Course Enrollment Information
You must obtain a registration override from the academic department office offering the class before being allowed to enroll in a closed class. Registration overrides for prerequisites must be obtained from the course instructor or academic department office. After receiving an override, you must use goNSU to register in the course.
Short-term Class Enrollment
You must enroll in short-term classes before they begin. Students are encouraged to enroll in short-term classes at the beginning of the semester but will be allowed to enroll in them up to the day before the first class meeting. The refund period for short-term classes is based on the length of the class. It is recommended that students drop short-term classes before they begin in order to ensure a refund will be given. You can drop the short-term courses using your self service menu via goNSU.
Deadline dates for withdrawals and refunds for each semester are posted on the Academic Calendar available from the Course Schedule page. Refund and withdrawal dates are different for short term classes and full term classes. NSU does not withdraw students for non-payment and does not issue partial refunds. Check the calendar each semester before classes start in order to ensure you are dropping by the pertinent dates.
You may add or drop a class by using the self service menu via goNSU. The approved dates for adding classes are listed in the semester calendar of the class schedule. The student must secure approval of the instructor, department chair and/or college dean, and present it to the Registrar's office in order to add a class after the last day to add has passed.
If you have a hold that is preventing you from dropping a class, contact your academic advisor or the Registrar's Office for assistance. You may also send an email with your NSU ID number and the CRN of the class(es) you want to drop to firstname.lastname@example.org. This process is not for dropping all classes during a semester at NSU. Refer to the Withdrawal page for information on a complete withdrawal.
If you withdraw from single courses or completely from the university before or during the 12th week, you will be assigned a "W" regardless of your progress in the course. If you withdraw after the 12th week, the instructor may assign a "W" or "F" depending on your standing in the course. This applies to all full term courses for a spring or fall semester.
Verification of Enrollment
Enrollment verifications may be obtained by signing in to goNSU. On the student tab, locate the Request an Enrollment Verification link in the Registration Information block and follow the instructions. The verification will be mailed, faxed or emailed according to your request.
If you are an undergraduate or special student, full-time status is defined as 12 or more credits per semester; half-time status is 6-11 credits per semester.
If you are a graduate student, full-time status is defined as 9 or more credits per semester; half-time status is 5-8 credits per semester.
We cannot count audit registration for certification purposes. To obtain a verification for a loan company, bring your loan deferment form to the Office of the Registrar.
More information about deferments and other exceptions to the definitions of full-time and half-time status is available at the Office of the Registrar.
