Registration for Classes

There are four registration periods for the fall, spring, summer, and winter sessions.

Open Registration

For students unable to register early and for students who may need to adjust their schedules.

Late Registration

Held during the first week of classes (special schedule for summer and winter) and to allow students to make section and class changes.

Adding Courses

Students may add courses during the first two weeks of the term by submitting a completed add/drop card to the Office of the Registrar. The signatures of both the academic dean and instructor of the class being added are required during the second week of the term.
Week 1, no approval required.
Week 2, approval of academic dean and instructor.
Week 3-10, not permitted.

Dropping Courses

Students may withdraw from courses by submitting an add/drop card to the Office of the Registrar. The time period in which a student withdraws from a course determines the recording of the course on the student’s transcript. The following guidelines apply to the ten week fall and spring term only. Accelerated term and summer term refund schedules are calculated based upon a modified schedule.
Week 1-2, no grade recorded on academic record
Week 3-6, W grade recorded on academic record
Week 7-10, no withdrawals are allowed


Exceptions to the preceding regulations for registration, schedule revision, and cancellation of assignment may be made for courses that do not span the regular term, summer or winter session

Grade Requirements

In order to maintain academic standing as a graduate student, all graduate students must maintain at least a 3.0 grade point average (GPA) in graduate courses. Any course with a B- or lower earned grade must be retaken until a B or higher grade is earned. Similarly, the grade of N (no pass) is not accepted for graduate credit and those courses must be retaken until a P (pass) is earned. A GPA below 3.00 at any time during a graduate student’s studies or the accumulation of more than 5 credits of N or F grades – regardless of the GPA – is considered unsatisfactory. The Academic Dean may drop the student from the Graduate School, thus terminating the students’ degree program.


Grades are based on the progress in achieving course goals and is reported as a letter grade based on the grading system adopted by Daybreak University:
