Registration times for advance registration for the 2021 spring semester are assigned based on anticipated class after the completion of the fall 2020 semester (assuming successful completion of all courses for which students are enrolled):
Seniors90 or more hours (earned plus enrolled)
Juniors60-89 hours (earned plus enrolled)
Undergraduate students are required to meet with their advisors prior to registering for classes. Students who register in person must have their advisor’s approval in writing via the online form before Stars Connect will accept the registration form.
Auditing a class is an option if a student wants to sit in on a course but is not interested in earning credit. The student may be required to submit assignments and take examinations at the discretion of the instructor. Once the student has enrolled as an auditor in a course, no change in the registration to earn credit may be made. Individuals seeking to audit a course must secure the written permission of the instructor or department before registering.
Auditors may register from the first day of class (but not earlier) through the add deadline. No auditor may hold a place in the class if needed for a credit student. Auditing is not permitted in independent/directed study or other courses as designated by the appropriate school.
To register as an auditor, a student needs to complete a registration form, have it signed by the instructor no earlier than the first class meeting, and submit the signed form to the Stars Connect office before the add/drop deadline for the term.
Information on tuition and fees for auditing is available from Student Accounts.
While tuition charges will initially be applied to your account, the tuition charges will be manually adjusted after add/drop (see Academic Calendar for details).
The first time you attempt to register for a given term, you must first review the registration agreement (a copy of which appears below) and agree to the conditions before you can proceed with online registration.
ENROLLMENT AND WAITLISTS
I understand that I can register for no more than one section of a course. If I register in advance for more than one semester (e.g. summer and fall), this restriction applies across semesters (if registered in one section of ENGL 102 in summer semester, I may not also be registered for a section of ENGL 102 in the fall semester).
I also acknowledge that if I am waitlisted for more than one section of a course (as outlined above), I will be dropped from the waitlist(s) of all but the last (i.e. most recent) section for which I waitlisted.
I understand that it is my responsibility to monitor my Dominican email account for questions from the Office of the Registrar regarding my schedule and for information on whether I have been enrolled into a section from the waitlist.
If a course reaches capacity and allows waitlisting, students may elect to add themselves to the waitlist for no more than one section of each course:
The Office of the Registrar will monitor enrollment for students who are waitlisted for more than one section of a course; students will be dropped from the waitlist(s) of all but the last (i.e. most recent) section of a course if they are waitlisted for multiple sections.
As seats become available, students will be moved from the waitlist onto the class list in the order that they were added to the waitlist (unless an alternative priority is noted in the course listing). A student will be notified that he or she has been added to the class list through his or her Dominican email account.
Students who are on the waitlist for a class are not to attend that class. Only after students receive notice that they have been moved from the waitlist onto the class list are they able to start attending the class.
A student can review his or her position on the waitlist by following this link.
