Scheduling Procedures and Dates
The course schedule contains the course offerings for fall and spring semesters in 2014-2015. Scheduling is reserving a place in courses for the next semester. Schedules must be approved by the academic advisor, and you should schedule for both fall and spring semester at the same time. A scheduling sheet is available online under course schedules. After you have an approved fall and spring schedule, it can be submitted to the Registrar’s Office, Serrick Center 204. Seniors and students, who are education majors, are encouraged to schedule during the first two weeks after scheduling begins in order to get into the courses needed for graduation. All students returning to Defiance College next year should have classes scheduled no later than Friday, April 11th.
Part-time students, who are not on campus during the day, may mail or email their schedules to the Registrar’s Office any time after accessing this course schedule.
To attend class the Business Office must receive a signed billing statement with payment arrangements completed by the due date; regardless if you have a schedule change, zero balance, credit balance, or loans in process. Student bills are due and payable in full on or before August 1 for fall, and December 1 for spring. Bills may be accessed on www.defiance.edu through the myDC Portal. Failure to meet this deadline may result in a $100.00 late fee.

Family Rights and Privacy Act
All students have the right to request that the College withhold directory information from the public. Requests must be filed each year. More detailed information about the Privacy Act can be found on the catalogs/schedules website. Additional information and forms to withhold information for the 2014-2015 school year can be picked up in the Registrar’s Office or request that the form be mailed to the student.
Students should not schedule courses that conflict in time unless both courses must be taken in that semester and cannot be avoided. If one of the courses can be taken another semester, it should be and is not considered a conflict that requires a solution by the Registrar’s Office. We will try to resolve conflicts after the scheduling period is over. Conflicts are only resolved between required courses in a major and not between courses that are desired but not required.
