Fall / Spring Registration - Drop/Add

(See Academic Calendar for registration dates.)

New students or students returning after an absence of one or more semester should contact the Office of Admission and Enrollment Management for information on advising and registration.

Continuing students, to view your registration appointment, log into PeopleSoft self-service. Appointments are scheduled according to the total number of credits earned to date. This does NOT include credits in progress.

Schedule a meeting time with your advisor to obtain your advising PIN number.

For information about how to view your appointment or the on-line registration process, please check out the "Registration Guide".

Changes in your schedule can be made anytime after your initial registration has been completed. To find out more see Drop/Add.

Payment of Fees: Registration will not be permitted unless your account balance is zero. Bills are sent out monthly. If you register after the initial billing date or do not receive a bill it is your responsibility to get a copy of your bill from the Cashier's Office. Failure to receive a bill does not excuse students from payment deadlines. For further information, contact the Cashier's Office at 608-342-1211 or check their web site.


Academic Load - Undergraduate students enrolled in 12 or more credits during a semester are classified as full-time students; students enrolled in 6 through 11 credits are classified as half-time students and students enrolled in 1 through 5 credits are classified as less than half-time students. The normal load for full-time students is 16 credits per semester. Students on academic probation may carry no more than 14 credits without special permission.

Pass/Fail - Students who desire to take courses on a pass-fail basis must apply during the first week of class during a semester. Courses taken on a pass-fail basis cannot be used to fulfill general requirements or major/minor requirements. Students may enroll for only one course per semester on a pass-fail basis. Note: Some courses are offered only on a pass-fail basis and may fulfill graduation requirements.

Auditing Classes - Audit classes are counted as part of your total credit load. (Note: Audit classes DO NOT count as part of the total credit load for students receiving G.I. Bill educational entitlement from the Veterans Administration.) ATTENDANCE IS REQUIRED for an audit class. If a "satisfactory" grade is earned, the class WILL appear on the transcript. If the grade is "unsatisfactory," the class will NOT appear on the transcript.

Overloads - Registration for more than 18 credits (including audits, repeats, pass/fail, and P.E. activity classes) is considered an overload. If you wish to register for more than 18 credits the Registrar MUST approve an overload before you add additional credits. NOTE: There are additional costs above 18 credits. An overload permit card may be obtained from the Registrar's Office, Brigham Hall.

Class loads will be determined by the cumulative g.p.a. set forth as follows:

Academic Status by Cumulative Grade Point AverageUnits
Less than 2.00 (on academic probation)14
Less than 2.00 (in good standing)15
2.00-2.74 C.G.P.A.18
2.75-3.24 C.G.P.A.19
3.25-3.74 C.G.P.A.20
3.75-4.00 C.G.P.A.22

Students enrolled for an overload without permission will be required to drop sufficient classes/credits to comply with the prescribed load limit. If a student refuses to drop classes as prescribed, the Registrar and Vice-Chancellor will select the classes to be removed from the record.


Summer Registration - Drop / Add
