Registration and Adding Courses

New students register during their Advising and Registration session (consult the Advising and Registration section of this catalog for complete information). For currently enrolled students and students who have previously attended Normandale, summer and fall registration begins mid-spring semester, and spring registration begins mid-fall semester. Students are assigned a registration time (or window) based on the number of credits they have earned. Students can determine their registration window from eServices or the Registration Guide, which is available on the Records Office website.

With the exception of those students who are enrolled in programs that require an advisor or counselor’s written approval prior to registration, students register using eServices. Registration instructions are available in the Registration Guide, at www.normandale.edu/records or from the Records Office.

For classes offered during the fall and spring semesters, students can register and add classes through the fifth day of the term (for full-semester classes) or the first business day following the first class period (for weekend classes and classes that do not meet the full semester). For classes offered during the summer, students can register and add classes through the third day of the late May/early June session (the first session of the summer semester) or the first business day following the first class period (whichever is later).

Adding Classes After the First Day
Although College policy allows students to add classes through the fifth day of the semester (or the third day of the summer semester), not all courses are designed to accommodate students who miss the first or subsequent class meeting(s). Students are advised to consult the instructor before adding a class after it has started.
