Fall 2012 Semester Changes
First Day Late Registration Fee (effective Monday, August 27, 2012)
To encourage attendance during the first week of classes and better manage course offerings, students who are not registered at the start of the first day of the semester will be charged a $100 late registration fee. A student who registers early, then drops classes and is not registered at the start of Day 1 will incur the late registration charge. There continues to be no charge for schedule adjustments through the posted drop/add period. Courses added after the census date, September 11, will carry an additional fee of $100/credit hr. Refer to the academic calendar for details for each semester: http://www.wright.edu/registrar/academic-calendars
Note: New first time students will not be charged the late registration fee.
Duplicate Course Checking
To provide equitable access to high-demand classes, students may enroll in only one section of a specific course (or lab). If you are currently enrolled in multiple sections of the same course, adjust your schedule to comply with this policy. Future attempts to enroll in two sections of the same course will prompt an error message and will prohibit you from adding the second course unless you obtain department approval.
There are special circumstances where it may be necessary to enroll in two sections of the same course, such as Special Topics, Thesis, Dissertation or seven week courses that may be repeated, such as KNH (formerly HPR) courses. For these cases, contact the academic department for approval.
