How can I find out what courses are available each semester?
In order to check for course availability, we suggest that you use the Schedule of Classes located here on our web site.
What if I have pre-registered for classes and now I realized that I won’t be able to attend, what do I do?
You need to cancel your registration before the first day of class so you can receive 100% of your tuition back. After the first day of class, the student must contact each instructor and obtain verification of non-attendance in each registered course by a memo from each instructor on the department letterhead, or by having each instructor forward an email verifying non-attendance to the Office of the Registrar. You can do this by faxing a cancellation of registration form to the Office of Student Financial Aid at (256) 372-5407 or coming to the Registrar’s Office to fill out the cancellation of registration form, submitting it to the Office of Student Financial Aid for approval, and returning the form to the Registrar's Office located in room 204 Patton Hall. If you attend one class, then it becomes a withdrawal and you will lose a percentage of your tuition.
What happens if I apply for graduation, but do not clear?
You will need to re-apply for graduation for the semester or term you plan to complete graduation requirements. Undergraduate students will need to check with their Academic Coordinator and Graduate students will need to check with the Graduate Studies office concerning this matter.
