For special instances, such as registering to take an independent study course, you need to submit a form and obtain approval. See the information below.


Filled Classes

If a class that you absolutely must have is full, you can seek special permission to enroll from the instructor, or from the department chair if no instructor is listed. Please note, however, that permission to enroll in a full class is granted only in exceptional cases.

Get a Special Registration Permission Form here or from the college Records Office, Johnston Hall 112. If consent is granted, you will be given a permission number to enroll in the course.


Department Consent

If a class requires consent of the instructor or department, you must secure that consent before you can register. Get a Special Registration Permission Form here or from the college Records Office, Johnston Hall 112. If consent is granted, you will be given a permission number to enroll in the course.

 

Independent Study Opportunities

To enroll in an independent course, download a form here or pick one up in the college Records Office, Johnston Hall 112. You also need a faculty member’s agreement to supervise the course. For independent study courses, the form will be sent to the Registrar’s Office, where you will be automatically enrolled.

For more information on independent courses, see the guidelines for independent study.


Dropping or withdrawing from a course

If you no longer wish to remain in a course, you may drop the course via CheckMarq before the end of late registration (usually about a week after courses begin). See the Academic Calendar. If you no longer wish to remain in a course, and registration has ended, you may withdraw (not drop) the course.
  • You must complete a withdrawal form, available here or in the college Records Office, Johnston Hall 112. You cannot withdraw from a course by simply not attending.
  • Submit the form by the last day to withdraw, listed in the Academic Calendar.
  • Approval is up to the Associate Dean.
  • If you miss the deadline, you receive the grade you earned in the course.

 

Summer School Coursework at Another Institution

If you plan to take courses at another institution, you must complete a Transfer Course/Credit Request form available at the MU Central’s website.
