Livingstone College operates on the semester system. All students must register at the beginning of each semester. Each student is assigned a faculty advisor, who assists in planning a program of study. Complete registration instructions are published by the Office of the Registrar. Students are registered for and entitled to attend classes only when they have completed the prescribed procedures, including the payment of tuition and fees. New students will be advised regarding courses and registration procedures during orientation sessions at the beginning of each semester. All students need to report for registration as indicated on the Academic Calendar.
A student cannot attend a class if he/she is not properly registered for that course and section. Failure to follow a proper registration procedure may jeopardize the student’s good standing at the College and result in loss of credit. Instructors’ class rosters are made up from the official enrollment records kept in the Registrar’s Office. Students whose names are not on the class roster in each class should contact the Registrar’s Office to verify their registration.
Pre-registration is a time period designated each semester to allow the student and advisor to review and plan the student’s courses for the upcoming semester. Students who pre-register may find it less difficult to secure a satisfactory schedule of courses. Under no circumstance is pre-registration to be considered official registration.
Pre-registered students who fail to officially register on dates designated for official registration will have their preregistered schedule of courses automatically removed by the Registrar’s Office. Those students who find it necessary to register after the designated dates must select another schedule of courses for that semester and must pay a late registration fee as required by the college. No student will be permitted to register later than the time specified on the Academic Calendar.
A student who enters the College after the designated dates for registration pays a late registration fee as required by the college (payable in full at the time of registration). No student, however, will be permitted to register after the time specified on the Academic Calendar. All registration materials must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar at the conclusion of the registration process.
Withdraw from a Course
Students are expected to honor the schedule of classes selected at the beginning of the semester. There may be instances, however, when the student wishes to withdraw from a course after the end of the Drop period. The decision to withdraw from a course must be made in consultation with the faculty advisor and the instructor of the course. Forms for withdrawing from class after the end of the Drop period are available in the Registrar’s Office. Students must withdraw from a course within the time period indicated on the Academic Calendar.
Withdraw from the Institution
When a student finds it necessary to withdraw from the institution before the end of a semester, he/she needs to obtain an Official Withdrawal Form from the Office of the Registrar, secure the required signatures, and return the form to the Registrar’s Office. This procedure must be followed in its entirety for the student to be considered “officially withdrawn.”
Any student leaving without completing the official withdrawal process receives a grade of “F” (Failure) in each course in which he/she was enrolled.
