Registration
Students are responsible for ensuring that the courses selected will fulfill degree requirements. Before registering, students should read relevant sections of the catalog and discuss the course choices with an academic advisor. Failure to do so can result in taking courses that will not fulfill degree requirements. Students who enroll in a course without completing course prerequisites may be withdrawn from the course by the College and may not qualify for a refund of tuition. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that all course prerequisites are completed. Students must have successfully completed ELO 100 before enrolling in any online course.
