Registering for any class after the deadline requires approval from the college or school offering the course and is an exception to university policy. There is no guarantee that a late request will be approved.
Courses for which the deadline to register has passed are marked in the schedule of classes by a gray "add" button. When this button is selected, students are directed to a page that prompts them to select the appropriate link for the college offering the course. Policies and procedures vary by college and school.
The timing of when you make your request to remove courses from your current schedule determines whether the removal of a course is considered a drop or a withdrawal.
Dropping and withdrawing from courses may have a financial and academic impact. Please be sure to speak with Financial Aid and Scholarship Services as to what the impact will be on your student account. If you have questions or need assistance with dropping or withdrawing, see your graduate support coordinator.
If you no longer plan on attending or completing all of your classes in a given session, you can remove all of them from your current schedule by requesting a complete session withdrawal up until the relevant deadline. You may request a complete session drop/withdrawal by signing in to My ASU, clicking on the Registration link in your My Classes box, and selecting Drop/Withdrawal, or by mailing the Complete Session Withdrawal form to any University Registrar Services office location. Please keep in mind that a complete session withdrawal will result in a break in continuous enrollment. If you break enrollment you will need to reapply to your degree program. Learn more about complete session withdrawals and please refer to the Tuition Refund Policy to determine if dropping/withdrawing from classes will generate a tuition refund.
ASU does not drop or withdraw students for non-payment of tuition or non-attendance.
Course overrides are approved by the individual college or department at ASU. Before submitting a request, be sure to check that the course is offered by the college you are contacting.
Reserved course overrides: For use when seats are reserved for specific campus-based majors.
Space overrides: For use when all sections of a class are full.
Prerequisite course override: For use when you do not meet prerequisites or took the prerequisite(s) at another institution.
Time conflict override: For use when two classes you wish to enroll in have an overlap in time offered.
Department consent override: For use when the course is restricted for enrollment by department.
A minimum full-time course load for a graduate student in fall or spring semesters is nine credit hours. The maximum course load for which a student may register in fall or spring semesters is 18 credit hours, with a maximum of nine credit hours in each A or B session.
The credit load limit for summer sessions is three semester hours for each six-week session, five semester hours for the eight-week session, and may not exceed a total of 14 semester hours for any combination of sessions. Requests in excess of seven credit hours per summer session must be approved by the college.
A student wishing to register for more than the maximum should contact their graduate support coordinator about the appeal process. In the College of Health Solutions, students must have a minimum 3.0 GPA and previously have taken class loads of 17 to 18 hours in order to be considered.
