Late Add/Late Registration

After web registration for Spring 2021 2nd part of term has closed, you may request to add or register using the Schedule Adjustment form. Submit your Schedule Adjustment form and any necessary supporting documentation in a TigerHelp request.

  1. Complete the Student Information section of the Schedule Adjustment form. Enter your course requests in the Added Courses section. Include a reason for your late add request in the Reason section. Your signature is not required on the form if you submit it through TigerHelp, as you must log in to be able to submit the request.

  2. Request approval from the instructor of each course you would like to add. Instructor approval is required in order for the Registrar's Office to attempt registration. We will accept an email from the instructor indicating approval provided the email is sent from the instructor's official University of Memphis email account. You can attach the approval email to the ticket along with your form. 
    Note: If you want to late add a TN eCampus course (a section that starts with R), Mary Ewart, at mewart@memphis.edu, will make the decision whether or not to approve. 

  3. Attach the form and any necessary documentation to the TigerHelp request. Choose the Schedule Adjustment/Late Adds option.

  4. If the instructor approved, the Registrar’s Office will attempt to register you in the course. If a permit is needed, an automatic email will be sent to you with information about requesting a permit. Your advisor will also be notified. When the department enters the permit, you will receive an automatic email. The Registrar's Office will complete registration at that time.

  5. You will receive an email from the Registrar's Office when you have been registered in the course.


Academic Standing and Late Registration

All students who are on probation or suspension and have not registered for any classes by January 22, 2021 will have a registration hold placed on their student account. Students on probation or suspension should talk to their advisor about second part of term class offerings to ensure student success.

Late Registration Policy (per Undergraduate Academic Catalog)

The University of Memphis allows late registration for a short period of time after the regular registration period has ended. The dates and deadlines vary by semester and can be determined by consulting the appropriate semester within the "Dates & Deadlines" calendar of the University’s academic calendar. This policy only applies to students whose academic status is Good Standing or Academic Warning.

Students on Academic Probation, transferring on Probation, or returning from Academic Suspension, who are admitted to the University of Memphis but have not enrolled in classes, must be registered for classes prior to the first day of class. Research on the impact of registering late for classes has generally concluded that late registrants have higher course withdrawal rates, lower grade point averages, and lower retention rates. In an effort to retain students, improve academic success, and decrease the number of students placed on Academic Suspension, the University of Memphis recognizes that registering before classes begin is essential to promoting those goals.
