Schedule Adjustment Policies

It is your responsibility to check your registration for accuracy, to contact the Office of the Registrar for assistance with registration if you need help, and to make any necessary changes within the appropriate deadlines.

Cancellation Policy

If you register for courses and then decide not to attend USA, you must cancel your registration by dropping all your courses before your time ticket expires at 5:59 p.m. on the last day of Late Registration & Drop/Add. Otherwise, you may be held responsible for tuition and fees and also for grades received for your registered courses. See the University Calendar for Late Registration & Drop/Add days each semester. Non-attendance of a registered course does not constitute a formal withdrawal from that course, nor does it entitle you to a refund.

New students who cancel their registration will have to contact the Office of Admissions and update their application for admission in order to participate in registration for a future semester.

Readmitted students who cancel their registration will have to contact the Office of the Registrar and submit a new readmission application in order to participate in registration for a future semester.

If you have questions about the cancellation policy, call the Office of the Registrar.

Adding Courses

  • You can add courses to your schedule until your time ticket expires at 5:59 p.m. on the last day of Late Registration & Drop/Add. See the University Calendar for Late Registration & Drop/Add days each semester.
  • If you have a hold on your student account that prevents you from registering, you must clear the hold through the University office that issued it before you can add a course.
  • It is your responsibility to make sure that your schedule is accurate before the end of Late Registration & Drop/Add. If you are having difficulty adding a course, contact the Office of the Registrar for assistance before the end of Late Registration & Drop/Add.
  • Courses added to your registration after the end of Late Registration & Drop/Add might not be eligible for financial aid funding. Contact the Office of Financial Aid if you have questions about your financial aid.
  • If the course add constitutes a late registration, you will be assessed appropriate late fees.

Dropping Courses

  • During Registration, and Late Registration & Drop/Add, you may drop courses or drop all of your courses (cancel your registration). Courses dropped during these registration periods will not remain on your permanent academic record. Late Registration and Drop/Add ends at 5:59 p.m. on the third day of the semester. Refer to the University Calendar for exact dates each semester. Courses dropped after this time will remain on your academic records as withdrawn courses.
  • During the Drop Period, you may drop courses from your schedule or may drop all courses to completely withdraw from the semester. Courses dropped during the Drop Period will remain on your permanent academic record as withdrawn courses. The last day to drop ends at 4:59 p.m. Refer to the University Calendar for exact dates each semester. You cannot drop courses after the drop deadline.
  • If you have a hold on your student account that prevents you from dropping a course, you must go to the Office of the Registrar during office hours to drop it. The Registrar cannot drop courses for you after the deadline to drop has expired.

Complete Withdrawals

At the University of South Alabama, “Complete Withdrawal” means to drop all of your courses for the semester with the dropped courses remaining on your academic record as withdrawn courses. Unless you are a transient student or a candidate for graduation, you should still get a time ticket to register for the next semester.

  • During Registration, and Late Registration & Drop/Add, you may drop all of your courses to cancel your registration. This does not constitute a complete withdrawal from the semester because these dropped courses will not remain on your academic record (see Cancellation Policy).
  • During the Drop Period, you may drop all of your courses to completely withdraw for the semester. These dropped courses will remain on your academic record as withdrawn courses. You must complete all course drops before your time ticket expires on the last day to drop. Refer to the University Calendar for exact dates each semester.

Refunds for Dropped Courses
