Fall Academic Calendar Footnotes

Students are responsible for class prerequisites, academic calendar deadlines, services information, and registration procedures.

The dates above pertain to 16-week classes starting the week of August 31, 2015 and ending the week of December 18, 2015. Classes with different start or end dates may have different add, drop, or refund deadlines.

* Students cannot add full-term classes online via WebAdvisor after the last day to add without add authorization code. After that day, students can only add full-term classes by using an add authorization code provided by the instructor.

** Admissions and Records office hours do not extend to cover weekends and/or holidays. Access during non-office times is available online through WebAdvisor.

[1] Use the following percentages to calculate deadlines for classes that meet for more or less than the full term:

  • Last date to drop with a refund: 8% of class meeting times
  • Last date to add: 20% of class meeting times
  • Last date to drop a class without a W (Census Date): 20% of class meeting times
  • Last date to apply for pass/no pass: 30% of class meeting times
  • Last date to withdraw with a W: 75% of class meeting times

If the class meets for 10 meetings or less, the class must be dropped prior to start of class to be eligible for a refund.

[2] The non-resident tuition and enrollment fees differ from resident fees. The deadline to drop with a refund also differs. Please see the Fall 2015 Fees Chart for information concerning non-resident tuition refund deadlines.

[3] The Application for Fall 2015 Degree or Certificate (Associate in Arts degree, Associate in Science degree, or Certificate of Achievement) is available from and should be submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records. Applications received after the deadline will be processed for the next term.

Schedule for Registration

Continuing students are assigned the earliest registration times and appointments based on having a declared academic program (major) and by the number of Ohlone units earned toward that program.

New and former students receive the next opportunity to register but do not receive specific appointments.
