Late Add/Late Registration

After web registration has closed, you may request to add or register by submitting a TigerHelp request. Instructor approval is required in order for the Registrar's Office to attempt registration.

  1. Request approval from the instructor of each course you would like to add. Include course information (CRN, course, section, etc.) in your email to the instructor. You will be attaching the instructor's approval to the TigerHelp request.
    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. 

  2. Login to TigerHelp. Select the Schedule Adjustment/Late Adds category. Complete the fields. Attach a screenshot of the instructor's approval for each course you are adding. Submit your request.

  3. The Registrar’s Office will attempt to register you in the course(s) you indicated. 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.

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

  5. You will also receive information about your TigerHelp request via emails from umtech.


Academic Standing and Late Registration

All students who are on probation or suspension and have not registered for any classes by the last day of the first week of classes 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.
