Registration Information​



Glen Oaks operates on a semester basis, with two 15-week semesters (fall and winter) and a 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. The schedule indicates general information on dates and times. Students register on campus or online through the GO-Zone portal by completing the necessary registration forms and paying tuition and fees, or setting up a payment plan.

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 as directed by the college’s payment procedure. Students must complete an Application for Admission, New Student Orientation, and participate in Placement Evaluation (exception may be granted) before their first registration will be processed. The registration period for all courses shall be determined by the registrar.

Course Load

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 an academic advisor. Those seeking permission to overload during a given semester should have an accumulated grade point average of 3.0 or better.

Student Classification

Full-Time Student:
A student who registers for 12 semester hours of credit or more in a given semester.

Part-Time Student:
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.

Schedule Change

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.
