The registrar today extended the final study list deadline until 5 p.m. Monday, Oct. 15, due to what one academic director termed “problems with enrollment.” Melissa Colleen Stevenson, academic director for Florence Moore, Muwekma-Tah-Ruk and the Lomita Row Houses, sent out an email just after the original deadline of 5 p.m. was supposed to have passed to let students know of the change.
“In light of the problems that students experienced today with enrollment, the registrar has decided to extend the final study list deadline to this coming Monday at 5 p.m.,” Stevenson’s email said.
According to the email, parts of the enrollment system on Axess were not functioning properly, particularly the SimpleEnroll application. Billed as a simpler way to enroll in classes, SimpleEnroll was not allowing students to either enroll or drop classes earlier in the day, although the system was working for some students as of 6 p.m. Friday.
However, those who dropped classes over the weekend ahead of the new deadline were informed that they would be considered withdrawn from the classes they dropped, receiving Ws on their transcripts. The Registrar’s office was unable to find a technological fix for these changes.
Those who have received Ws for classes dropped over the weekend or those who attempted to change unit totals must submit a HelpSU request to the Registrar’s office.
