Registration & Classes

  • help_outlineI was a COE student and switched to CMP. I took NGN111 (2 credit hours) while COE, but CMP students need STA201 (3 credit hours) instead, what shall I do?

    • Students can fill the “Change of Catalog” form in the registrar.

    • In case the students are enrolled in a MINOR, they will need to follow the same catalog year used for their MAJOR degree.
