Students should refer to the appropriate Academic Calendar for important registration dates. Students are expected to enroll in full-term classes by the date listed on the Academic Calendars on the Ohlone website.
To add a class after the last day to add without an add authorization code, students must obtain an add authorization code from the instructor. Students will log on to their WebAdvisor account and use the add authorization code to enroll in the class. It is the student's responsibility to enroll in the class using the add authorization code issued by the instructor.
Per Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations under no circumstances will a student be allowed to enroll in a class after the last date to drop the class with a W.
Students should refer to the appropriate Academic Calendar for add and drop deadlines for full-term classes and other important dates. This Academic Calendar does not apply to self-paced classes, short-term classes, year-long classes, or classes meeting more or less than the full semester. For classes with 10 or fewer meeting times, the drop deadline is before the class begins.
Students may use WebAdvisor to drop a full-term class through the last day to drop with a W. Students who drop classes after the 20% point of class meetings will receive a W grade. However, a W grade is not punitive.
Students are responsible for the proper revision of their class schedules. Students who stop attending a class are responsible for verifying the drop through WebAdvisor. If this is not done the student may be registered in the class to the end of the semester and receive an F grade, and be charged for the class.
Per Title 5 of the California Education Code, students are restricted in the number of W grades they may receive in the same course. Once a student has three Ws in the same course at Ohlone College, the student will be restricted from registering for the course again. Any grade received by a student, including a W, counts as an enrollment.
Students should refer to the appropriate Academic Calendar for important dates.
Each time a student registers for a course, a confirmation screen will appear on WebAdvisor and the student will receive a follow-up email message.
Students have five (5) calendar days to make payment arrangements for their enrolled classes. If payment has not been processed via WebAdvisor or by the Cashier's Office by midnight on the fifth day, students may be dropped from those specific classes.
Once the waitlist process is run that day, any empty seats within classes will be filled by qualified students from the waitlist. Students dropped due to non-payment may register again for the course if there are available seats or may place themselves on the waitlist.
