Update: Summer 2015 Registration

May 27th, 2015

Summer 2015 registration is closed following the May 27, 5:00 p.m. payment deadline.

Thursday, May 28 should be treated as a minimum activity system day–no staff or students may use the registration system and staff are reminded to get in and out of records quickly. During this day, DREG processing and course cancellation work will be completed.

Beginning Friday, May 29 at 12:01 a.m. summer registration re-opens for all students, for classes that still have seats available. Open registration continues through Sunday, May 31 at midnight. The payment deadline for any registration during this time is Tuesday, June 2 at 5:00 p.m.

Courses that are being cancelled due to low enrollment will be identified late Thursday afternoon (5/28). Cancelled class students will be emailed to advise them of their status and the days they can use Online Services to register for open sections. Cancelled class students are automatically cleared to register through the end of schedule changes, regardless of whether they are currently in any classes that have started.

After midnight on May 31st, all systems are programmed to start the schedule change period (add/drop) which is open through Tuesday, June 2.

REMINDER INFORMATION: Student Schedule Changes After Classes Start
During the schedule change period, students who are not currently enrolled in any courses in a teaching session that has started are not eligible to late register for classes in teaching sessions that have started. This does not apply to Senior Citizens who are registering for the first time during the schedule change period for tuition-waived classes and any cancelled class students. Please review the procedures that are attached here, as they have changed.

All students may also register for any courses in future sessions that have not yet started. The payment deadline for all course registration that is done through June 2–regardless of the start date of the course–is Tuesday, June 2, at 5:00 p.m.

Continuing Education (CE) students will continue to register via the web system during all of the times above. CE students will also be able to register in person at HBC.

Procedures for handling class limit overload requests can be found on the President’s org reference site at: Class limit Overload Procedures

Developmental Education and Level Changes only:
Between June 2 and June 12, developmental education, science, math, and foreign language departments may initiate course or level changes for students, as determined appropriate by the departmental faculty. Departmental staff should use the Schedule Change Form to make the requested changes. When the change results in the addition of credit hours to the student’s schedule, payment must be made within one business day for the additional credits added to the schedule.

When filling out the form, the initiator should review the student’s records to ascertain that no time or day conflict occurs with the student’s established course schedule, that the student has no holds barring him from registration, and that the student has met pre- or co-requisite course requirements.

The forms must be completely filled out, including:
A. Signature and contact telephone number of the designated authority
B. Course override permission (when required)

The student should bring the completed form to any campus Admissions and Records Office. Registration is completed at the time the student submits the form, except in the case of missing information on the form or other issues that require additional research. Students should obtain a new fee receipt from the Cashier’s Office in the case of all changes, to determine if any additional charges are incurred. If additional tuition is charged, payment must be received within one working day of the submission of the schedule change form to remain enrolled in course(s).

Thank you for your attention to these matters and as always, if you have any questions please e-mail or call.

Best wishes for a great semester-
