  • Credits easily transfer to most institutions.*
  • Taking just one class gives you access to St. Thomas facilities and resources such as the Career Development Center and the Anderson Student Center.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I register?

You should register or submit schedule revisions using Murphy Online beginning with your assigned early registration time in April until the first day of summer classes. You will receive a Murphy Registration time-ticket email that lists your first available registration date and time.

When do I need to complete a paper Change in Registration (add/drop) Form?

  • To register for course that is full
  • To submit a registration once classes have started (late registration)
  • To change a course to an audit
  • To register for an independent study course

All Change in Registration forms must be delivered to the Registrar's office or the change (add/drop/withdrawal) is not valid. The form is dated when received and that date determines any refund. See summer session calendar for class deadlines and refund schedule.

First-day Attendance Policy

All undergraduate students must confirm their registered place in a class by attending class on the first day. Students who do not attend class on the first day may be dropped from the course by the instructor.
