Class Schedule Availability

UCO's class schedules become available for viewing on the student information terminals and on the web at UCONNECT by the following approximate schedule:

Summer: First or second week of February
Second week of March
Spring: First Week of October

The student information terminals have up-to-date information about added classes and open sections. Student information terminals are located in the atrium on the first floor of the Nigh University Center. In addition to information about class schedules, these terminals allow you to view personal information such as address, current enrollment, enrollment holds, final grades, hours completed and GPA information.

Check for Enrollment Holds

Use UCONNECT to check for any enrollment holds. All holds must be cleared at the appropriate office before enrollment is permitted. Students with holds cannot enroll or add/drop courses via the web.

Auditing a Class   

Any student desiring to audit a class must obtain written permission from the instructor. Approval to audit is contingent upon available classroom and laboratory space. When auditing, you must satisfy the same prerequisites as students enrolled for credit and you will be responsible for attendance and/or participation requirements set by the instructor. It is not permissible to drop courses for audit and change to credit after the late enrollment period ends. 

Corequisite Courses

Students enrolling in courses which have a corequisite, e.g. separate biology lecture and lab courses, or chemistry lecture and lab courses, must enroll in both CRNs at the same time, for UCONNECT to recognize the corequisite. Therefore, students may not enroll in a lecture without also enrolling in the lab and visa-versa.

Prerequisite Courses

Students enrolling in courses that have a prerequisite will not be able to enroll unless the prerequisite course has been completed. Some courses have multiple prerequisites in which all must be completed before enrollment in that specific course is permitted.

Full (closed) Classes

UCO colleges design their class levels to maximize teaching effectiveness and comply with legal room size limits. Most classes cannot be raised to let more students enroll. If a class is full, students should select another section of the class or select an alternative class. To get permission to enroll in a closed class, you must obtain written permission from the chairperson of the department offering the class. In some instances, the college offering the course may require additional written approvals.

Withdrawing from All Classes  

To completely withdraw from ALL currently enrolled classes after full-term courses begin, students must fill out the Complete Withdraw eform. Withdrawing from a course may result in a 'W' on an official and unofficial transcript if the request is submitted after the refund period. Students must use UCONNECT log-in credentials to submit the eform.

Withdrawing from All Classes on the Web

Students may withdraw from all courses via the web until 6 a.m. the morning of the first day of the regular 16-week semester. After that, all complete withdrawals are processed as in the previous paragraph.

Withdrawing from All Classes - Federal Aid Recipients 

Effective fall 2000, the refund policy will change for current and potential Federal Aid recipients. Federal aid recipients who completely withdraw from school prior to completing at least 60% of the semester may have to repay some portion of the federal funds received. This change will require UCO to determine the unearned portion of the funds received. This calculation could require the student and/or the university to immediately repay funds disbursed on behalf of the student for the purpose of paying educational cost.

As in the past, students receiving federal aid must be cleared through the Office of Student Financial Aid as part of the withdrawal process. At that time the earned and unearned portions of funds disbursed would be calculated to determine the amount to be returned by the student, as well as the amount to be returned by the institution. Students should be aware that any portion the university is required to remit to the federal program as a result of the withdrawal will be charged to the student then turned over to the bursar office for collection if not repaid. Under this new policy, the student could owe funds back to a federal program, as well as the institution. Counselors will be prepared to discuss the impact of the withdrawal as well as repayment options in detail with the student at the time of withdrawal. Of course, if it is determined that the program to be repaid is an FFEL program (Stafford, USL or Parent Loan), the repayment will be subject to the original terms of the loan 


Refunds vary depending upon when the drop or withdrawal officially occurs. See the appropriate "Deadlines to Remember" for drop/withdraw deadline dates for full-semester and block classes.

Refer to the Bursar's webpage for information about setting up a refund preference.
