Registration 

 

TCSPP requires all students to maintain continuous enrollment during the full academic year (fall, spring, and summer terms/semesters) either on their home campus or a host campus. The home campus is the campus in which the student is actively enrolled. A host campus may be any other TCSPP campus or an institution with which TCSPP has an approved dual or joint degree program. All students are expected to register for courses prior to the start of the related term/semester and ​academic year.. See the "Registration" section of the Student Handbook for more details.  


 Registration

​​​On-Ground
TCSPP has a self-registration system set up to ensure an easy and efficient registration process for each of​ your courses.  An on-ground student must register for courses each semester during the designated registration period as published on the Academic Calendar to avoid a late registration fee or administrative withdrawal. Courses are available on a first-come, first-served basis. TCSPP does not maintain wait lists for closed courses.

An on-ground student will be notified of the designated registration date(s) and times available via myChicagoSchool. A student's registration time is based on the total credit hours earned as of the prior semester. One week prior to Open Registration period begins, student will receive an email for preview the course schedule.  Course schedule information is available through MyChicagoSchool by clicking "My Courses" and then "View My Schedule".  During the Open Registration period, students may register for courses and​ modify their course schedule. Once Open Registration ends, online registration closes, and the Add/Drop period begins. Questions regarding course schedule and/or registration can be directed to Student Support Counselor at 800.595.6938.  ​

Information on first semester registration for a new on-ground student is contained in the academic program Welcome Letter posted to myChicagoSchool. The new student must register for courses by logging into the Academic Portal. A new student who is admitted during the Add/Drop period must work with Admissions to obtain the approval of the Department Chair to register for courses.​

Online
All online programs have a pre-determined course sequence, and an online student is registered by the institution following that sequence. A student is registered multiple terms in advance, and the course schedule is available through myChicagoSchool.

A new student who is admitted during the Add/Drop period must work with their Student Support Counselor to obtain the approval of the Department Chair to be registered for courses.  This information is available through myChicagoSchool by clicking "My Courses" and then "View My Schedule". Questions regarding course scheduling and/or registration can be directed to your Student Support Counselor at 800-595-6938.​​​

Add/Drop

The Add/Drop period begins on the first day of the term/semester and ends on the first Sunday of the term/semester. For new students, the Add/Drop period is the cancellation period.

During Add/Drop, a student may register for additional courses or remove courses from the course schedule. Department Chair approval is required for adding or dropping courses during the Add/Drop period. A student may request to add or drop a course by completing and submitting the Add/Drop Form prior to the Add/Drop deadline. An Add/Drop fee is charged per form submitted. After the Add/Drop deadline, courses may not be added to the course schedule.​

​After the Add/Drop deadline, a student who wishes to drop a course must complete and submit an Add/Drop Form to the Student Support Counselor​. A student who drops a course after the Add/Drop deadline will receive a grade per the Administrative Grade policy. Dropping a course after the Add/Drop deadline may result in a prorated refund of tuition per the Refund Policy and may have financial aid implications.  See the "Registration" section of the Student Handbook for more details.   ​
