New Registration & Payment Policies

Parkland College has instituted the following changes to its registration and payment policies, effective fall 2014.

New Registration Deadline:
Beginning fall semester 2014, Parkland College will no longer accept late registrations, which students traditionally make during the first week of classes. Registration will now close at 11:59 p.m. on the Tuesday before each academic session begins.

New Payment Deadline:
Payment for all pre-registered classes must be received by 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday, July 29. Payment for classes acquired after July 29 will be due by 11:59 p.m. on the Tuesday before each academic session begins. Otherwise, pre-registered classes will be dropped due to nonpayment, and students will not be able to re-register for the dropped classes.
(NOTE: Payments not made online must be received by 5 p.m.)

  • Students may withdraw with a grade of W (no refund) beginning the second Monday of the session. The last date for students to withdraw with a "W" is 5 p.m. on the last business day prior to the last week of the session. These must be done in person at Admissions.
  • Students will be allowed to make section and course changes Wednesday through Friday of the week before a session begins.
  • Auditing a class: Students auditing a class will be able to enroll until 11:59 p.m. the Tuesday before the class starts.
     
    Parkland College wants to set students up to succeed.
    Our institutional studies show us that students who register on time are more successful in college than those who register late; they have higher grade point averages and stay in school at higher rates. The new deadlines are intended to improve the chances that students will arrive on the first day of classes focused and ready to engage, rather than distracted by securing finances, buying textbooks, or arranging housing and/or transportation.
