Note: Please review any prerequisites on the class schedule in advance to ensure your eligibility for the courses you have selected.  Undergraduate degree-seeking students will also be required to enter their registration pin obtained from their academic advisor.  Students who would like to take graduate level courses, or register beyond the maximum number of credits allowed, must first request a Petition for Irregular Schedule.

Students who previously attended Southern, and subsequently withdrew due to personal or other circumstances, may apply to return to the University to continue their studies. 

  • Students who earned 12 or more credits at another institution, after leaving Southern, must complete a transfer application to reapply with Undergraduate Admissions

  • Graduate students who earned 9 or more credits at another institution, after leaving Southern, must complete a new application to reapply with Graduate Admissions

  • All other returning students are eligible to complete the Readmission Application with the Registrar's Office to re-enroll.  Upon approval, students will be reinstated at their last academic standing, and to their last program of study in the current catalog year. 

Returning after Academic Dismissal

Any undergraduate student who has been academically dismissed may continue to study as a part-time non-degree seeking student.  Once the student has attained a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher, they may complete the Readmission Application with the Registrar's Office.  A graduate student who is dismissed must complete a new application with the Graduate Admissions Office, after the lapse of one semester, and include a petition to the graduate program coordinator describing why he or she will be successful if readmitted.

Southern welcomes students year-round to study as a visiting or non-degree seeking student.  To get started, please complete the Visiting Student Application, there is no application fee.  You will receive a response in 1-3 business days requesting a valid photo ID to complete your application processing.

Have you taken classes or applied to Southern previously?  

You do not need to complete this application to continue studying as a non-matriculated student, please contact the Registrar's Office to reactivate your account.

Non-Matriculated Status

Visiting and non-degree seeking students have a non-matriculated status.  Non-matriculated students may register for courses on a part-time basis only, are subject to the policies of the university, but are not eligible for financial aid or on-campus housing.  All students must meet any course requirements to register, but departments also have the right to exclude or restrict non-matriculated student registration for courses in their program.

Registration Guidelines

If you have not yet completed a bachelor’s degree or higher, as indicated on your application, you may study at the undergraduate level on a part-time basis (less than 12 credits).  These courses will be applied to your undergraduate transcript and you will be billed at the undergraduate tuition and fee rate.  Prior to attempting 30 credits, you must apply for matriculated status through the Admissions Office to continue either on a part-time or full-time basis.

If you have previously completed a bachelor’s degree or higher, as indicated on your application, you may study at the undergraduate or graduate level on a part-time basis (less than 9 credits).  These courses will be applied to your graduate transcript and you will be billed at the graduate tuition and fee rate.  A maximum of 9 credits taken as a non-matriculated student may be applied to a graduate program.  You may apply for matriculated status through the Graduate Admissions Office to continue either on a part-time or full-time basis.

See the Calendar for the registration dates for non-matriculated students and follow the instructions above on How to Register for classes.
