Overload/Late Entry Registration

Schedule adjustment will take place during the week that classes begin. See the Important Academic Dates for registration and class start/end dates, adjustment periods, deadlines for refunds/W grades, etc. Overload and late registration are sometimes requested by students who wish to enter a class that is full (overload) or join a class that has already met for the first time (late entry).

Before requesting an Overload or Late Entry, the student must communicate with the instructor about whether or not missed assignments will be accepted.

For online classes students can enter a class up until WebAdvisor closes the day after the class begins.


Overload

Students who want to try and overload into a full class can attempt to do so from the time the class starts through the end of the schedule adjustment period. Students must email the instructor for approval to overload. Not all instructors accept overloads. Overloads are granted at the discretion of the instructor and are not guaranteed when the Overload/Late Entry Form is issued. Students are responsible for all the work that they have missed prior to officially being registered in the course. It is left to the discretion of the instructor whether missed assignments will be accepted or graded. 

Late Entry

Students wishing to enter a class after it has met for the first time need to email the instructor for approval for late entry, even if seats are available. Not all instructors accept late entry. Students are responsible for all the work that they have missed prior to officially being registered in the course. It is left to the discretion of the instructor whether missed assignments will be accepted or graded. 

By emailing the instructor for approval, the student is responsible to pay for the course in accordance with the Schoolcraft College tuition payment policy. Refunds are only available during the posted schedule adjustment periods (refer to the Registration Guide for specific dates). If the student enters the course beyond that time there is NO refund period for the class. 

Students cannot use WebAdvisor (Student Planning) to register once the course is full or has already met for the first time.  Exception: For online classes students can enter a class up until  WebAdvisor closes the day after the class begins.

How to request overload/late entry consent:

1. Contact the instructor via email (contact information is available in the Faculty and Staff Directory). When sending your email request to the instructor be sure to include your full name, student ID number, phone number, course name and section number you are wishing to join. It must have a subject line of “Overload-Late Entry-student name.”

If the Instructor approves, they will email the Registration Center at registration@schoolcraft.edu. Emails must come from the instructor’s Schoolcraft email account. Emails need to include student name, ID number, course name/number, section number, term and statement of consent.
