Paying for College
Before we get started, let’s go over a few quick definitions:
Registration: From the first day course registration opens to students to the day before a term or express/weekend session begins. Does not include Late Registration which begins at 12:01 a.m. on the first day of term or express/weekend session.
Census: A defined date after the term begins which is the ‘official’ date to determine class enrollment count. Varies by how long the course meets in the term, e.g., 16-week regular session, express class, weekend class, etc.
Drop: Termination of course registration on or before the census date.
Withdrawal: Termination of course registration after the census date.
