STUDENT ENROLLMENT

Candidates who have gained admission for a programme of study at CASE must get enrolled by formally accepting the offer of admission; agreeing to abide by, and uphold the regulations and policies governing the institution; and by completing the initial process of registration.

Enrollment Tenure

The enrollment tenure for each student is limited to the stipulations established, which is the time-limit established for completion of the programme of study the student was accepted into.  A student must register for each semester of a programme to keep his or her enrollment active.  A student who’s enrollment tenure has expired must re-apply to CASE for continuation of studies, in which case the existing policies for admission would be applied.

STUDENT REGISTRATION

Registration is Mandatory.  It is the formal process for obtaining approval to undertake academic instruction and participate in or share the facilities provided for students.  Registration involves two major activities:  fee payment and course selection.

Registration allows for full privileges of student membership at CASE.  Conversely, students who are unregistered will not be allowed to attend classes or access services provided for registered students.  Any unregistered student found to be accessing services will be asked to withdraw immediately for that semester.  The College reserves the right not to register any student after the official registration period, even though a student may have been attending classes without being registered.

Course Selection

An important part of the registration process is selecting, recording and obtaining approval for courses to be pursued each semester.  Students will not be allowed to select courses which require prerequisites that they have not yet taken and passed.  Approval for courses can only be done by a legitimate faculty member with such authority. 

Registration for courses means that you are also registered for the examinations for those courses.  Conversely, you are not permitted to take examinations for courses that you did not register for. 

How to Register

There are scheduled dates for registration each semester which are published to inform all students and staff.  Students are provided guidelines on the process of registration based on the existing systems and procedures.

Late Registration

Students who fail to register within the scheduled period may be permitted to do so upon making a request and gaining approval.  Late registration will attract penalties including additional charges.

Provisional Registration

Students may request a fee payment plan which will allow them a provisional registration until the full payments are made.  Provisional registration is usually granted with specific conditions and timelines attached.  Students who gain provisional registration and fail to abide by the conditions agreed to may have their provisional registration status revoked.

Change of Registration

Students who wish to make subsequent changes to their registration may do so during the “add/drop” period as scheduled.  Students who are approved to change programmes, or courses will need to amend their registration to reflect the approved changes.

The period for adding or dropping courses is two weeks from the official start of a given semester. The final chance to drop courses or withdraw from the semester must be done four weeks (1 month) before the start of final examinations, without academic penalty. Where applicable, refunds of fees will be pro-rated when courses are dropped.

Official Class Lists of Registered Students

Class Lists of the (names) of students who are duly registered will be prepared 
by the Registry, and sent to the Academic and Support Units.  Students who are not registered will not appear on the class list and will not be admitted to classes and provided services by Lecturers and Support Staff.

STUDENT RETENTION

Time Limit for Programme Completion

There is an established period of normal duration for each academic programme at CASE.  The time-limit for completion of a programme of study is the normal duration plus an additional period equivalent to the normal duration. For example, the time limit for completing an associate degree would be four years [two years for the normal duration plus an additional two years.]    Students who do not complete their programmes of study within the permissible time-frame will be no longer considered a current student as their studentship or enrollment shall be deemed to have expired.
