  5. The Expiration Date field appears with a default date. The default date is set for the first day of classes for the semester. The Registrar's Office will not allow students to register online after the first day of classes. If the student wishes to register for a course after the first day of classes, he/she will have to add the course using the Add/Drop Form and obtain your signature for permission to register.

    You can change the date on the Expiration Date field to a date of your preference to give the student a deadline to register for the course. If you do not plan to assign a deadline to the student, leave the Expiration Date field with its value of default date as it is.

    If the student has not yet registered before the deadline (the deadline, if any, is up for you to decide), the course permission will go to the student next in line. If you decide to change the date, it is very important to know exactly when the student's enrollment appointment is and to be sure the deadline given is after the student's enrollment appointment.
