Registration Guide for Students
When do I Drop or Withdraw from Courses?
Enrolled students may adjust their schedules by dropping and/or adding classes. Students must add or drop before the 50% or 100% refund deadline. It is the student's responsibility to follow proper withdrawal procedures in the event he or she does not attend a class. Failure to attend class does not constitute a drop/withdrawal. Students who do not officially withdraw or drop their classes will be assessed full tuition and fees. Students who reduce their course load after the drop deadline will receive a "W" notation for each course they have dropped. Please review your drop and withdrawal dates on the academic calendar. These dates are the same for both undergraduate and graduate students.
For your drop/refund or Withdrawal dates logon to your STUDENT HUB account and look at your Student Detail Schedule.
If you are an undergraduate student, complete the College Opportunity Fund (COF) application form with College Assist. Resident students may qualify for a COF stipend which may pay a portion of their in-state tuition. You need to "authorize" the COF stipend each semester when you register for classes through STUDENT HUB.
Class Cancellation Notification Process
You will be notified if one of your classes is cancelled through STUDENT HUB Personal Messages. If your class is cancelled, you should review the availability of other sections of the same course, seek academic advising, and then register for classes.
In order to Waitlist for a course, you must follow the regular “registration” process as noted below.
- Log on to STUDENT HUB
- Click on “My Services/Registration” tab
- Click on “My Services/Registration” link in middle of page – a new tab, or window, should open
- Click on “Registration, Student Financial Services, etc.” link
- Click on link for “Registration”
- Click on “Add/Drop/Waitlist Classes” link
- Select term from the drop down box, click “Submit”
- Add CRN numbers for classes, choose “Waitlist”, “Register”, etc. and click “Submit”
Once you are waitlisted for a course, remember to check your email regularly. The computer system continues to monitor waitlist openings until the first class meeting. When an opening occurs, the first person on the waiting list is sent an email allowing that student to register for the open seat within 48 hours, provided there are no holds, prerequisite issues or other blocks that would not allow you to register. Please remember:
- Check your msudenver.edu email account regularly while you are on a waitlist.
- You will have 48 hours from the date and time of the automatically-generated email notice to register yourself for the course.
- If you do not register yourself within the time allotted you will be dropped from the waitlist.
NOTE: One week before the first day of the semester, the amount of time you will have to register (after notification) will decrease to 24 hours.
Again, if you do not register before your notice expires the system will automatically drop you from the waitlist and notify the next student on the list. Neither the Department nor the Registrar’s Office will be able to make exceptions for students who do not register for the class within the time period stated in the notification email.
You will need to work with the department of the waitlist course to see if absorption is possible or not.
Note: Waitlist classes do not count toward the total enrollment for your financial aid disbursement. Please contact the Financial Aid Office if you have any questions. Waitlisted students in ONLINE COURSES DO NOT have access to classes until after they are officially enrolled into a class.
