|Graduate Catalog StKate.edu|
New students receive registration instructions in the mail prior to the start of the term for which they have been accepted. (See the "Graduate Admission" section of this catalog for specific program admission requirements.)
Returning students register during assigned registration periods prior to the start of each term. Registration dates are listed online on the Office of the Registrar website and in KateWay. All degree and certificate program students, with the exception of MSW students, register online in KateWay. MSW students register with the University of St. Thomas. Non-degree students must complete a paper registration form.
All course descriptions are listed in this catalog and in the online class schedule. Course requisites, if any, are listed at the end of each course description. The terms are defined below:
- Prerequisite: must be taken prior to the upper-level course
- Prerequisite with concurrency: may be taken either prior to or the same term as the upper-level course
- Corequisite: must be taken the same term as the accompanying course
In some instances, at the instructor's discretion, you may be granted permission to register for a course without having completed the requisites. Complete the online form (available in KateWay) to request a registration override.
You are cautioned to attend the first class session of each course for which you register, as instructors are free to reassign spaces to students when there are unexcused absences.
ADDING AND DROPPING COURSES
You may add or drop courses online until published deadlines. After the deadline, you may add (instructor permission required) or drop courses through the Registrar's Office.
The academic calendars contain the deadlines for dropping a course without notation on the transcript. Courses dropped between this date and the last day to withdraw result in a W (Withdrawal) notation on the transcript. Courses dropped after the last day to withdraw automatically receive a grade of F. You are financially responsible for every course for which you register; the amount of tuition refunded for a dropped/withdrawn course is established by deadlines found online in the Summary of Financial Procedures. You are expected to read this publication and adhere to published deadlines.
