Registrar's Office

The Registrar’s Office is responsible for helping students with all aspects of registration and student records, including enrolling in classes, adding and dropping classes, withdrawing, evaluating transfer credits, issuing Utah Tech University transcripts, conducting degree audits, and approving students for graduation. Students can perform many of these functions online through the online campus registration system (accessed by logging into the student portal through the University web page).

The Registrar’s Office maintains a Frequently Asked Questions website to assist students.

Student Responsibility

It is a student's responsibility to verify the accuracy of their schedule before the add, drop, and fee deadlines each semester.

Students may check their own class schedules

  • Online in MY UT
  • At the Academic Advisement Center
  • At the Registrar’s Office

Adding Classes

  • Students should register for classes as soon as possible because space in classes can be limited. 
  • Students may add classes once registration has been opened for their class level (senior, junior, etc.) through the 5th day of that semester.
  • To add a class after the 5th day of the semester, students must submit an ADD card with the instructor’s signature to the Registrar's Office.
  • No class may be added after the end of the 4th week of the semester.
  • An instructor’s signature on an ADD card will NOT override placement/prerequisite criteria. To override those requirements, the additional signature of the appropriate department chair or dean is required. 

Waitlisting Full Classes

  • If a class is full (listed as “C” or closed), and a Waitlist seat is available, a student may choose to be Waitlisted online in the student registration system.
  • The student will be notified if/when a seat becomes available in the class. A notification is sent to the student’s preferred email address. The notification will contain the date and time the waitlist notification expires (The notification window may be reduced during the first week of the semester). Being added to the class is NOT automatic; students must monitor their email account for the notification(s) and register for the class.
  • After the waitlist notification expires, if the student has not enrolled in the class, they are automatically dropped from the Waitlist.
  • Once dropped from the Waitlist, the student must re-select the Waitlist option for that class and begin the process again.
  • The Waitlist is available through the 4th day of the semester.

Dropping Classes

  • Students may drop classes online through the end of the 8th week of the semester via the student portal.
  • If a course has a corequisite, a student cannot drop one class/lab and remain enrolled in the other class/lab.
  • Dropping a class or classes may affect a student’s financial aid.
  • A $10 fee per class is assessed for students dropping a course after the first week of the semester.
  • No refunds are given for classes dropped after the end of the 3rd week of the semester. Classes dropped after the 3rd week of the semester will be marked with a “W” grade on the transcript.
  • Individual classes may not be dropped after the 8th week of the semester.
  • Students with extenuating circumstances may request a Complete Withdrawal from the University through the 12th week of the semester. (See Complete Withdrawal below)

Auditing Classes

Auditing enables a student to attend a class without receiving a grade or credit. A student who chooses to audit a class must pay all applicable tuition and fees, but no grade or credit will be issued. Once a student has requested a class be changed to audit status, a grade of "AU" will be issued.

  • A student may enroll in a class as an audit according to the ADD deadlines and procedures.
  • A student already enrolled in a class may change that class to an audit through the end of the 1st week of the semester.
  • A fee will be charged for changing a course to audit status beginning the 2nd week of the semester.
  • The request for audit status cannot be reversed.
  • Students should determine the impact changing a course to “Audit” will have on their financial aid.

Administrative Drops

A student may be administratively dropped from a class or all classes for the following reasons:

  1. Not attending on the first day of a class without receiving permission from the instructor. 
  2. Registering in courses for which the prerequisites have not been met.
  3. Neglecting to pay all tuition and fees by the tuition due date.
  4. A registration hold was overridden incorrectly.
  5. As part of disciplinary sanctions imposed through the Student Code.

IMPORTANT NOTES: There is no guarantee a student will be dropped for non-attendance or non-payment.

  • It is a student’s responsibility to drop classes they do not attend and to verify the accuracy of their class schedule.
  • Not all instructors drop students who never attend a class, although they are encouraged to do so.
  • Administrative drops may affect minimum load requirements, financial aid status, graduation requirements, or other areas.
  • Once a student registers for a class, tuition and fees are assessed, even if the student does not attend any class meetings.
  • Registering for a class but never attending will impact a student’s financial aid eligibility.

Administrative Drops for Non-Payment

Tuition and fees are due the 1st day of the semester. Students who have not paid or applied for the tuition payment plan may have their classes dropped for non-payment.

When an account is not paid in full by the corresponding deadline, the student may be "dropped for non-payment", meaning all classes will be dropped.  Students whose schedule is canceled will be allowed to re-register on a space-available basis only. Reinstatement into one's original schedule may not be possible.

Complete Withdrawal from the University

A student who experiences serious personal issues (medical, psychological, financial, family, etc.) can request a complete withdrawal from all classes through the end of the 12th week of the semester.

  • Complete withdrawal must be from ALL classes, not an individual class or classes.
  • Complete withdrawals may be requested by filling out the online Complete Withdrawal form or by filling out the Complete Withdrawal form at the Registrar's Office.
  • Complete withdrawal may affect a student’s financial aid. Any possible refunds for a complete withdrawal are issued according to the deadlines published in each semester’s academic calendar.

House Bill 60 (H.B. 60)

Utah residents age 62 or older are eligible to enroll in Utah Tech University classes under House Bill 60 (H.B. 60) regulations:

  • An admission application is required.
  • If no students are waitlisted for the class, an instructor can sign an H.B. 60 ADD card beginning the first day of class, on a space available basis.
  • Submit signed H.B. 60 ADD card to Registrar's Office.
  • Pay $25 fee plus any course or lab fees.

H.B. 60 students audit courses. No credit or grades are issued for H.B. 60 enrollment. Some classes are not available under H.B. 60, including but not limited to all computer and fitness (FAST) classes.

Faculty are prohibited from adding a H.B. 60 student to any class that has students waitlisted for that course until after the last day for the waitlist.
