Registration and Course Change Calendar

Registration and Course Change Calendar

Academic Calendar. The academic calendar for various quarters can always be found on the Registrar’s Office website at http://www.fuller.edu/registrar/academic-calendar.aspx.

Fall Quarter. Online registration for returning students begins near the end of August, in the tenth week of Summer Quarter. New student registration begins the following week, the final week of Summer Quarter. Both groups of students are scheduled according to a priority system (see Priority Lists). You can register any time after your priority time, but if your registration does not happen before the first day of the quarter you will be charged a $30 Late Registration Fee. There are no fees for adding or dropping classes.

Other Quarters. Registration for returning students for other quarters begins the eighth week of the previous quarter. The same priority system is used to schedule registration times. New students register beginning the ninth week of the previous quarter (see New Student Registration). You can register anytime after your priority time, but if your registration does not happen before the first day of the quarter you will be charged a $30 Late Registration Fee. There are no fees for adding or dropping classes.

Registration and Course Change Deadlines. You can make changes in your schedule by adding or dropping classes online at any time within the established deadlines. To meet the deadlines the seminary has established, any registration or course change must be done online by 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time on the day indicated below. All registrations (including online classes, apprenticeships, directed studies, internships, theses, dissertations, continuations, etc.) are subject to these registration deadlines. If extremely extenuating circumstances cause you to miss a deadline, you may petition for an exception. We’re sorry, but ignorance of the deadline, lack of time, forgetfulness, or inability to register for financial reasons do not provide a basis for petition.

Special Note About Audits

An audit registration is simply permission to attend a class. Once registered, audits cannot be dropped and no refund is given.

Students seeking to audit a class must meet all prerequisites.
