Methods of Registration

Being advised does not mean you are registered in any courses. Make sure all tuition, fees or other charges from previous semesters have been paid in full.

Current students enroll for classes based on their student classification. Students are classified by the number of credit hours completed counting toward graduation prior to the first day of the term in session when enrollment occurs:
96 or more hours Fourth Year
64-95 hours Third Year
32-63 hours Second Year
0-31 hours First Year

During the first four days of registration, current and readmitted students may register as follows:

1st Day

.

Fourth Year and Postbaccalaureate Students
2nd Day Third Year and above
3rd Day Second Year and above
4th Day First Year and above

 

.

Note: New students should contact the Admissions Office for registration dates.


A current student may verify their student classification on-line via MyAU. Readmitted students may stop by or call the registration Office for their student classification. Students who have recently completed courses at another institution should visit the Registration Office to verify receipt of transcripts and their classification prior to the first day of registration. Transcripts may take several months to be received and entered into the registration system which may affect your student classification at enrollment time.

Once you have met with your advisor you will be eligible to enroll if you have no holds (financial, library, athletic) on your account.

You must enroll for courses by using one of the following options:

In-Person Registration
Any student may bring their advising form to the Registration Office in Blasco Hall to enroll in courses. See the Academic Calendar for appropriate dates and times.

Telephone Registration

If you are a new or readmitted student unable to come to the Registration Office, you may enroll in courses by being advised by your advisor via telephone. Your advisor will then bring your advising form to the Registration Office and enroll for you.

Current students may enroll via telephone after being advised by your advisor. Have your student ID number or social security number and the department, course title and section number of courses in which you want to enroll in front of you before you call to register. Call (816) 501-2410 during the designated telephone registration dates and hours in the Academic Calendar.

Online Registration
Any admitted currently enrolled student without a hold on their student account may enroll via online registration.  See you Advisor for details.  See the Academic Calendar for appropriate dates and times.

Late Registration
(see Academic Calendar for dates) Late registration must be completed in person. There is a $25 fee for registering late with the exception of weekend intensive and Saturday only courses.

Registration for Non-Degree Seeking Students

Avila offers a special enrollment process for all students not seeking an Avila degree. No transcript or formal application is necessary. You may register at the Registration Office for most courses. To register for a course numbered 310 or above, students must meet with a faculty advisor. High school juniors and seniors, home schooled students, visiting students from other institutions as well as individuals simply wishing to enrich their educational background are encouraged to take advantage of this convenient opportunity. Students who enroll through this program are limited to a total of nine credit hours at Avila before they must request formal admission.

We recommend that visiting students request written permission from their own institution in advance of their registration at Avila in order to be sure that the Avila course work will transfer. The following non-degree seeking students do not have to apply for admission through the Admissions
Office. They may register directly at the Registration Office during registration hours:

»   Accepted Non-Degree
»   Area Exchange
»   Non-Credit
»   Dual-Enrollee (high school student)
»   Enrichment
»   Visiting

Non-Credit Registration

Courses at Avila may be taken for non-credit on a space-available basis. Since no academic credit is awarded, students are not required to meet the admission requirements of the institution. A stipulation of the noncredit option is mandatory class attendance. The level of class participation for non-credit is determined by the individual instructor. A certificate from Avila will be awarded to those who have met the non-credit requirements of the course.

Enrollment for this option begins in the Registration Office during published In-Person Registration days and times. Enrollment in a lower division course for non-credit requires the appropriate prerequisites but does not require departmental approval. Enrollment in an upper-division course (number 310 or above) on the noncredit option must have the approval of the department offering the course. A signature from the departmental faculty representative is required. If a student withdraws from a course taken for non-credit, a refund will be granted according to the time frame for part-time students minus a $10 administrative fee.


Area Exchange Program

If you enroll at Avila, you also have access to the curricular offerings of many other colleges and universities in metropolitan Kansas City. If you are a full-time, undergraduate students (enrolled in 12 or more credit hours at Avila), you may take one course per semester at another area campus at no additional tuition costs after prior certification of status by the Registration and Student Records Office at Avila. This option does not apply to summer session and some on-line course offerings.

Current participating institutions are Avila, Blue River Community College, Central Missouri State University, Kansas City Art Institute, Longview Community College, Maple Woods Community College, Park University, Penn Valley Community College, Rockhurst University and University of Missouri-Kansas City. Participation is subject to change at any time.

Student Responsibility

Each student is responsible for conforming with regulations in the Avila catalog. Therefore, it is important for each student to remain currently informed throughout the period of enrollment. The primary responsibility for meeting graduation requirements rests with the student. Degree requirements are subject to change. It is the student’s responsibility to be informed of applicable requirements. Faculty advisors and personnel are available to provide guidance, but do not replace the student’s responsibility for their own academic progress.

Course cancellation
Courses listed in the printed schedule and elsewhere are subject to cancellation for insufficient enrollment. For this reason, students are encouraged to enroll as early as possible and pre-determine alternative course choices in the event of course cancellation.
