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.

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.

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 students are required to complete the necessary procedures to officially withdraw from the University.  Students are required to complete the withdrawal survey.  An email notification will be sent when the survey has been completed.

 Students can drop all but one of their courses in MyView>Self-Service through the eighth week of the semester.  From the fifth through the eighth week a grade of EX will automatically be assigned, Students will then be directed to complete a withdraw 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.   

From the ninth through the twelfth week of the semester, students are required to complete the late drop form, obtaining the instructor approval for each course.  A grade of F or EX is issued based on whether the student is passing or failing at that time.  Students are required to complete the late drop form and obtain instructor approval in addition to the withdrawal survey.

After this period, instructor and dean approval is required on the late drop form.

For 8 Week Session courses, visit the 8 Week Semester Calendar on the Registrar’s Website for necessary approvals.
