Registration Process

  • If you have never attended the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, or if you wish to be readmitted, you must be accepted and admitted through the Office of Admissions, (814) 362-7555 before you can register for classes. After you are admitted, you will be assigned an advisor who will assist you in planning a program of study. You must be officially registered for all classes you attend. Your advisor must remove your Advising Hold once you have met with them to go over your course selections.

    Registration And Add/Drop Form Processing

    Students are assigned an Enrollment Appointment (date and time they may begin registering for classes). This Appointment is determined by the number of credits a student has earned.

    Students may find their Enrollment Appointment on their Student Services Center in PeopleSoft.  Students may self-enroll in classes through their Student Services Center once they have met with their advisor, their Advising Hold is lifted and the day and time of their Enrollment Appointment has been reached. Students also must have taken care of any other holds they may have that would prevent registration.

    If a student needs assistance registering in courses, they must complete an Enrollment Form listing the classes they need to add and it must be signed by their advisor. The completed form may be brought to Enrollment Services in the Hangar Building to be processed.

    Students may add or drop classes through self-service in their Student Services Center up through the last day to add or drop. This deadline is published in each semester’s schedule of classes.

    Beginning in the spring of 2018, students will have an extended drop period. Under special circumstances, an undergraduate may be eligible to drop a course in the third week of fall or spring term. Students must meet all of the following criteria to drop a course during this time:

    • Undergraduate
    • Undergraduate course
    • Fall or spring semester
    • Student must remain in full-time status after dropping the course
    • Student’s advisor must provide permission to drop through an Enrollment Form and this will be processed only by the Registrar (Hangar Building) or Director of Academic Advising (Hanley Library).

    Course Withdrawal

    To withdraw from a class after the official end of the add/drop period while still enrolled in other classes, you must process a Withdrawal Request Form through the Enrollment Services Office. If approved, the grade "W" will be recorded on your grade report and transcript for that course. "W" grades do not count toward a student's degree, quality point average, and academic progress for purposes of financial aid eligibility. There is no tuition adjustment associated with a course withdrawal. If you wish to drop all of your courses after the end of the add/drop period, you must resign from the term.

    Full-Time vs. Part-Time

    If you are an undergraduate student registered for 12 to 18 credits in the fall and spring terms you are regarded as a full-time student. You are assessed the current "flat" tuition rate for your school. If you are an undergraduate student registered for 11.5 or fewer credits, you are considered part-time, and you are billed on a per-credit basis.

    Undergraduate students are not permitted to register for more than 18 credits, without the permission of the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs.

    Undergraduate students who register for more than 18 credits will be billed on a per-credit basis for each additional credit that exceeds their full "flat" tuition rate.

    You are billed on a per-credit basis in the summer term.

    Class Roster

    Once per term, a Class Roster is mailed to each of your instructors. If the instructor does not read the names listed on the roster to the class, check with him or her to make sure that your name appears on the roster. If you are attending a class but your name does not appear on the roster, you should come to the Enrollment Services Office immediately. You must be enrolled in a class in order to earn credit for the class.

    Please note, that a class for which you are “waitlisted” does not guarantee you an enrollment. A seat must open up and you must then be moved into the class in order to be registered in the class.

    Termination of Registration - Dropping All Classes

    Full time students must resign by notifying the Office of Student Affairs.  Part time students must resign by notifying the Enrollment Services Office. Your charges may be prorated depending on the date of resignation. You may resign in person, by telephone, or by email. The effective date of your resignation will normally be the date you notify the University.

    Title IV Refund Policy

    Adjustments to tuition charges resulting from official resignations are based on the effective date of resignation and in accordance with the federally mandated calculation.

    The calculation is based on the period of enrollment completed. That percentage is computed by dividing the total number of calendar days in the term into the number of calendar days completed, as of the date of student notification. The percentage of Title IV assistance to which the student is entitled (has "earned") is equal to this percentage of the term completed, up to 60%. If the resignation occurs after 60% of the term is completed, the percentage is equal to 100%. The amount of Title IV aid which must be returned is based on the percentage of "unearned" aid. That percentage is computed by subtracting earned aid from 100%. The University is required to return the lesser of 1) the unearned aid percentage applied to institutional charges or 2) the unearned aid percentage applied to the total Title IV aid received. The student is required to return the difference between the amount of unearned aid and the amount returned by the University. If the student (or parents in the case of PLUS loans) is required to return a portion or all of their loan proceeds, the calculated amount is to be repaid according to the loan's terms. Funds are returned to the following Title IV sources in order of priority: 1. Unsubsidized Federal Family Education Loans (FFEL) 2. Subsidized Federal Family Education Loans (FFEL) 3. Federal Perkins Loans 4. FFEL PLUS loans 5. Federal Pell Grants 6. Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG) program 7. Other Title IV assistance for which a return of funds is required 8. Other federal, state, private, or institutional financial assistance
