Registration and Course Information

A prepared registration form for each newly admitted student is sent directly to the student before the start of the fall and spring semesters. The associate dean for academic and student services provides new students with specific materials and instructions for course selection. Official registration and billing forms should be received by the student well before the first day of class. It is the responsibility of the student to remain in communication with the Office of Academic and Student Services. The registration forms must be submitted by the student to the Office of the Registrar and must be received at that location by the announced deadlines. (Overdue forms may require subsequent correspondence, entail additional fees, and necessitate reregistration.) Forms may be returned by mail, but allowances of up to 10 days have to be made for campus mail delivery; it is more prudent to deliver them by hand. Courses can be added in the first five days of the semester and dropped for the first 10 days. Students may confirm their schedules online at

Newly admitted students who have not received registration materials before the first day of classes should contact the Office of Academic and Student Services. Readmitted students should contact the Office of Academic and Student Services directly.

A student admitted into a degree program is expected to remain registered in every fall and spring semester thereafter until completing the program and earning the degree. Usually, a student registers for courses or research and, if necessary, may register for matriculation continued (leave of absence); a student who fails to maintain continuous registration may not resume formal graduate study or register again in the School of Criminal Justice without first applying through the Office of Academic and Student Services for readmission.
