Graduate and Adult Programs Registration

Registration

Cedarville University course registration for graduate and adult programs is completed through a web-based interface called Student Planning. To register for your courses, please review the following:

  • New graduate and adult students: Please submit a one-time, nonrefundable reservation deposit of $150 to register for courses. Contact University Admissions with any deposit questions.
    • Note: Once your deposit is processed and your record is activated (usually within one–two business days), you will receive a notification email from the Office of the Registrar (or your program advisor). Upon receiving notification, you will be able to complete your orientation and register for your courses.
  • Current graduate and adult students: You may register for your courses without a deposit. Your access to online registration in Student Planning has been activated. Degree-seeking students should contact their program advisor for course selection and sequence advising.

Drop/Add

Changes in the course schedule made after the beginning of a course must be made through the Office of the Registrar. Course drop/add forms are available on the registrar’s website. The form must be signed by the student and submitted to the Office of the Registrar in person, by email, or by fax. No courses may be added after the first class without the additional approval of the appointed director of the particular graduate program and the approval of the faculty member teaching the course. The effective date of the course change is the date the registrar receives the completed form.

When adding a class, the student is required to make up any work missed because of late entrance, assuming that the instructor is willing to allow late entrance into his/her course.

Failure to properly drop a class will result in a grade of “Z.” (See Grading System on page 8.) When a course is dropped properly during the fall or spring terms, the action is recorded as follows:
