Registration

Registering for a Course

All students planning on attending Morton College must register for courses and pay tuition and fees. A course schedule, listing days and times courses are offered can be found online. Students may enroll online using their Panther Portal at: http://my.morton.edu

Once a student is logged in, navigate to Panther Central and follow the steps below; Panther Central, Search and Register for Courses

Alternatively, students may also register in person in the Office of Admission and Records.

Late Registration

Students are discouraged from registering for any class that has already met. However, with the written approval of the instructor on a Registration form, a student may register for a course up to six calendar days after the class has met. Registration for a course after these six calendar days is prohibited.

Dropping a Course

For a 16-week course, a student may drop from a course after initial registration until two weeks before the last day of the semester. For Summer semester, it is one week before the end of the semester. Courses shorter than one semester may have different drop dates. To drop a course, please refer to the Course Drop Procedure as outlined below. Courses shorter than the traditional length of each semester may have different drop dates.

Course Drop Procedure

Students may drop a course by logging in to their Panther Portal online at http://my.morton.edu or by completing an add/drop form available in the Office of Admission and Records. To drop a course in person a student must submit the form to the Office of Admission and Records for processing before the deadline date. Refunds of tuition and fees will be allowed only as specified in the Refund Policy.

Administrative Withdrawal

Students who no longer wish to continue in a course are responsible for withdrawing from it. Students, however, who have excessive absences as defined by the course syllabus, or who are otherwise judged not to be seriously pursuing academic success, may be notified by their instructor of possible withdrawal. Students who fail to make satisfactory arrangements with their instructor to continue in the course may be subject to administrative withdrawal for nonattendance and a grade of “W” (withdrawal) will be assigned. It is the student’s responsibility to officially withdraw from a course. Students administratively withdrawn from classes are still responsible for tuition and fees according to the College’s Refund Policy and Tuition Refund Table.

Students may appeal the withdrawal to the appropriate Dean within 10 days. The dean’s decision to reinstate or not, will be based on the circumstances, the student’s status in the class, and the instructor’s recommendation. If the decision is made to reinstate the student, the Dean will notify the Office of Admissions and Records, the student, and the faculty. Mutually agreed upon conditions may be applied to certain reinstatements.

Auditing a Course

Students wishing to audit a course must meet all admissions and registration regulations and pay the required tuition and fees. Students may register to audit a course only during the first week of the desired course. However, a student may change from credit to audit or audit to credit by completing an Add/Drop Form and obtaining the instructor’s written approval. Requests for change of audit status must be submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records before the course’s midterm week or no later than the seventh week of a 16-week course, or the third week of an eight-week course. Courses shorter than eight weeks will have different deadlines. For further information, contact the Office of Admissions and Records.

A student auditing a course may participate fully in class activities, subject to the instructor’s approval, but will not be required to take tests or examinations. No credit is awarded for courses audited and a grade of “V” (visitor) will be recorded. Students may register to audit a course only during Add/Drop week or the first week of the semester.

Cancellation of Courses by The College

Courses will be held as scheduled unless cancelled due to insufficient enrollment or other College considerations. The College reserves the right to cancel any course for insufficient enrollment or for other reasons deemed necessary by the College. The College, at its discretion, may adjust course starting and ending dates as well as meeting times or days. Should a course be cancelled, a full refund of tuition and fees will be issued.
