The friendships and professional relationships that you will develop during your time at Central will remain valuable assets to draw upon as you pursue your education and professional interests. The CWU Registrar Services team in Ellensburg, along with staff members at each of our University Centers, are here to assist you with your registration needs. We have created this Registration Handbook to outline the policies, procedures, and important deadlines that will help keep you on track throughout the coming year. As you browse through the handbook, you will find everything from Safari web registration instructions to a list of academic advisors. This handbook should be retained for one academic year; you may also find the book on the registrarâ€™s home page at www.cwu.edu/registrar. If you have any questions regarding registration, or if you need help navigating through Safari, please contact Registrar Services or your University Center office. I look forward to seeing you on campus.

Inside Back Cover www.cwu.edu Central Washington University Registration Handbook STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES PLEASE READ BEFORE REGISTERING FOR COURSES FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS SCHEDULE CONFIRMATION Admission to, or registration with the university, conferring of degrees, and issuance of academic transcripts may be withheld for failure to meet financial obligations to the university. It is the studentâ€™s responsibility to ensure that his/her account is kept current. A student may register online utilizing Safari. By navigating to Safari and selecting Student Center > Academics > Enrollment > My Class Schedule, a student can obtain a listing of his/her class schedule. Students should check their schedules carefully for discrepancies. Students are responsible for ensuring that the courses they select will fulfill degree requirements. Students may be prevented from registering for courses without the necessary corequisites or prerequisites and may ultimately be dropped from the course. Students should review enrollment requirements in the online catalog at www.cwu.edu/~catalogs. Unless otherwise indicated by the student, payments received for students will be applied in the following priority: 1) Oldest charge 2) Tuition and course fees 3) Housing and dining charges 4) Other charges Registration, online via the web or in person, obligates students for payment of all tuition and course fees. If tuition and fees are not paid by the due date, students will be assessed a late fee and will be liable for any other reasonable collection costs. Holds will be placed on accounts that are 30 days past due. Students may check with the Cashiers Office at 509-963-2224 to obtain the exact amount of tuition and fees due. Do not wait for a statement of account. See tuition rates and fees. Students may access their statement on Safari (Student Financials, Admissions, Financial Aid, Academic Progress, and Records Information System) located at www.cwu.edu. From the CWU home page, select Wildcat Connection, then click on Safari. DROP BY INSTRUCTOR If a student fails to attend a class by 5:00 p.m. on the third day of classes or the equivalent of three 50-minute increments, the instructor may drop the student from the class. Students enrolled in a web-based class must log in and post a message on Blackboard to be considered in attendance. Students should not assume they will automatically be dropped from a class they do not attend. Students should drop their classes online or with Registrar Services prior to the end of the change of schedule period (the fifth day of the quarter). LATE REGISTRATION FEE A late registration fee will be assessed for each class added after the change of schedule period. Refer to the appropriate academic calendar for deadlines and the late registration fee schedule. Non-attendance DOES NOT relieve students of their academic and financial obligations. ADDRESS INFORMATION Student address information is very important! Addresses can be changed on Safari > Student Center > Personal Information area or in person at Registrar Services. Important materials are mailed periodically to all students throughout the quarter. OFFICIAL E-MAIL NOTIFICATION Registrar Services, Financial Aid, Student Accounts, and other student services use e-mail to notify students of important information. Therefore, it is imperative that students check their CWU e-mail accounts throughout the quarter. For information on your student e-mail account, go to www.cwu.edu/~its. Students are responsible for checking their CWU e-mail for important notices. www.cwu.edu _______________________________________ Central Washington University is an AA/EEO/Title IX Institution.

Payments, Tuition, Fees www.cwu.edu Central Washington University Registration Handbook GENERAL REGULATION AND INFORMATION CLASSIFICATION OF STUDENTS Graduates Class rank is based upon the number of quarter hours earned as follows: Freshman 0 44.9 Sophomore 45 89.9 Junior 90 - 134.9 Senior 135 and above Credits Status 5-6 Half time 7-9 Three-quarter time 10 or more Full time 15 Standard load NUMBERING OF COURSES 17-19 Overload (approval needed from major department chair or dean) Courses are numbered as follows: 20 or more Overload (approval needed from college or graduate dean) Freshman Sophomore Junior Senior Graduate 100 through 199 200 through 299 300 through 399 400 through 499 500 through 700 Non-matriculated Students Students may select courses one year ahead of their present status except when otherwise designated. Courses numbered 500 and above are normally for graduate students. Senior students may take 500-level courses only with the approval of both the department chair and the instructor of the class. The 500-level courses may be used for undergraduate credit or graduate credit (but not for both). In order to receive graduate credit, the student must be in his/her senior year of undergraduate work and must obtain approval from the Associate Vice President of Graduate Studies, Research, and Continuing Education. Students who are registering for courses as a nonmatriculated student can register for a maximum of 12 credits during the fall, winter, and spring terms. Nonmatriculated students may register on the first day of classes. Financial Aid and Veterans Assistance STUDENT LOAD POLICY The number of credits for which a student is fully registered determines full-time and part-time status. Note that a GPA of 2.8 or higher is recommended for students seeking an overload. Undergraduate or Post-Baccalaureate Credits Status 6-8 Half time 9-11 Three-quarter time 12 or more Full time 15 Standard load 19-20 Overload (approval needed from major advisor and major department chair, or in the case of undeclared majors, Academic Advising) 21 or more Overload (approval needed from major advisor and major department chair as well as the appropriate school dean, or in the case of undeclared majors, the assistant vice president for undergraduate studies) www.cwu.edu Non-matriculated status is given to those persons who are not seeking degrees or certificates at CWU. Nonmatriculated students do not need to go through the regular admissions process; they apply through Registrar Services and will be allowed to register on a space-available basis. Credits earned when in non-matriculated status may not be used to satisfy degree or certificate requirements unless the student matriculates, in which case a maximum of 45 credits may be applied toward a baccalaureate degree. Undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students must carry 12-quarter credit hours to be considered full-time students. Graduate students must carry 10-quarter credits. Students receiving Veteran GI Bill education benefits must also carry the same credit load to be a full-time student; however, the credits must be in their degree program. Students using the GI Bill education benefits should contact the Veterans Center for further information to be in compliance with VA federal regulations to receive benefits. REGISTRATION Only currently enrolled matriculating students are allowed to register during the first registration period. Nonmatriculating students may register on the first day of classes. Eligible students are assigned an Enrollment Appointment on Safari that specifies their date and time for registration. See instructions for viewing Enrollment Appointments. Student employees must register during the first registration period to be eligible for summer employment. General Regulation and Information Page 13 Central Washington University Registration Handbook Freshman Advising Hold Freshmen, classified as any student who has less than 40 earned credits, will have an advising hold placed on their account prior to registration. Freshmen must contact the Academic Advising Center or their academic advisor prior to registration in order to have the hold removed. General Education Basic Skills Hold Students will have a hold placed on their account if they have not completed the basic skills area of the general education requirements by the time they reach 75 credits. Students must see their major advisor or if they are undeclared, an advisor in the Academic Advising Center, to have the hold removed. This hold will be placed every quarter until the basic skills are completed. 75-Credit Advising Hold All students will have an advising hold placed on their account the quarter after they have earned their 75th credit. To have this hold removed a student must meet with their major advisor or an advisor in the Academic Advising Center. 115-Credit Advising Hold All students will have an advising hold placed on their account the quarter after they have earned their 115th credit. To have this hold removed a student must meet with their major advisor or an advisor in their intended major. Major Declaration Hold This hold is placed on a student who has 100 or more earned credits and is not admitted into a major or pre-major program. All of these holds, with the exception of the major hold, can be released by any faculty member or professional academic advisor. All freshmen must go to Academic Advising before next-term registration. WAIT LISTS Students should be aware that the system will automatically enroll them in a course for which they have wait listed once a seat becomes available and if they are eligible to enroll. Not all courses have wait lists, so students should review the Schedule of Classes to determine which courses have wait lists. Important information regarding wait lists is summarized below. 1. Each department determines its wait list (WL) capacity. Each section with a wait list has a different maximum number of students allowed on the WL at the same time. 2. The student gets on the wait list at the time he/she attempts to enroll in a full course section by checking the “OK to Wait List” checkbox that will be displayed when enrolling in a class. If there is no WL or the WL is full, the “OK to Wait List” checkbox will not appear as an option. A student can be moved from the WL to enrolled status in one of two ways: • Obtain signed permission on an add/drop form from the instructor. Page 14 • System intervention: An automated nightly process will automatically move students from the WL to enrollment, but only if the student is eligible. The wait list process will be run once each night. Notification will be sent to the CWU e-mail account each time the process is run for those who are moved to enrolled status. This will be a general notification alerting students to check their online schedule for details. 3. Students are ineligible to be automatically enrolled from the WL for the following reasons: • They have a time conflict. • They are enrolled in another section of the course. • They would exceed their maximum term units. • They do not meet requirements of the course (e.g., reserved for majors only). • They have a registration hold. • They are attempting to register for a non-repeatable class for the third time. • The class is full. 4. Wait lists will be available through the end of the second day of the Change of Schedule Period. This will allow time for notification to be sent to the student prior to the end of the Change of Schedule Period and allow the student enough time to make necessary schedule changes. 5. Students may not wait list for more than 15 credits at a time. 6. Students are told of their WL positions at the time they are placed on a wait list during their enrollment. They can also view their position at any time by reviewing their online schedule. 7. Students can wait list for multiple sections of the same course. However, once the student is enrolled in an available section, he/she is automatically dropped from the WL for the other sections. The only exception to this would be for courses that are repeatable for credit in the same term. 8. If a lecture course has a zero credit lab, students cannot WL the same lecture section or the same lab section more than once. For example, a student could not WL CHEM 111-01 lecture with more than one CHEM 111 lab section. 9. Once a Wait List is started for a class and a seat opens up, a student who is not on the Wait List will not be able to enroll. However, if all students on the Wait List are ineligible for enrollment, then the class status will change to Open and the next eligible student may enroll. AUDIT Provided that space is available and permission is secured from the instructor, students eligible to enroll in a course for credit may enroll as an auditor (except in laboratory courses). Full tuition is assessed for audits and no credit is earned. When a student class load exceeds nine credits, including the credits of audited courses, regular student fees must be General Regulation and Information www.cwu.edu Central Washington University Registration Handbook paid. A student enrolled in nine credits or less, including audited courses, pays the credit-hour fees. Instructors may not compel auditors to write papers or take examinations but may insist upon other course requirements. The instructor may request of the dean that the auditor be officially withdrawn from the course if these requirements are not met. A student must register for an audited course by the last day of the change of schedule period. CREDIT/NO CREDIT Students are urged to use the credit/no credit option as a way to explore academic areas of interest. All students, except first-quarter freshmen and students on academic probation, may select one class per quarter under this option. A maximum of 15 credits earned in credit/no credit courses may be allowed toward the 180 required for a bachelor’s degree. The courses must be selected from free electives. They must not be courses in general education, major or minor concentrations, or the professional education sequence. Students may designate the course as credit/no credit until the end of the change of schedule period. Courses may not be repeated on a credit/no credit option. Courses may be repeated for a grade. Credits earned under the credit/no credit option are not included in computing grade point averages. The grade recorded on the student’s transcript will be “CR” if the course grade is C- or above; if below C-, the entry will be “NC.” REPETITION OF COURSES Some courses are approved for repetition with credit awarded each time the course is taken and passed. See course descriptions in the university catalog. Full tuition is assessed for all repeated courses. Other courses may be repeated under the following conditions: ADDITIONAL ENROLLMENT PROCEDURES Arranged Course Permits An Arranged Course Permit is used when a student wishes to register for a class that is not offered on the schedule of classes for the term, providing the class is shown in the current catalog. Any class that is currently being offered cannot be registered for as an Arranged Course. Seminar and workshop courses may not be registered for as arranged courses. Permits are available at Registrar Services, university center offices, and academic department offices. The instructor, department chair, and dean must approve the Arranged Course Permit. Individual Study Courses Forms are available at academic departmental offices, Registrar Services, and university center offices. Permission must be granted from the instructor, department chair, and dean prior to registration. Complete the form, including the descriptive title and course outline. Once the appropriate signatures have been obtained, submit the individual study permit to a registration office to complete the registration process. Cooperative Education Cooperative Education Learning Agreement (CLA) forms are available at academic department offices and Career Services (Bouillon 206). Career Services will also mail a copy of the CLA form to the student. It is advisable to allow at least a week in which to obtain required signatures on the bottom of the form. All parts of the form must be completed before registration will be permitted (including approval signatures and complete mailing addresses). Forms must be submitted to Career Services by the last day of the Change of Schedule Period. Students are responsible for tuition and fees incurred for units for cooperative education. • Students are allowed to take a course a second time. Students attempting to take the same course a third time may do so only with permission of the instructor and the department chair. Unless designated as repeatable, courses may not be taken more than three times without permission of the dean of the college and department chair. • Credit will be awarded only once, the last time the course is taken. • When a course is repeated, only the last grade earned will be used in the computation of the cumulative and major grade point averages. All grades will remain in the student’s official record. Any CWU course repeated at another institution is subject to the following requirements: 1. May be transferred in for CWU credit. 2. Its grade will be used in calculating the CWU and the transfer GPA. www.cwu.edu General Regulation and Information Page 15 Central Washington University Registration Handbook CREDIT BY EXAMINATION GRADES The university has published a “Course Challenge List” in the general catalog. Regularly enrolled (full fee-paying) students may challenge for credit any course that appears on the current “Course Challenge List.” To challenge a course, the student may be required to take examinations and carry out procedures according to established-by-department practices. Grades are available on Safari three days after the end of the final exam week by navigating to Student Center > Academics > Grades. To challenge a course, the student must first obtain a course challenge form from Registrar Services and follow the specified instructions. Course challenge fees are nonrefundable. The course challenge form must be completed and returned to Registrar Services one week prior to the end of the quarter. Results of the course challenge shall be recorded as “Satisfactory” or “Unsatisfactory” on the student’s transcript and will not be used to compute the GPA. The application for course challenge will be denied if the student has previously received credit for the course at this or another institution, if the course was previously failed or withdrawn from, or if the course was previously unsatisfactorily challenged, audited, or registration cancelled for any reason. PROCEDURE FOR COURSE SUBSTITUTION AND WAIVER OF COURSE REQUIREMENTS Transfer Associate of Science degrees with transfer agreements between the university and Washington community colleges will meet the general education requirements of a bachelor’s degree when students complete additional courses at CWU. Major or Minor The student is required to provide Registrar Services with the substitution form to waive the requirement, signed by the appropriate chair and dean. Substitution forms are available at Registrar Services or at university center offices. Teacher Certification Program The student is required to provide Registrar Services with the substitution form to waive the requirement, signed by the Department of Educational Foundations and Curriculum chair and dean. Substitution forms are available at Registrar Services or at university center offices. Basic, Breadth, or other Graduation Requirements The registrar handles most deviations from the catalog requirements. The general education petition forms are available at Registrar Services or at university center offices. Students are no longer mailed a hard copy of their grade report unless requested. Students may request to have their grades sent to their home/permanent address by filling out a grade report request form available at Registrar Services, University Center offices, or online by clicking forms at www.cwu.edu/registrar/. Requested reports will be mailed two to three weeks after the end of finals week. INCOMPLETES—CWU POLICY An “I” (incomplete) means the student was not able to complete the course by the end of the term, but has satisfactorily completed a sufficient portion of it and can be expected to finish without having to re-enroll in it. An “I” is not used in computing grade point average. The instructor will set a date within one calendar year for the student to complete the coursework. It is the student’s responsibility to contact the instructor and make arrangements to complete the coursework. If the work is not completed by the date set by the instructor, the “I” will convert to an “F” or “U.” Students may not re-register for a course in which they currently have a grade of incomplete. WITHDRAWING Individual Course Withdrawal Policy Students may withdraw from an individual class using an uncontested withdrawal form through the end of the Uncontested Withdrawal Period (see calendar). Such withdrawals will be noted on the student’s transcript with “+W.” No refunds will be granted for individual course withdrawals. Hardship Withdrawal Policy After the Uncontested Withdrawal Period ends, hardship withdrawals will be granted only for reasons of hardship and then only upon written petition to and written approval of the registrar. The student must have discussed the reasons for the withdrawal with the affected faculty member and have obtained the faculty member’s signature on the hardship withdrawal petition. Approved hardship withdrawals will be noted on the student’s transcript with “HW.” No hardship withdrawals from individual courses may be made after the last day of classroom instruction prior to the final exams. All substitution forms are available by clicking on the forms link on the left index of Registrar Services home page at www.cwu.edu/registrar/. Page 16 General Regulation and Information www.cwu.edu Central Washington University Registration Handbook Total Withdrawal from the University Registrar Services or a University Center office may approve a student withdrawal from Central that is due to illness or other extenuating circumstances at any time prior to finals week. A student may not withdraw from the university during finals week except with approval from the registrar. The official withdrawal form is available at Registrar Services and University Center offices. Withdrawals from the university will be noted on the student’s transcript with “W.” Students who leave the university without completing the official form may receive failing grades. LEAVE OF ABSENCE Undergraduate or post-baccalaureate students who do not enroll for consecutive academic quarters (exclusive of summer), and are planning to take a quarter off, must reapply for admission. However, if students meet the criteria below, they may be granted a leave of absence, which means that they do not have to reapply for re-admission the following quarter and that they may register early for classes as continuing students at the designated time. 1. The application for leave of absence must be submitted to Registrar Services at least two weeks prior to the term for which the student is seeking leave. 2. Leaves will be approved only if attending consecutive quarters would present an exceptional hardship or loss of opportunity. 3. Students may be granted for up to two quarters at a time. Additional consecutive quarters must be petitioned separately. Graduate students need to contact the graduate office at 509-963-3103 for leave of absence information.

This Act was developed in response to a proposal that Congress pass legislation requiring schools, colleges, and communities to implement and enforce firm drug prevention and education programs as a condition of eligibility to receive Federal financial assistance. In addition, the Drug-Free Workplace Act (Public Law No. 100690, 5151-5160) requires applicants for federally funded grants and contracts to certify that they will institute affirmative steps to prohibit the unlawful manufacture, distribution, possession, and use of controlled substances in the workplace. Taken together, the DrugFree Schools and Communities Act, the Drug-Free Workplace Act, and Washington State law established the legal requirements to the Central Washington University policy. As a condition of employment at the University, all employees will abide by the terms of this policy and will notify their supervisor of any criminal drug statute conviction for a violation occurring in the workplace no later than five days after the conviction. GENERAL ALCOHOL AND OTHER DRUG STATEMENT Any violations, on or off campus, of state or federal law regarding alcohol or other drugs by students, staff, or faculty are grounds for disciplinary action. Furthermore, according to the Student Conduct Code, students may be subject to disciplinary action for any action that violates state or federal law including but not limited to: • Minor in possession • Minor in consumption • Open container violations • Driving while intoxicated • Possessing or consuming alcohol in an alcohol free residence hall • Providing alcohol to a minor • Possession or sale of any narcotic or drug paraphernalia • Selling alcohol without a license • Misrepresenting ones age to gain access to alcohol • Students violating any state or federal law will result in immediate referral to the Dean of Student Success or designee for disciplinary action. Disciplinary action will range from a counseling session to expulsion, depending on the severity and number of violations. POLICIES AND PROCEDURES The purpose of this section is to briefly summarize the key points of the university policy regarding the distribution, possession, and use of alcohol and other drugs. In order to comply with the requirements of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act and the DrugFree Workplace Act, a complete description of the relevant laws, procedures, sanctions, and prevention information is provided in the addenda that follow this summary. (A) Legal Issues – The university’s policy regarding the possession and consumption of alcohol and other drugs on campus has been developed in keeping with Washington State law and Page 58 the Governor’s policy on alcoholism and drug dependency. Washington State laws are described in the Revised Code of Washington and the Washington Administrative Code. Members of the University community may review these documents at the University library. State laws regulate behavior such as the consumption of alcohol in public places, the furnishing of liquor to minors, the illegal purchase of alcohol, and the distribution of controlled substances, to name a few. A brief description of applicable local, and state, and federal laws is provided in CWU Procedures Manual 4-20-005.6. The university policy assumes that individuals of the University community have read, understood, and agree to abide by these local, state, and federal laws. (B) Proscribed Student Conduct – According to the Washington Administrative Code (WAC 106-120-027), a student shall be subject to disciplinary action or sanction upon violation of any of the following conduct proscriptions: 1. Possession, use, or distribution of any controlled substance as defined by the laws of the United States or the State of Washington except as expressly permitted by law. 2. Violation of the university policy on alcoholic beverages that states: (a) Persons twenty-one years of age or older may possess and/or consume alcoholic beverages within the privacy of certain designated 21 or older residence hall rooms or apartments. Washington State law provides severe penalties for the possession or consumption of alcoholic beverages by persons under twenty-one years of age and for persons who furnish alcoholic beverages to minors. All university students and staff should be aware of these laws and the possible consequences of violations. (b) The University does not condone the consumption of alcoholic beverages by minors at functions sponsored by Central Washington University organizations on or off campus. Organizations and advisors are held responsible for monitoring the conduct of their members at functions sponsored by the organization and for failure to comply with Washington state law and university policies. (c) The Dean of Student Success or designee may place on probation any organization or prohibit a specific campus social function when the consumption of alcoholic beverages has become a problem of concern to the university. 3. Violation of clearly stated proscriptions in any published rule or regulation promulgated by any official campus committee, commission or council acting within the scope of its authority. 4. Violation on or off campus of any state or federal law. Official university action will be taken when violations of state law or university policy regarding alcohol and other illicit drug use occur. Repeated violations usually carry more significant consequences. The Dean of Student Success may include in the sanction-mandated contact with the university drug and alcohol prevention specialist (the Director, Wildcat Wellness Center) and/or direct referral for assessment through a state licensed treatment agency. Please refer to CWU Procedures Manual 4-20-005.4 for licensed agencies in Kittitas County. CWU Alcohol and Drug Policy www.cwu.edu Central Washington University Registration Handbook If alcohol or other drug abuse is a related factor in the violation of other proscribed conduct, the same mandate may be considered appropriate. Official university sanctions range from “warning” to “expulsion” and are described in detail in CWU Procedures Manual 4-20-005.1. (C) Proscribed Employee Conduct – As a condition of employment at the university, all employees will abide by the terms of the Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988 that prohibits the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing, possession, or use of a controlled substance in the university workplace. This Act also requires that employees notify their supervisor of any criminal drug statute conviction for a violation occurring in the workplace no later than 5 days after the conviction. In addition, university employees (i.e., faculty, staff, administrators, and student employees) are obligated to work effectively and cooperatively in their positions. Responsibility to improve substandard performance or to correct unacceptable work behavior rests with the individual employee, regardless of the underlying causative factors or circumstances that may be present. While alcoholism and/or other drug dependencies may be among the factors contributing to an employee’s job performance problems, it remains the responsibility of the individual employee to seek appropriate treatment.
