Need to Know Information

Wait List

When a class is full, you have the option to add yourself to its wait list to be notified if a seat becomes available. The wait list is shut off the night before the first day of the semester. Wait listing is not available for late start courses.

Open Seat Notification

You will be notified at your Century College email address as your position on the wait list moves up. Once you are offered a seat in your wait list class, you have exactly 24 hours to register (the email will indicate your registration deadline). It is extremely important that you monitor your email closely so you do not miss your wait list opening.

Being able to add yourself to a wait list does not mean you will be eligible to register for the class if a seat becomes available. Be sure to resolve all holds, verify in eServices you will pass course prerequisites, and remove all other registration barriers in advance so that you can register when a wait listed seat is offered to you. Wait listed seats become available 24 hours a day, including weekends. During non-business hours staff may not be available to assist you. You cannot be returned to your original place on the wait list if you fail to register during the 24 hour window.

Viewing Wait Listed Classes

View your wait listed classes in eServices:

  1. Click on Courses & Registration
  2. Click on Review My Plan

Your plan also displays your position on the wait list and allows you to remove yourself from the wait lists of courses you no longer want.

Credit Limits

If you want to register for more than 18 credits, you will need to complete an Exceed Maximum 18 Credit Limit Appeal form for approval by the Registrar.

Adding, Dropping, & Withdrawing

Adding a Course(s)

Courses may be added the first 5 days of spring and fall semesters (an instructor's signature is required after the third day) and the first 3 days of the summer session (an instructor's signature is required on the Add/Drop/Withdraw form once the class has started). You are required to pay all tuition and fees for any registered courses.

Adding Courses Throughout the Semester

You may add courses that start later in the semester (such as courses in Session II or III) before the course begins without instructor approval. After a class has already started, late adds will be processed only with the approval/signatures of the instructor on the Add/Drop/Withdraw form.

Dropping a Course(s)

You may drop a course during the first 5 days of fall, spring and summer semesters. Full refunds are only available prior to the term start or during the five-day drop period each term for courses starting the first week, except as specified in the Refund Policy. You may drop a late start/fast track course only through the day after the first scheduled class day to receive a full refund.

Withdrawing from a Course(s)

Course withdrawals ("W" grades) begin on the sixth day of the term, unless noted otherwise in the course schedule. For late start/fast track courses, withdrawals begin two days after first scheduled date. The last day to withdraw date varies; it displays on students online schedule and on the course search details. See the Refund Policy for details.

Classes that you have withdrawn from become part of your permanent record and will appear on your transcript.

*Instructors signatures are not required within the withdrawal deadline.

  • You should withdraw after you stop attending a course or you will likely receive a grade of "F" or "FW" (faculty withdrawal).
  • If you withdraw after 20 days, you can visit until final exam week with the instructor's approval.
  • Withdrawals do not influence GPA, but negatively impact academic progress.

If extenuating circumstances prevent you from withdrawing by the deadline, you may fill out a Late Withdrawal Petition form in the Business Office, Room 2340, West Campus or pick up a form at the Records Office, Room 2220, West Campus. You may complete the online Refund or Late Withdrawal Petition Form and email it to the Business Office at busoffice@century.edu. Supporting documentation should be submitted with the petition form. Additional documentation may be required.

Important: There are four ways you can add, drop or withdraw from a course:

  • Login to eServices
  • In-person at the Records Office with your StarID or student ID
  • Written request with your signature by U.S. mail received prior to the deadline.
  • Fill out the Add/Drop/Withdraw form online

Please note: A telephone message request is not considered a valid processing method.

Since withdrawing from a class can impact your academic progress, we recommend that you consult with a Century College advisor/counselor before your make your final decision. Poor academic progress may lead to academic probation and eventually suspension. It may also impact your financial aid. Please familiarize yourself with the Satisfactory Academic Progress for Financial Aid.

You are required to pay tuition and fees unless you drop classes by the deadline. Century College will not drop courses for non-attendance. Faculty withdrawal or FN (faculty reported never attended) grades are not eligible for refunds. See the Refund Policy for details.
