Definition and Expectation
Irregular registrations are individualized independent study courses arranged between a student (s) and instructor for a given term.
Irregular Registrations are not to be used to circumvent course descriptions, credits, repeat limits, grade modes, fees, academic calendar deadlines, or other SOU policies.
Students should work with their instructors to discuss the necessity and details of an irregular registration. Instructors must work with their chairs and directors to determine the appropriateness of the course prior to submitting an irregular registration request form. Once the decision has been made to move forward, the online irregular registration request form may be submitted by the instructor or a staff designee. Students are not permitted to submit the form. Instructors will find the link to the irregular registration request form in their Faculty SISWeb under “Faculty Registration Tools.” Forms are completed online by the instructor or staff designee via Formstack.
Once the irregular registration request has been submitted, each party will receive an email to their SOU email address from InsureSign@send.insuresign.com with instructions to approve or cancel the course. Once all parties have approved, Raider Student Services will receive the final approved registration for processing. Raider Student Services cannot process the Irregular Registration until all required approvals have been obtained.
Please note that by approving the Irregular Registration form, students acknowledge this registration is subject to the tuition/fee assessment, refunding schedule and SOU academic policies.
Please allow up to 7 business days for processing once the final approved form has been received by Raider Student Services.
