A Great Opportunity

As a member of the Online Consortium of Independent Colleges and Universities (OCICU), CSE students have the opportunity to register for online courses that are given by various regionally accredited colleges/universities who are members of the OCICU. These courses will be counted into the student's academic course load for that semester.

An undergraduate student taking 9 CSE credits and 3 credits through the OCICU will be considered full-time. When the course is complete, a letter grade will be awarded, the grade will be entered on the CSE transcript and calculated into the student's GPA (grade point average).

Prior to Registration

If you are completing a registration form, it must be signed by the student's advisor(s) before it will be processed by the Registrar's Office. The Undergraduate and Graduate registration forms can be downloaded here.

Course schedules for Drew and Fairleigh Dickinson Universities are available at and Any student planning to cross register at Drew or Fairleigh Dickinson must complete a Cross Registration form. These forms can be downloaded here, and should be submitted to the CSE Registrar's Office.

You must be registered for 12 CSE credits before cross registering.

Students are responsible for knowing which courses are required to complete their major and the rules and regulations of the College. This information is available in the College Catalog. While all students have an academic advisor, the student is expected to assume responsibility for their progress and degree completion.

Wait List Information

The wait list will be in class order, which means Seniors will have first priority. If you are on a wait list for a class and a seat becomes available, you will receive an email letting you know that a seat is available and that you have five days to add yourself into the class. If you miss the deadline for that available seat, the computer will automatically make that seat available for the next person on the wait list. You must check your CSE email account frequently!

After Registration


During the first week of classes students can drop and add courses to their schedule. Students must complete an Add/Drop form and obtain the signature of their advisor(s). Refer to the academic calendar (which can be located on Self Service) for the dates of the drop/add period for all College divisions.


Following the add/drop period students are permitted to withdraw from a class with the permission of their Advisor and their Dean or their Program Director (for Graduate students). These courses are assigned a grade of "W" on the student's transcript. Refer to the academic calendar for the dates of the withdrawal period for each College division. A Withdrawal form needs to be submitted to the Registrar's Office.

Non-payment of tuition and/or non-attendance in a course does not constitute acceptable withdrawal. All necessary paperwork must be filed with the Registrar's Office.

Students who are cross-registered at Drew or Fairleigh Dickinson Universities withdraw from courses according to the above procedure.


Undergraduate students with senior and junior standing who are full-time may elect to take one course each semester on a pass/fail basis. Sophomores may elect to take one course a year pass/fail.

Matriculated part-time students with sophomore standing (25-57 credits) may take one course as pass/fail throughout the duration of their sophomore standing. Part-time students with junior standing (58-87 credits) may take two courses as pass/fail throughout the duration of their junior standing, with no more than one pass/fail course per semester. Part-time students with senior standing (88 or more credits) may take two courses as pass/fail throughout the duration of their senior standing, with no more than one pass/fail course per semester.

In order to register for a course on a pass/fail basis, students must have no grade below "C" in the preceding year. Courses used to fulfill the general education cluster requirements, the major or a minor may not be taken on a pass/fail basis.

Students may register for one course on a pass/fail basis in the Registrar's Office on the dates specified in the College calendar. The Pass/Fail form needs to be submitted.

Once a student has designated a course pass/fail, they cannot change that decision.

Attending Classes Without Registering

Students are not permitted to attend classes without being registered. The last day for students to register in any semester is the last day of the add/drop period. Students will not be registered for classes after the final day of the add/drop period. This applies for all divisions.

Please check the Academic Calendar for dates.

Cancellations/Course Changes

The College reserves the right to cancel any course, revise subject matter or content, and alter schedules (meeting days and/or times, buildings, rooms or instructors).
