Glen Oaks operates on a semester basis, with two 15-week semesters (fall and winter) and a spring/summer session in which courses start and finish at various times.
Students register for classes according to instructions published each semester in the Class Schedule as well as on our website under Go-Zone. The schedule indicates general information on dates and times. Students register on campus by completing the necessary registration forms and paying tuition and fees.
Students are not admitted to class until they are properly registered. Any exceptions to this policy must be approved by the Registrar. A full tuition payment is due at the time of registration. Students must complete an Application for Admission, New Student Orientation and participate in ACCUPLACER Placement Evaluation (or obtain a placement waiver) before their first registration will be processed.
A student who carries 12 or more credits is classified as a full-time student. However, to complete an associate degree in two years, a student must carry what is known as a "full load." A "full load" is usually 15-16 credit hours/semester.
Students desiring to take more than 18 semester hours during the fall or winter semesters must receive approval from a counselor or academic advisor. Those seeking permission to overload during a given semester should have an accumulated grade point average of 3.0 or better.
A student who registers for 12 semester hours of credit or more in a given semester.
A student who registers for less than 12 semester hours of credit in a given semester. Note: This may vary for veterans.
Any student who has completed less than 28 semester hours of credit.
Any student who has completed 28 or more semester hours of credit.
No courses can be added by a student after 10% of the academic period has elapsed, unless there are documented extenuating circumstances and approval by the Dean of Academics. Students are not permitted to add a course if they have missed the equivalent of one week of instruction.
A change in program is not officially recorded until an Add/Drop form has been completed and processed by the Registrar's Office or Online. The date this form is approved by the Registrar's Office or processed through Web registration is the date used to determine eligibility for a refund. It is strongly recommended that advice be sought from a counselor and or instructor before a schedule change is made.
