Spring 2018 start of semester reminders

Spring semester 2018 classes began on January 8, 2018. Please take a look at the following reminders:

Faculty: As you return to classes for the spring 2018 semester, please check your class lists on eServices under class management. Please be aware of the time and where your classes are meeting, as that can change after the semester begins. Students are not allowed to sit in classes they are not registered for.

Drop/Add Deadline: The deadline for dropping a course(s) without financial penalty and/or adding a course(s) is January 12, 2018, at 4 p.m. No entry will be made in a student’s record if a course is dropped before this date.

Class Permissions: After the January 12 deadline, a student can no longer add courses via eServices. A department-issued ‘registration permit’ will be required to add any courses and must be processed in the Registrar’s Office. The permit must be signed by the student and the instructor teaching the course. Permits can be found in departments or on the Registrar’s Office website under Forms.

Holds: If issues occur while trying to add or drop a course, it may be because of a hold or certain restriction on the course. To see a list of common reasons along with the error message and possible solution, go to the following link: Common Registration Problems.

Withdrawal Deadline: Students may continue to drop classes after January 12, but will receive a ‘W’ on their academic record and will remain financially responsible for tuition and fees. Withdrawal deadlines vary for half term and full term sessions. For most full-term sessions the deadline is April 16, 2018; however, we advise students to check their eServices for specific withdrawal deadlines for each course.

Waitlists: Waitlists for the 2018 spring semester courses will end on January 12, 2018. Waitlists are lists of students waiting to get registered for a course that is full. If a student is on a waitlist for a course, they will receive a notification sent to their mnstate.edu email account. The student will have 24 hours after being notified to go to eServices and register for the course.

If you have questions, please visit the Registrar’s Office webpage or contact the Registrar’s Office at 218.477.2565. You can also follow us on Twitter @MSUMRegistrar for important updates. The Registrar’s Office is located in Owens Hall 104.
