FAQ

Where can I find an intent to graduate form, a late-drop/late-add form, or a transcript request form?
Go to the Office of the Registrar's Web Page.

Why can't I register for the class I want to take?

  • It may be that you do not have the pre-requisites for the class you want to take.  Check the catalog to find out.
  • It may be that the class is full.  If this is the case, you should email the professor and ask to be put on the waiting list.

It may be that there are spaces being held for majors or non-majors.  If you get permission from the instructor to add the class, you will need to fill out a cut-card and email the form to your instructor.  The instructor will submit the cut-card to the administrator who will clear the block on the class that prohibits you from registering.  Once the block is cleared, you may register for the class on Goldlink.

What information do I need to send on a digital cut-card?

Fill out the following information and send it in an email to the professor of the full/restricted class OR the RTVF Program Head.  Be sure to explain your situation (why do you want to take the class, why can't you register normally, etcetera):
