The registration schedule for currently enrolled, continuing students generally falls as follows:

TERM

COURSE SCHEDULES and REGISTRATION SCHEDULE GENERALLY AVAILABLE

REGISTRATION GENERALLY BEGINS

Spring First week of October First week of November
Summer First week of March First week of April
Fall First week of March First week of April

Continuing students are students enrolled in St. Edward's University courses during the current term or students with an active academic status. All students are required to have an active account to use myHilltop web-based registration. Contact the Helpline at (512) 448-8443, if you have problems with your login or password.

New and re-admitted students should review the registration schedule once available for registration dates.

Each student is responsible for determining, prior to the end of the adjustment period, whether he/she has the appropriate class schedule. Course prerequisites, compatibility with work schedule and class assignments should be considered carefully. All schedule adjustments must be processed by the published deadlines. Students are allowed to withdraw from courses during the posted schedule adjustment period. During this period, the refund schedules set forth by the Office of Student Financial Services are adhered to.

Students assume financial and academic responsibility for each registered course. Withdrawing does not automatically absolve a student's financial responsibility for his or her educational expenses. It is the student's responsibility to drop/withdraw from courses. Discontinuing attendance or notifying an instructor of a status change does not constitute a drop or withdrawal. The student is responsible for initiating and completing the drop or withdrawal procedure utilizing myHilltop web-based registration. If the student fails to complete the process, he or she will receive the grade(s) assigned by the instructor(s) of record and be billed accordingly. For more information about the Formal Withdrawal process please view the Formal Withdrawal Checklist.

A student may add or drop courses (make schedule adjustments) any time during the registration period. After this period, a student may only withdraw from courses. Consult the dates and deadlines for the specific term.

Before your meeting, it is imperative that you prepare a tentative schedule and select alternate courses. Undergraduate students register based on their classification for registration. Classification for registration is calculated by adding the number of completed (earned) hours to the number of currently registered hours.
