Students must be properly admitted in order to register for classes taught by the Undergraduate College at Hampton University. Certain students of the Graduate College and the College of Continuing Education and Continuing Studies of Hampton University may take courses in the Undergraduate College if special permission is granted. The student must also pay all applicable tuition and fees. No registration has official standing until fully validated.
- Program planning is the responsibility of the individual student. Each regular seeking degree seeking student, whether part-time or full-time, has a faculty advisor assigned to assist him or her in planning a program and sequence of courses. Each academic department prepares materials to assist students in program planning and keeping requirements of the major field of study up to date and coordinated with current professional certification, licensing, and other requirements. Each student should review his or her own personal eight-semester (ten for five year program) plan before each early registration period and be prepared for the pre-registration conference with his or her academic advisor.
- Early registration is conducted in mid-semester for the following semester, it is to each student’s advantage to pre-register for classes and make early financial arrangements. The student meets with his or her advisor as scheduled, and completes all pre-registration for courses in the advisor’s office or major department. Billing shortly follows, and all early registration for the next semester can be completed before the end of the current semester. The student who registers early and pays has priority in most classes, avoids a portion of the registration fee, and can return for semester with minimal check-in processing.
- Changes in Registration. After an initial registration for a group of courses is fully validated, a student may make adjustments in courses, sections, or grading status, if approved by faculty advisor or major department chairperson.
- The period in which courses may be added and grading status changed ends approximately one week after the start of classes for each semester. The Official Academic Calendar contains the currents dates. No schedule changed may be made after this period ends.
