Through the end of the seventh calendar day of the quarter, a student may add a course to an already existing schedule. Students may add courses online via Banner Web at www.laniertech.edu or may obtain a Drop/Add Form from his/her advisor, obtain the signature of the advisor, sign and date the form, and submit it to the Office of Student Affairs prior to the close of the office on the seventh calendar day of the quarter or the last business day, Monday through Thursday, prior to the seventh day of the academic calendar. Students who add a course may owe additional tuition and fees (see Financial Information).

Auditing Courses [+]
click again to collapse

A student who wishes to audit a course(s) and receive no credit may apply as a special admissions student if not already enrolled as a regular student. By registering as an audit student and paying the regular fees and tuition, a student is permitted to audit a course. Students auditing courses are not required to take exams; however, the instructor may request that students demonstrate required knowledge before being allowed to perform certain tasks to operate equipment. A student is not permitted to change from audit to credit or from credit to audit after the drop/add period. However, a student will be permitted to register for the course for credit at a later date. Students desiring to change from audit to credit must meet all necessary admission requirements. A grade of "AU" will be entered on the permanent record. Courses taken on an audit basis will not be used for certification for financial aid, the President's List, Social Security, or Veteran's Administration education benefits. To audit a class, a student should contact his/her advisor or the Office of the Registrar.

Dropping Courses [+]

Through the end of the third instructional day of the quarter, a student may drop a course from an already existing schedule.

click again to collapse

The semester course schedule is available on the Lanier Technical College website and contains information about course offerings and registration. Students are urged to become knowledgeable about these instructions and to follow them explicitly. Any deviation from the prescribed procedure may result in unnecessary delays in registration or errors in the resulting schedule. Advisors are available to students for academic advisement and scheduling of classes. Applicants will not be approved for academic advisement and/or registration until formally accepted by the Office of Admissions nor will they be permitted to attend classes until registration has been completed. Completion of the registration process includes payment of all assessed tuition and fees.

Registration Errors [+]
click again to collapse

It is the student's responsibility to complete the proper forms and procedures for registration or changes to registration and to verify that his/her schedule of classes is correct. The Office of the Registrar cannot be held responsible for errors resulting from the student's failure to execute the proper procedure or verify his/her schedule at the time it is received. Any problems experienced at registration or as a result of registration should be reported immediately to the Office of the Registrar.

Registration Procedures [+]

1. Returning Student Registration - Advisement/Registration for currently enrolled students only.

2. Open Registration - Registration held for new students who have completed all admission requirements and for returning students.

3. Late Registration - An open-to-all registration for new, current, and former students regardless of their admissions classification. There is a $30 late fee.




Withdrawing from Courses [+]
click again to collapse

Through the end of the last day of the quarter, a student may withdraw from a course. To withdraw from a course, a student must obtain a Withdrawal Form from his/her advisor, sign and date the form, and submit it to the Office of Student Affairs immediately but no later than the close of the office on the last day of the quarter. This deadline is strictly enforced. Students may also withdraw from a course online via Banner Web at www.laniertech.edu.

A student dropping a course on or after the third instructional day of the quarter, but by the midpoint date of the quarter, will receive a grade of "W."

Note: An instructional day is based on the academic calendar, not a student's individual schedule. A student who drops a course after the midpoint date will be assigned a "WP" or "WF." A student who withdraws from a course prior to the first day of the quarter or during the three day drop period will be due a refund of tuition (see Refund Policy). Students on financial aid should be aware that a drop or withdrawal after the three day drop period may affect their financial aid.

Withdrawing from the Institution [+]
click again to collapse

Through the end of the last scheduled class day of the quarter, a student may drop all courses thus withdrawing for the quarter. To withdraw for the quarter, a student must obtain a Withdrawal Form from his/her advisor, sign and date the form, and submit it to the Office of Student Affairs immediately. The Withdrawal Form must be turned in to the Office of Student Affairs no later than the close of the office on the last day of the quarter. A student who withdraws may be due a refund of tuition and fees (see Refund Policy).

This deadline is strictly enforced. If a student withdraws prior to the fourth instructional day of the quarter, no grade will appear on the student's official academic record. A student who withdraws after the third instructional day of the quarter will be assigned a grade of "W" in each class if the withdrawal is completed by the midpoint date of the quarter. A student who withdraws after the midpoint date will be assigned a grade of "WP" or "WF" if the withdrawal is submitted to the Office of Student Affairs by the close of the office on the last day of the quarter.

Note: An instructional day is based on the academic calendar, not a student's individual schedule.

Note: Students who stop attending a class, but do not complete a Withdrawal Form and submit it to the Office of Student Affairs in the required manner, will remain on the class roll and will be assigned an appropriate grade on the final class roll based on the class requirements. It is the student's and not the instructor's responsibility to complete and submit this form.
