Adding, Dropping, Late Adds and Refund Schedules

Courses may be added or dropped using MavLINK ( during regular registration hours.

Adding a course to your schedule via MavLINK may be done up until the course starts, or through the 100 percent refund period. The start date for a course can be found by viewing the Class Listings. Adding a course after the 100 percent refund period ends is considered a Late Add, and requires permission from the instructor. If permission is granted to add the course late, the instructor will have a permit added to your schedule. It is the student's responsibility to then register for the course via MavLINK.

A $25 Late Registration Fee will be assessed to those students whose initial enrollment takes place after the start of the session. Exceptions to this include thesis, internship or independent study.

Dropping a course can be done via MavLINK up until the last day to withdraw, which may be found by viewing the Academic Calendar.  If you are currently enrolled, all Refund Schedules for each course are also available through MavLINK. Some courses, which do not follow the start and end dates for the term, are called course exceptions. The last day to withdraw for these courses are also available via MavLINK, or you may contact the Records & Registration Office either by phone at 402-554-2314 or by email at
