Review this important information for assistance in completing your registration activities.
Five things that will stop you from registering for classes:
- Your SAP compliance status
- Failure to take sexual assault prevention training
- Low GPA
- Clearing up your debt with CSU
- Immunization holds
You still have time to get the help, tutoring or resources you need. Step into the
registrar’s office, or check with your advisor or the Wellness Center to clear up
any concerns you may have.

Payment. Financial Aid recipients must get a business receipt from the Cashier, ADM-211.
Get a waiver from the Financial Aid Office, ADM-207. Present the waiver at the Cashier,
ADM-211. Once you get a receipt from the Cashier your classes will not be dropped
for non-payment whether you make a payment or not. NOTE: Students with tuition waivers
or scholarships must follow the same procedures as financial aid recipients.
All students must have a permanent Student Photo Identification Card. A valid CSU
I.D. card is required to use all university facilities, including the library and
the computer laboratory. Those who do not have a card must be photographed at the
time of registration. New students, students who have lost their I.D. cards, and
students who have changed their names, must go to Cordell Reed Student Union Building,
Room 244 to receive an ID card.
WITHDRAWAL/DROPPING/ADDING A CLASS Students may drop classes on CSU X-PRESS up to and including the 100% refund date.
After the 100% refund date, students may drop or withdraw from classes by completing
the Change of Program form. The form, with appropriate signatures, must be submitted
to the Office of the Registrar by published deadline dates in order to prevent academic
penalty. Students will not be permitted to add classes after the registration period.
A drop/withdrawal from a course or courses is not complete until the Change of Program
form is submitted and approved by a Records and Registration staff member.
