Officially Registered - You are a registered student if you have one or more courses at the close of the registration period. As a registered student, you are responsible for payment of all fees and for grades in these courses, unless you officially drop them or withdraw from the University by the appropriate deadlines.

Course Prerequisites - Check the prerequisites of courses to see if you meet the requirements. If you register for a course and do not have the required prerequisites, you will dropped from the course. Faculty can allow you to enroll in a course without the required prerequisites by giving the student a permission number (to use in E-Hive) or by signing an add form that is brought to the Registrar's Office for processing.

Time Conflicts - If you attempt to register for overlapping courses, you will receive a message about the time conflict. If you are permitted to register for the course with the conflict, you must register through the Registrar's Office.
