Enrollment and Registration
Enrollment and Registration
Registration dates are published in the college calendar. Returning students and new students who have completed admission procedures should contact their local TSTC campus for specific registration information.
Currently enrolled students may add courses, drop courses, or change sections before classes begin by contacting their program advisors. After classes begin, all students may change their schedules by obtaining course schedule change forms available from the Registrar's Office, instructors and/or department chairs. The completed forms must be submitted to the Registrar's Office by the deadline published in the TSTC college calendar. Changes are effective only when this process has been completed.
Drops and Withdrawals
Students may drop courses or withdraw from the College by completing a course schedule change form, obtaining the appropriate approval signatures, and submitting the form to the Registrar's Office. The effective date is the date the course schedule change form is received in the Registrar's Office. Deadlines for course drops and withdrawals from the college are published in the TSTC college calendar.
Students who are taking developmental education courses required by their TSI plan or pre-requisite issues may drop their developmental course only after proper advisement and approval by the Registrar's Office.
Students who concurrently drop and add the same number of credit hours in a simultaneous transaction do not incur additional charges or receive refunds. See "Refunds for Changes in Enrollment" in the Refunds section for more information.
Courses that are dropped prior to the official census dates do not appear on the student's transcript. After the official census dates, students who drop courses or withdraw from the institution receive marks of "W" (Withdrawal), provided the forms are received on or before the published deadline.
Students who withdraw from the College must ensure that all library books and laboratory equipment are returned and all financial obligations are settled before they leave.
Students are responsible for their own class attendance and participation. Faculty members may establish requirements for student participation in specific learning activities both in and out of the classroom and may consider these requirements when determining final grades.
Student Absence on Religious Holy Days
Under Texas Education Code 51.911, a student who is absent from class for the observance of a religious Holy Day is allowed to take an examination or complete an assignment scheduled for that day within a reasonable time period, as established by the faculty member. The student must give written notice by submitting a completed absence request form to the Associate Dean of Student Learning Community within the first 10 days of the term.
