Registration

Currently Enrolled Students - Students who are enrolled for the current semester will receive an enrollment date via email indicating when they can begin to add classes for the future semester.  This date is also viewable in their MyView Student Center.  Enrollment dates are assigned based on academic career and academic level.  Pre-Regisration begins on the first Monday in April for Fall and the first Monday in November for Spring.  

New Students - Students who are new to UMSL can register during the open registration period.  Open registration begins on the third monday in April for Fall and the third Monday in November for Spring.   All new degree-seeking students must see an advisor before registering for classes.  Your advisor will give you a copy of your degree audit (DARS) report.

Dropping Courses

No student may cease attendance without formally withdrawing or dropping courses after classes begin. 

Students may drop courses without administrative approval through the "official last day to drop classes without receiving a grade" via MyView, or in person. After the "official last day to drop classes without receiving a grade" students may drop classes (with appropriate signatures) in the Registrar's Office, the Advising Office, or the Dean's Office.

Students dropping a class can check the Fee Reassessment Chart to determine any change in tuition.

For help dropping classes, view the following instructions - Dropping a Course

Section Changes

After the "official last day to enroll" signatures of both the instructor of the section being added, and the instructor of the section being dropped are required. Please note: If changing sections or swapping classes after the 100% fee reassessment date, students will be assessed fees for the class they are exiting. To view the Fee Reassessment Chart or visit the UMSL Cashiers website.

Withdrawal from the University

After classes begin, and during the first four weeks, students may withdraw from the university by dropping their courses thru MyView>Self-Service. Before the student can drop their last course, they will be directed to complete a withdrawal survey.  Once the survey is verified by the Registrar’s Office, the student will be dropped from their last course using the date the survey was completed. During the first four weeks of a regular semester students may withdraw from the university without receiving grades.

After this period, Students are required to complete the late drop form and obtain Instructor and Deans approval. Grades of F or "Excused" are issued, based on whether the student is passing or failing. The student will need to complete the Late Drop form for each course they are enrolled in. Students must also complete the withdrawal survey by selecting the link below.

Students will receive a withdrawal notification email to confirm receipt of your intent to withdrawal.
