Registration

Students new to Guilford must apply and be admitted to the College before they are allowed to register for classes, with the exception of auditors and visiting summer school students. Students who have attended Guilford but withdraw or skip one or more semesters, not including summer, must be readmitted before they are allowed to register.

CE-Only Classes

During fall and spring semesters, many evening courses are limited to CE students only. This is done primarily to ensure class space for CE students in evening classes.

Changes in Registration

Once registered, the student is academically and financially responsible for all listed courses and may change registration using BannerWeb until the first day of classes or by delivering to the Registrar’s Office an appropriately completed and signed drop-add slip. Students can drop or add courses with just an advisor’s signature until the last day to add. However, adding courses that are full or closed requires the instructor’s signature. Refer to the academic calendar for specific registration-related dates such as the last day for students to add courses, drop courses without a grade, and drop courses with a W grade.

Requests for registration changes are dated according to when the request is received by the Registrar’s Office or completed in BannerWeb. Students are financially responsible for courses dropped after the last day to drop a course without a grade.

Students should check BannerWeb for an updated schedule of classes in which they are registered and report any discrepancies to the Registrar’s Office within one week of submitting the drop/add form. Corrections will not be made after one week.

All registration or transcript-related petitions should be directed to the registrar, whose decision is final. A denial of a registration or transcript-related petition may only be appealed to an associate academic dean on procedural grounds.
