  • Adding a class the 6th - 10th days of the quarter (or summer equivalent) is considered late enrollment (see below).
  • Online registration is only available through the first week of each quarter.

Adding a Class 

You can add classes during the first week of the quarter*, if the class is open.  If the class is full, you will need permission from the instructor to overload into the class. 

Adding a class during the second week of the quarter is considered "late enrollment" and compromises a student's ability to be successful in the course.  Late enrollment is permitted only in rare and unusual circumstances.  Registering during the second week of the quarter requires that the student submit a Petition for Late Enrollment to the instructor, and is allowed only by special permission from both the instructor and the division dean.  The deadline for late enrollment is the last day of the second week of the quarter.  See the Academic Calendar for specific dates.  Students cannot register for classes after the last day of the second week of the quarter (see exceptions below).

Exceptions to the quarterly late enrollment timeline include:
          Enrollment into late starting and continuous enrollment courses
          Re-registration after drop for non-payment (instructor's signature or emailed permission required)
          Section changes (with instructor signature or emailed permission)
          Registration using the state employee or senior waiver (instructor approval required)

 *Summer quarter deadlines differ.  Please refer to the Summer class schedule or Academic Calendar.

 

Dropping a Class

Through the first week of the quarter you get a 100% refund for the tuition that was paid if you drop a class.  If you drop a class the second week and third weeks of the quarter you get a 50% refund*.  No refunds are granted after the third week of the quarter.

 You can drop classes after the quarter starts.  Starting the 11th day of the quarter, you will need to get instructor permission to drop a class. This will result in a "W" showing on your transcript for withdrawal, and you will be charged a $15 add/drop feeNo "W" will be given after the first day of the seventh week.  Instead, the student will need to contact the instructor about withdrawal options.

 *Summer quarter deadlines differ.  Please refer to the Summer class schedule or Academic Calendar.

 

Getting Dropped from a Class

If you were dropped from your classes before the quarter started, you can re-register.  However, if one or more classes are now full, you will need to put yourself on the waitlist. 

If you were dropped after the quarter has started and it is after the 5th day of classes, you will have to get instructor permission for each class for which you wish to re-register.  You can use one of the following two methods:

  • In person or hybrid classes:  Complete a Schedule Change Form to re-register and obtain the instructor's signature or emailed permission for each class.  Bring these to Enrollment & Financial Aid Services during regular business hours.
  • Fully online classes only:  Requests to re-register into fully online classes may be emailed to regdl@shoreline.edu.  Be sure to forward the instructor's emailed permission and include your name, student identification number and the name and item number of the course(s).  You must forward instructor's permission for each course.
