NEW Late Enrollment Policy for Face-to-Face Classes

Dear Students,

Lansing Community College has implemented a new Late Enrollment Policy effective Fall 2014 (to see the Late Enrollment policy in its entirety, please click here and select “Late Enrollment Policy for Face-to-Face Classes” listed under the heading “Registration Information”).

What does this new policy mean for you?

  • Students who wish to enroll in a class before the first class session begins have enrollment priority over students who wish to enroll in a class after the first class session will have started. So, be sure to register for your classes early! (Online registration is now available until 10 minutes prior to the start of the first class session.)
  • Please be aware that instructors have the authority to drop students who are enrolled but who are not in attendance on the first day of class. Therefore, if you are enrolled in a class already, be sure to attend the first session of the class, or, if you are unable to attend, communicate with your instructor prior to the start of the first class session if you would like to remain in the class.
  • Priority for late enrollment is given to students on the waitlist in the order in which students’ names appear on the waitlist. If a seat becomes available, it is offered to the student whose name is at the top of the waitlist if the student attends the first class session. Students who are on the waitlist but who do not attend the first class session will have their names removed from the waitlist and lose their priority status.
  • Instructors have the authority to enroll students late within the first one or two weeks of the class, depending on the length of the class. Beyond that, a dean’s signature is also required.
  • Students must meet all other requirements for the class in order to be eligible to enroll in the class (for example, they must have satisfied course prerequisites, if applicable, and they must have met their financial responsibility for enrolling in the class).

If you are not enrolled in a class prior to the start of the first class session, you must attend the first class session and request the instructor’s permission to enroll in the class.
Please contact your instructor if you have questions.

Best wishes for a terrific and successful academic year!
