Was your class canceled?

  • If your class was recently canceled and you are wondering if you need to meet with a counselor, here are some tips to follow first: 
  • Look to see if the same class is available in WebSchedule for registration 
  • Do you have an updated Student Educational Plan?  If so, see if there are other courses listed in a following semester that you can take now. Please note: you will still need to meet any prerequisites for courses listed in subsequent semesters
  • If you have further questions or concerns, attend the Welcome Center Zoom Hour.

Also -- For general questions or help with registration, you can talk to a Student Ambassador via Zoom! 
Student Ambassadors cannot make you a counseling appointment or give counseling information.
