To Add or Drop a Class

    Important Deadlines:  See the semester calendar.  Note:  Classes that are less than a full semester have different deadlines which are proportional to the length of the class.  
    Exception:  In order to enroll in a class after the late-registration deadline, the instructor's signature is required on an add form and student must bring the completed form to the Registrar's Office, 102 Jardine Hall, and present their Shocker ID Card or other photo identification.

Cancelled Classes

The University reserves the right to cancel classes due to insufficient enrollment, or to make reassignment of instructors due to extraordinary circumstances. A full refund of enrollment fees will be automatically authorized for students who are enrolled in a class which has been cancelled. If you wish to use the refund (credit) from the cancelled class to pay the tuition for a replacement class you are “ADDING,” then you must process a “DROP” for the cancelled class at the same time you process an “ADD” for the replacement class. This must be done within the Add period for the term affected. Unless you are going to use the credit for another course, you do not have to “DROP” the cancelled course yourself. If you do nothing, we will drop the cancelled course from your schedule at the end of the second week of classes (or the proportional equivalent for shorter classes) and authorize a full refund (as appropriate).


Refunds

Partial or complete withdrawals require the student to drop each course via the online system at myWSU. Refunds will be issued by the Accounts Receivable Office according to the Refund Policy and based on the dates specified on the Accounts Receivable Important Dates webpage.


Senior Citizen Waiver and Enrollment

In accordance with the Kansas Board of Regents policy, students who are at least 60 years of age may audit (no-credit) regular lecture or certain group activity courses without payment of tuition when there is space available and for which they meet the prerequisites. Senior Citizen Auditors must, however, pay any applicable facilities-use fees, workshop fees or lab/special course fees.

Prerequisites include admission to graduate school for graduate courses, and program admission for courses in which program admission is required of all students.

To receive the tuition waiver, senior citizens must:

  • Be admitted to the University before registering. Instructions on how to become admitted as a senior citizen (for undergraduate courses). Scroll to the bottom of the page for instructions and the application. This process only needs to be done once.
  • Register in-person at Main Campus (Jardine Hall 102), WSU West or WSU South. Summer 2021 registration will begin on Thursday, June 3, 2021. Fall 2021 registration will begin on Thursday, August 19, 2021. If your class is not offered during the entire semester, call the Office of the Registrar at (316) 978-3090 to check for your enrollment date.
  • When enrolling, present a Medicare card or driver's license to validate age.

Senior citizens who wish to receive college credit must pay full fees and must register following the steps for online registration above.
