Current Traditional Undergraduate Students

Fall 2014 Registration

Fall 2014 registration is now open to all programs. Please register at your earliest convenience through WebAdvisor. 

Spring 2015 Registration

The course schedule for Spring 2015 is currently available on WedAdvisor. Registration will begin Monday, October 27, 2014. The registration schedule for Spring 2015 traditional undergraduate students will also be posted in early October 2014.

The registration schedule for traditional undergraduate students is based on cumulative credits earned. Students will be notified of their registration time through their North Park email.  

How to Register

You can search for current course offerings in WebAdvisor as part of the registration process. Before registering for your next semester of classes, you should meet with your faculty advisor to plan your schedule based on course offerings.

All registration takes place through WebAdvisor, but if you need assistance with a registration request, you may add or drop a course by filling out a Drop/Add form.  Changes can be made at any time before the end of the first week of class at no charge. There will be a $15 charge for any class added after the first week of the term.

In order to process your request, the form must include your name, ID number, term, type of change (add or drop), and all pertinent course information (department, course number, section, title, number of credits, and instructor).

New North Park students cannot register themselves for their first semester of classes. Please refer to the Newly Admitted Students registration information for details on how to register for classes.

Course Additions

Course additions may be made before the beginning of each term and through the first week of class. Admission into full semester classes will not be permitted after the first week of the term. Admission into quad A and quad B classes will not be permitted after the first week of the class. A late registration and/or a change in registration fee may be assessed according to the fee schedule published separately. Attendance in class without registration for the course will not be permitted. No credit will be granted if the student has not registered for the class at the appropriate time.

Course Drops

Course drops may be made before the beginning of each term and through the first week of class. After the first week of class, students must submit an instructor-signed drop form to withdraw from a course. Drop from a course will count from the date that formal written notice has been filed with the Office of Student Administrative Services. Mere absence from class or notice to the instructor does not constitute a drop. A grade of "DW" (dropped without permission) will be assigned to unauthorized drops and a grade point of zero applied.

Students may drop a course based on the table below.

Add/Drop Guidelines:

  • If a course is closed you must obtain the signature of the instructor of the course before returning the form to the Office of Student Administrative Services.
  • If you have not met a prerequisite you will need to obtain the signature of the instructor or your faculty advisor before returning the form to the Office of Student Administrative Services.
  • If you are a traditional undergraduate and plan to take over 20 semester hours, you must also complete an Overload Application
  • You may not add a course after the first week of the class without permission from the instructor. 
  • You may drop a class without academic penalty through the fourth week of class. Classes dropped during this time will not appear on your transcript. 
  • Beginning the fifth week of classes, you will be assigned a grade of "W" (withdrawn), and the class will be listed on your transcript. A "W" is not calculated into a student's grade-point average (GPA). 

The last day to drop course with a grade of "W" depends on the length of the term

Term Length

Course Length Drop without an Assigned Grade Drop with an Assigned Grade of "W"
16 weeks End of 4th week 5th-12th week
7 1/2 weeks End of 4th week 5th-6th week
9 weeks (summer term) End of 4th week 5th-7th week
4 1/2 weeks (summer term) End of 2nd week End of 3rd week
3 weeks (May mini-term) End of 1st week End of 2nd week
 

After these dates, students will be assigned grades that are used in the calculation of their GPA.

If you decide to stop attending a course, you must formally withdraw from the course by completing a Drop/Add form.

Keep in mind that most student loan agencies and scholarships require you to be a full-time student. Contact the Office of Financial Aid with questions regarding your financial aid status.
