To better serve our students, the following changes have been made to the academic calendar:
• The withdrawal date has been changed from April 10th to April 17th. 
• The late registration fee for summer and fall, scheduled for March 27th, has been changed to May 15th. 

Handle Your Business (HYB):
If you have registered for fall classes and submitted your 2020-21 FAFSA, you will receive notification regarding your status and next steps within 14 days of your FAFSA being processed regarding your status.

To have your PIN to access the registration portal reset, please email with your name and student ID# and a request for a reset.

You can access the portal at:
a. USER ID: Your Student/Employee # (all nine digits, no spaces, and no dashes, for example, 000123456)

Do not change your pin even when prompted to do so; simply reenter the six digits of your date of birth.

If you have not registered for classes, please contact your academic advisor via email. Should you have issues, please email our office for assistance. Next, submit your FAFSA. This is a student-driven action that prompts the packaging process. Click here to complete your FAFSA.
