"The deadline for students to enroll in their courses is Wednesday, October 15thThere will be no exceptions to this deadline.  Students should be advised not to wait until the last day to enroll. 

If they experience technical difficulties on the last day, we may not be able to get them enrolled.

As of this morning there are still approximately 2,000 students that have completed an online application but have not yet enrolled in their courses.

Students should also be reminded to be sure to add both their Fall and Spring term courses.  Many are forgetting to enroll in Spring.

Students who have not already submitted their applications, are no longer eligible to enroll.

Lastly, we will have extended service hours again for the last few days of the enrollment cycle.  Our toll-free helpline will be staffed from 7:30 a.m.- 7:00 p.m. starting Friday, October 10th through Wednesday, October 15th."
