Special Registration

Special Registration is available for members of Workforce Development, and Senior (65 and over) students.

Special Registration takes place on the day before the beginning of each semester in the Registration & Records Office.

Dropping Courses
Once the semester begins, there will be a brief Drop/Add period, when you may adjust your schedule, with appropriate permission. Be very careful to note the refund dates printed on your bill/schedule. Also, note no registration of any kind can or will be accepted after the 50% refund period ends on the Attendance Census Date for each session.

Courses must be dropped before the semester begins to be relieved of the financial obligation.  Students living in the area can complete a drop form in the Registration and Records Office.  Students living out of the area can fax a letter requesting they be dropped from their specific courses to the Registration and Records Office.  This letter must be signed by the student and include the student’s id number, address, telephone number, and email address;  term, course number, section, course title, of all courses which you would like to be dropped from. 

Withdrawing from Courses
Students may withdraw from their classes during the semester.  An official Add/Drop form must be submitted to the Registration and Records Office.  Before the attendance census date students do not need a signature from the instructor on the Add/Drop form to withdraw from their classes.  After the attendance census date students are required to obtain the signature from the instructor to withdraw from their class.  Students are unable to withdraw from courses after the Withdrawal Deadline.  Students who withdraw after the attendance census date are still financially responsible to the college for all tuition and fees subject to the applicable refund percentage. Failing to attend class will not relieve you of your financial responsibility, even if you have not paid your bill.

Payment is due at registration and can be made by cash, check, OR credit card.

Students who do not pay their tuition bills may be dropped for non-payment.

Currently attending students who registered through their Ocean Connect account can pay online. To pay by phone or ask questions about payment contact us at 732.255.0324.

IRS 1098-T Form
The Tax Reform Act of 1997 provided taxpayers/students with Hope Scholarship and Lifetime Learning tax credit opportunities. As part of that act, the college sends the student and the IRS Form 1098-T in late January every year.
