Freshmen normally preregister at designated times during the spring or summer preceding their first enrollment. Returning students normally preregister for the following semester during pre-designated advising weeks. These students may adjust their schedules before or at the start of each semester. Students are responsible for planning their program of study and for fulfilling graduation requirements in consultation with, and with the approval of, their adviser.

Students must complete registration during the designated times. Credit is not allowed for a course unless the student is properly registered. Lindsey Wilson reserves the right to administratively withdraw any student who has not attended a class during the first five days of a fall or spring semester.

Adviser Guidance

Incoming freshmen (0-23 hours of college credit) will be contacted by a Freshman Adviser in the Academic Success Center or a faculty adviser to discuss their initial advising needs. Students who have earned 24 or more hours of college credit will work with a faculty adviser as discussed in the following paragraph.

The Academic Affairs Office assigns a faculty or staff member as an academic adviser to those students who have earned 24 or more hours of college credit. When students select a major, they ordinarily are assigned to an adviser in that field. Every student is responsible for planning and managing his or her own academic program. Students are required, however, to consult with their academic adviser before registering for courses each semester, and regularly discuss academic opportunities and problems. Students registering electronically obtain their PIN (personal identification number) from their adviser. Students registering in traditional paper mode must have their adviser sign their registration forms.

Late Registration

Returning students who do not pre-register during the preceding spring semester will be assessed a $30 late registration fee. Similarly, new and returning students who do not complete registration confirmation by the first day of classes are subject to the same fee.

Changes in Registration: Adding and/or Dropping a Course

For Day Classes, adding a course, dropping a course, or changing from one section of a course to another section of the same course requires the approval of the adviser and the instructor for each course involved as indicated on the Add/Drop Form. The change must be reported to the Business Office and the Registrar's Office on a Add/Drop Form, which may be obtained from the Registrar's Office.  For AIM courses, adding a course, dropping a course or changing from one section of a course to another section of the same course requires the approval of the Director of the Evening Program.  For courses taught at Community sites, adding a course, dropping a course or changing from one section of a course to another section of the same course requires the approval of the Site Coordinator for the campus. Permission to add courses will not be given after the last date for late registration. Authorization for dropping a course will not be approved after more than 75% of the instructional days for a course are completed, as outlined below:  



Submitted by the student to

Day College Courses

Not later than 30 days before the end of the semester


AIM Courses

By the sixth week of class

Director of the AIM Program

Courses at Community Campus Sites

By the third weekend of class

Site Coordinator

 If changes are not properly approved and officially reported as stated above, students will receive a grade of F in the courses for which they are officially registered, and they will be charged for all such courses. Students will not receive credit for changed or added courses unless they officially register for those courses.

Transcript Records of Dropped Courses

When a course drop is properly authorized and submitted to the Registrar's Office, the course will appear on the student's transcript record with a designation of W (dropped/withdrawn).  No course drops are permitted after more than 75% of the instructional days in a course are completed.

Students who wish to drop a course must complete an Add/Drop Form, include the instructor and adviser signatures, and submit it to the Registrar's Office. Failure to do so will result in a grade of F for the course. Add/Drop Forms may be obtained from the Registrar's Office or the academic adviser.
