Procedures for adding a class or changing sections
If student does not have any holds that block registration, they may add a class or make a section change online through the My Missouri State system or in person at the Office of the Registrar, Carrington Hall, room 320, with appropriate identification. University athletes must process all registrations and change of schedules in the Achievement Center for Intercollegiate Athletics, Forsythe Athletics Center, room 239.
If a student has a hold which prevents using the web registration system, the hold will need to be cleared before initial registration can take place by contacting the appropriate office. Students who need to process a change of schedule can visit the Office of the Registrar in person, fax a signed registration form, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org from their University email account.
If permission is required as a course prerequisite, that permission must be granted by the department before the class can be added.
After the stated deadline to add a class, departmental approval will be required to add a class or change sections of a class. Students must go the department office which offers the class, obtain a “Registration/Change of Schedule Form” with the proper signature and department stamp, and take the completed form to the Office of the Registrar for processing.
Procedures for dropping a class
Students may withdraw from one or more of their classes online or in person at the Office of the Registrar (Carrington 320 or by fax to 417-836-8776). Students who drop all their classes for a given semester who wish to return within an academic year do not need to apply for readmission. The date each drop is completed shall be the date used in determining the refund of fees and the assignment of grades. Drops are not allowed after the last day to drop deadline for the course. Refer to the "Academic Calendar" for specific deadline dates. University athletes must process all registration and change of schedules in the Achievement Center for Intercollegiate Athletics, Forsythe Athletics Center, room 239.
Students who have a hold which prevents using the web registration system can drop the class or classes by contacting the Office of the Registrar in person, faxing a signed registration form to 417-836-6334, or sending an email to email@example.com from their University email account.
Students should use the drop procedure judiciously as dropping courses will generally result in extending the time required to complete a degree. In addition, dropping below a full-time or half-time enrollment status may jeopardize insurance, financial aid, scholarship, athletic participation eligibility and immigration status for F-1 or J-1 students. Students dropping a class because of a concern regarding their grade in a course are encouraged to consult with the instructor prior to dropping a course. Students who are concerned about the impact of dropping a course on their progress toward graduation are encouraged to consult with their academic advisor prior to dropping.
Procedures for dropping all classes
For exception to drop after the stated deadline to drop a class, refer to the "Exception" section of the Change of Schedule policy.
