In order to register, you must first be admitted to Savannah Technical College. If you have not been admitted, please view the Admissions Requirements. Registration is held prior to the beginning of each semester. Students are notified of specific registration dates and times.

How to Register

Withdrawal and “No Show” Policies

Students are expected to attend all classes for which they are registered. It is the student’s responsibility to drop or withdraw from any course they are not attending.  Students who do not establish attendance in at least one class session during the first seven (7) instructional days of the academic term will be reported as a No Show for the course and if applicable, financial aid will be reduced accordingly.

A “No Show” is classified as a student who has registered for a course but never attended/participated. If applicable, tuition will be adjusted and financial will be reduced accordingly.

Withdrawal by a Student during the Refund Period

Students are  responsible for submitting a completed Withdrawal Request Form  before or within the first  six (6) instructional days (no harm no foul/drop and add period) of an academic term. All out-of-pocket tuition and fees, excluding the application fee are refunded if a student formally withdraws prior to the first day and during the first six instructional days of an academic term.

Failure to do so may result in an academic or financial aid penalty. A student contemplating withdrawal should consult with his/her academic advisor.

Withdrawal by a Student after the Refund Period

Students are responsible for submitting a completed Withdrawal Request Form after the no harm no foul (drop and add) period.   Students withdrawing after the first six (6) instructional days of the semester are not eligible to receive a refund.

Savannah Technical College calculates earned Title IV federal fund amounts based on attendance. A student receiving Title IV federal funds, such as the Pell Grant, and withdraws prior to attending sixty percent (60%) of the semester, will only receive the earned amount. 

Withdrawal Grading

Withdrawal request forms are processed using the date the student submitted the official request. The request must be received by the designated withdrawal deadline for each term (course syllabus) and will receive a grade of “W” regardless of the grade average at the time of withdrawal.
