Missed Drop/Add and Still Want to Drop a Class


Courses Marked "Department Consent Required" (or other requirements)

Special permission or departmental authorization is required for courses marked "Department Consent Required."


All undergraduate students are required to meet with their advisor prior to registration. Advising hold flags can only be lifted by the adviser. Contact the Academic Advising Center at 410-704-2472.


Graduate Work by Seniors at Towson University

Seniors at TU may register for a maximum of 6 units of graduate study (500 level courses recommended) if they meet the following criteria:

  • graduate courses must be in excess of the units required for the bachelor’s degree
  • student maintains a 3.00 or higher cumulative GPA.

Payment for the courses is separate from that of undergraduate courses taken in the same term and is at the graduate tuition rate.

The courses may be transferred later to the student’s graduate record; however, successful completion of courses does not guarantee admission into the program. 

Permission to take a graduate course is also pending approval by the department/instructor that the Registrar's Office will solicit once the request is made by the student.



Some graduate programs require students to meet with their advisor or program director prior to registration.  If there is an advising hold on your account, please contact your program director.  If you are unsure who to contact, please see the list of graduate programs for the graduate program director's information.


Non-Degree Enrollment

If you are not currently pursuing a degree at TU, you will need to enroll as a non-degree student before registering for classes.


Declaring or Changing Your Major or Minor


All undergraduate students are asked to declare a major during their initial registration to assist advisors in proper placement of courses. Those who are not sure which major they wish to pursue will be designated as ”undecided.” Students who wish to add, change or drop a major or minor must complete the Change of Major/Minor Form.


Graduate students wishing to change their program must contact the University Admissions Office at 410-704-2113 to complete a new application for their intended program.  Previous applications to other programs cannot be used.
