Undergraduate students are required to meet with their advisors prior to registering for classes. Students who register in person must have their advisor’s signature before the Office of the Registrar 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 Office of the Registrar before the add/drop deadline for the term.

Information on audit fees is available from Student Accounts.

Withdrawal from class must be done formally through the Office of the Registrar. Failure to attend classes or merely giving notice to the instructor will not be regarded as an official notice of withdrawal. Forms are available in Lewis 115 or on the registrar's website; if you cannot come in to complete a form, written notice (submitted through the mail or via fax) will be accepted.
 
A student withdrawing from a class may be liable for part or all of the tuition depending on the date of withdrawal. Click here to review the current refund schedule.
 
Undergraduate students who do not attend any classes through the first ten class days of a fall or spring semester, who fail to withdraw from those classes, and who fail to respond to messages from the university, may be withdrawn from the semester by the Office of the Registrar: students will receive grades of WU: Unofficial Withdrawal on their transcripts for the semester, they will be liable for 20% of tuition for the courses from which they were withdrawn, and they will not be able to register for future semesters until they successfully petition their dean for reinstatement.

Registration Agreement

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.

TERMS
  • Payment of tuition and other fees becomes your obligation as soon as you register for classes. This obligation remains until the debt is paid in full or until you officially withdraw from the college within the refund period.
  • Nonpayment of tuition and fees and nonattendance of classes does not constitute official withdrawals from Dominican University. Withdrawal from Dominican University can only be accomplished by filing a complete Drop/Add/Withdrawal Form in the Office of the Registrar.
  • All financial obligations are due in full by the first day of your class. If you are unable to pay in full, arrangements must be made with the Student Accounts Office. 
  • If you leave Dominican University with an unpaid balance, you may also be responsible for reasonable legal and collection fees.
  • Undergraduate students registered for 12 or more hours are required to document their health insurance; those who do not will be enrolled in and charged for Dominican University's Student Health Insurance Plan. If you have existing health insurance coverage, medicaid, county care, or another plan for paying your medical expenses, you must complete the Waiver Form. Existing coverage will be verified.

Waitlists

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:
  • It is allowable to be enrolled in only one section of a course and on the waitlist for no more than one other section
    (for students who register in advance for more than one semester, this restriction applies across all semesters)
  • For LAS seminars, this rule applies to the entire level (e.g. a student can register for one 200-level seminar and waitlist for no more than one other 200-level seminar)
  • For cross-listed courses, this restriction includes any other section that is in a cross-listed relationship with the waitlisted course section (e.g. a student who is on the waitlist for SOC 110 at 9:30am MWF cannot also waitlist for AMST 110 at 1:00pm TR because AMST 110 is cross-listed with SOC 110)
  • This restriction does not apply to variable topics courses – different courses that use the same numbers – that are designated as such in the course description

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 for which they waitlisted.

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. A student will be notified that he or she has been added to the class list through his or her Dominican email account.

A student can review his or her position on the waitlist by following this link.
