October 3:  Last day to add a class for Fall Quarter

Research has demonstrated that late registration has a negative impact on a student’s ability to be successful in a course. Because Shoreline Community College is committed to the success of every student, the College is making a significant change to the timeline for adding classes after the quarter begins. Please read the message below, from Enrollment & Financial Aid Services (EFAS), detailing the changes.

Beginning Fall Quarter 2017, students may add classes through the first full week of the quarter only.

The last day to add a class for Fall Quarter will be Tuesday, October 3. October 3, 2017, is also the last day for online registration.

Adding a class during the second week of the quarter is now considered “late enrollment”.* Late enrollment will be permitted only in rare and unusual circumstances. Requests for late enrollment will require that the student complete a Petition for Late Enrollment form (On the student forms page, “Petition for Late Enrollment” ) be submitted to the instructor, and will be allowed only by special permission of the course instructor and the division dean.

The student must complete the form, including a statement of why they are enrolling after the first week of classes, and forward the form to the instructor (NOT to Enrollment & Financial Aid Services). The instructor will approve or deny, then forward to the dean. If approved, the dean will forward the petition to EFAS, who will register the student and notify the student, instructor, and dean.

The deadline for late enrollment will be the last day of the second week of the quarter.  For Fall Quarter 2017, the last enrollment date will be Tuesday, October 10.
*Exceptions: Exceptions to the Fall Quarter late-enrollment deadline include enrollment into late-starting and continuous-enrollment courses, section change (with instructor approval), re-enrollment after drop for non-payment (with instructor’s approval), and registration using a state employee/senior citizen tuition waiver (with instructor’s approval).

If you have questions, please contact your Division Dean or Pollie McCloskey at pmccloskey@shoreline.edu.
