Adding a Course
Students may decide to add additional courses after they have registered for the semester. Students are strongly encouraged to finalize their schedules as early as possible after registration begins. Enrollment in courses is dependent upon space availability and meeting pre-requisites. Courses may not be added after the close of business hours on Friday of the first (1st) week of the new term or block. Please refer to the academic calendar in the current catalog or the website, for specific registration deadlines for each semester.
A course waitlist is a list of students who want an opportunity to register for a section that is full. Students will be notified through their CEI email when a seat becomes available and will have twenty-four (24) hours to register for the seat. Students who are on a waitlist are encouraged to check their student email regularly for notifications. Instructors cannot override the waitlist. Waitlists close the Friday after classes begin. Waitlisted students are not considered enrolled in a course. Students must be officially registered for an open seat in order to have enrollment status at CEI and may not attend the class while on the waitlist.
Auditing a Class
During open-registration periods, students may be able to register for courses under audit status, if there is space available. Regular tuition and fees apply.
Dropping/Withdrawing from a Single Course or Courses (Not a Total Withdrawal)
Students dropping prior to the beginning of a term and during the first (1st) week of the term: Students dropping from one or more course(s) prior to the beginning of the term may do so through the use of Self-Service. Courses dropped before the beginning of the term and during the first week will not appear on the student’s official transcript.
Withdrawing from a course or courses after the first week of the term: The deadline to withdraw from one or more course(s) without grade penalty is the last day of the tenth (10th) week of the fall/spring semesters and the last day of the fifth (5th) week of the summer term. Students must use Self-Service to withdraw from their course(s) by the close of business on the final day of the withdrawal deadline. These deadlines are published on the CEI website, calendar, and in the college catalog. A grade of (W) will appear on the official transcript for each course the student withdrew from after the first (1st) week and prior to the published deadline. Students who fail to complete the official drop process will be considered enrolled and will be graded accordingly. A (W) grade can have a number of negative consequences, including negatively impacting eligibility for Federal Financial Aid. A (W) on a transcript can also raise questions by transfer institutions and even prospective employers. Students should meet with academic and financial aid advisors to carefully consider all consequences before withdrawing from courses. A student who has received financial aid and who plans on withdrawing from any course(s) will be responsible for the funds that must be returned based on the date of withdrawal.
Registration/schedule changes are the responsibility of the student. The last day to register or add courses is the Friday of the first (1st) week of the block/semester. Failure to officially drop, withdraw, or change enrollment, constitutes sufficient cause to receive a grade of (F) in the course. Students should be aware that withdrawal from courses may decrease veteran benefits, financial aid, etc. It is solely the responsibility of the student to withdraw from a course or to fill out a Total Withdrawal form.
Total Withdrawal from All Semester/Term Courses
The deadline for Total Withdrawal from CEI without grade penalty is the last day of the tenth (10th) week of the fall and spring semesters and the last day of the fifth (5th) week for the summer term. The Total Withdrawal form is available online and must be submitted to the Registrar’s Office before the deadline to withdraw to receive a (W) grade. These deadlines are published on the CEI website, calendar, and in the college catalog. A grade of (W) will appear on the official transcript for each course withdrawn from after the first (1st) week and prior to the published deadline. A petition is required if requesting to withdraw without grade penalty after the published deadline. A petition will only be authorized in cases of documented circumstances of hardship, medical issues (documentation is required from the health care provider), or training related employment. Petitions granting late Total Withdrawals are decided by a Student Affairs committee.
