Dates to Remember - Fall Semester 2019

Important Semester Dates | Refunds and Drop/Add Dates | Billing Due Dates

Remember to register as early as possible. Your registration may not be entered on the same day you send it in to the UNITE office. "Requests for Graduate Credit for Non-degree Students" may take several days because they are sent over to the Registrar's office for approval. "Non-Degree Undergraduate" and "Change of College" can take a week, or longer, to be entered because they are sent over to the admissions office. You may also have to work with different offices to clear holds. The closer to the beginning of school, the longer the registration process takes as overall office traffic picks up.

Access to streaming video may take up to 24 hours after student is officially registered. This means late registrations may not have immediate access to streaming video when school starts.

You will need to check your account for the amount you owe through the MyFianances Tab of the MyU portal (http://z.umn.edu/myfinances Image to indiate a link to a web page outside the UNITE web site, which opens in a new window.), the University does NOT send out a new bill.

UNITE follows the University policies and deadlines for course cancels, adds, withrawals and refunds. Please refer to the University's information through OneStop page regarding this information (https://onestop.umn.edu/dates-and-deadlines/canceladd-deadlines Image to indiate a link to a web page outside the UNITE web site, which opens in a new window.). For summer courses, note that there are different calendars for six- and eight-week courses and that the timelines are accelerated to reflect the shortened semester timeline.

Students must get instructor approval if adding a course after deadline dates which require instructor signature. For additons and cancellations, the UNITE office will get the college's permission to make the change for Graduate and Undergraduate Non-Degree students (those not formally enrolled in a program). Graduate and Undergraduate students enrolled in a program must get permission from both the college.

Students enrolled in courses through UNITE may use our Course Cancellation Form to cancel a course taken through our office.
