critical need to enroll, you should discuss with the department chair. Enrollment approval will require a signature or an email from the department chair.
