Registration for Current Students

Registration for current Samford University students will be guided by their respective advisors. Online registration (through Banner Self-Service) continues up through the last day to add/drop for each term.

The add/drop dates for the current academic year are shown within the academic calendar, but are also available on the Registration Schedule page for 2014-2015.

Students can add/drop courses via the Web through the last day to add or drop online for that semester. After that deadline, students can no longer add classes, but can still drop a course with a W grade (also known as a course withdrawal).  In order to do this, students are required to complete a Course Withdrawal Form and bring the completed and signed form to Student Records for processing.

Signatures of the student, his/her advisor, and instructor(s) of the course(s) being dropped are required. Additional signatures may be required, such as that of an Athletics Department representative (if the student is an athlete). Student-athletes who drop below full-time risk losing eligibility to compete, practice, or participate in any athletic-related activities. 

NOTE: For any student, dropping below full-time status can impact financial aid, scholarships, and/or insurance coverage. Please also note that deadlines and details are subject to change. 

Students seeking to add a course after the add/drop deadline will need to complete the Academic Petition Form. See that form for the specific signatures required and bring the completed and signed form to Student Records for processing.
