Finishing Registration

Tuition and fees are due and payable once registration is complete. Students are not officially enrolled until tuition and fees have been paid for a given semester. Students who take advantage of registration during the semester will receive bills in the mail. Students must regularly monitor their MyFVSU account after registering for classes, throughout the registration period, during the awarding and disbursement of financial aid, during the posting of mid-term grades and following the posting of final grades. Students are responsible for knowing their enrollment status at the university.

educationAll students enrolled at Fort Valley State University must have a major on record. For newly admitted students, the major is determined to be the intended major as indicated on the student’s application for admission to the University. Students may, at any time, change or declare a new major by completing the Change of Major Form. The form must be completed at the Academic Advisement Center, located on the second floor of Peabody Building, for freshman and sophomores and within your major department for juniors and seniors.

  • Drop/Add: Fall 2019 classes will be dropped for non-payment of fees by Friday, August 28 at 5 p.m.
    • Drop/Add begins the first day of class each semester. Students have until the schedule change deadline to make adjustments to their current schedule. Refer to the Academic Calendar for these dates.
    • Students who have been dropped for non-payment will have exactly one business week (Monday-Friday) to clear financial obligations for reinstatement.
  • Registration Holds
    • Holds are placed on new and continuing students for different reasons.  Some holds must be cleared before registration can take place.  Please view your account through Banner Web for holds and consult with the appropriate office before arriving on campus.
  • Prerequisites
    • A prerequisite is a requirement that must be satisfied prior to registration in another course (e.g. ENGL 1101 must be satisfied before ENGL 1102).  The student is responsible for meeting prerequisites as identified in the FVSU Catalog.  Prerequisite checks are conducted by many departments and if students do not have the required prerequisite they may be refused continuing enrollment in the course after classes have started (it may be too late to replace it with another course).
  • Late registration
    • Students should register at their earliest opportunity. All students who have not registered by the first day of class will be required to pay late fees. Information about registration periods including early and late registration can be found in the Academic Calendar, located on the Office of the Registrar’s web page. Students may only register after the fourth class day in fall or spring or the second class day in summer with the approval of the department chair, the student’s dean, and the registrar. Registration after these dates is approved only in rare circumstances.
  • Cancel my registration
      • If it’s before the first day of class, cancel your registration. To cancel your registration, notify the Office of the Registrar in writing. If classes have already begun, you need to withdraw from school. To withdraw, you must complete the online withdrawal form.

A Dynamic Schedule is available on the Registrar’s Office webpage each semester. Classes are scheduled at a wide variety of times during the day, evening and weekends. Every effort is made to implement the current and future schedules as published, but circumstances such as staffing, funding, enrollment, and program changes may result in the cancellation of courses. The university reserves the right to cancel courses before and after registration.
