How do I take a course at another college through the Consortium Cross Registration Program?

The Consortium Cross Registration is available to all FULL TIME DAY DIVISION students. Students can register for one day course per term at another college within the consortium. When you register for your courses ask for the information and form in the Registrar’s Office, room 152 in the Administration Building. 

What are Course Prerequisites?

A course prerequisite is a requirement the student must complete before beginning a course. Course prerequisites may be waived by assessment test results, or the instructor or an academic administrator. You will be withdrawn from a course if you have not met the required prerequisite. If you have successfully completed a prerequisite course at another college proof of such is required at time of registration. 

What is the Final Exam Period?

The final exam period is the final week of classes when day classes are assigned a two-hour block of time. Day classes are assigned a different meeting time during the final exam period. The Final Exam Period is published in the Course Schedule Booklet each term and it is posted in the Registrar’s Office. This period of time may be used for final exams, classroom instruction, or other types of evaluation as the instructor may choose. 

How do I withdraw from a course?

After the Add-Drop Period ends, the Withdrawal Period begins. If you would like to withdraw from a course after the Add-Drop Period the withdrawal process is as follows: 

  1. Obtain the Course Withdrawal Form from the Registrar’s Office, Room 152 in the Administration Building from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm; or the Advising Office, Room 61 Lower Level in the Administration Building from 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm; or after 7:00 pm in the Evening Administrator’s Office, Room 127 in the Surprenant Building.
