Waiver of Late Registration Fee

Students may be registering late for classes due to illness, extenuating circumstances, or university error. The late registration fee may be waived in these situations. Complete the waiver section of the form, describing the details of your circumstance and attaching supporting documentation (required for illness; optional for others).

Please note that a waiver will not be granted for the following circumstances:

  1. I was unable to register due to a valid registration hold on my account.
  2. I was unable to register because there were no seats available in the course section that I wanted.

Deadline to submit waiver is the 4th Monday of the semester. All late registration petitions submitted after the 4th Monday will automatically be assessed the late registration fee regardless of circumstance. No waiver of fee will be allowed after the deadline.
