Cancellation of Registration

The University will cancel the registration of a student whose registration fees have not been paid in full by the deadline as indicated on the university's academic calendar. This means, specifically, that a student will receive no credit for any courses taken during that term. This includes students that registered for Alternative Calendar courses using OASIS and courses that start prior to the first week of classes.

If you are only taking Alternative Calendar courses that were not registered using OASIS and have a start date after the first week of classes, register after the first week of classes or have an authorized deferred payment of fees, your registration may not be cancelled.

Cancellation/Reinstatement FAQ

Why do I only have $200.00 in late fees on my account and no tuition charges?

Since your registration has been cancelled the tuition and fee charges for the cancelled courses have been removed, $200.00 in late registration and late payment fees will be the only current term tuition charges reflected on your account. All cancelled students should receive a cancellation notice by mail that includes the total amount of their tuition and fee charges for the cancelled term.

What do I need to do to be reinstated?

In order to be reinstated you must pay the full amount of tuition and fees for the term you were cancelled plus any prior or current term charges that are past due by the reinstatement deadline. If you do not pay by the reinstatement deadline you will need to petition for reinstatement: Petitioning for Reinstatement. Current term charges that have different due dates such as Housing do not need to be paid in full to be reinstated. Please check you Account Summary by Term for any other charges due.

You will also be required to pay a late payment fee of $100 and a $100 late registration fee. The late registration fee is assessed for having to re-register your courses. All cancelled students should receive a cancellation notice by mail that includes the amount of their tuition and fee charges for the cancelled term.

If you make your payment online you will need to notify our Customer Service Office by emailing them at sfshelp@usf.edu. Once your payment is confirmed your reinstatement will be processed.

Term Reinstatement Deadlines

Can I have my courses reinstated after the reinstatement deadline?

If you do not pay to have your classes reinstated by the deadline you will need to go through the petition process to be reinstated. Reinstatement Petition Process

Do all my classes have to be reinstated?

Yes. When reinstated it will be for the full course load for which you are registered. Not attending the first class session of a course does not constitute officially dropping of a course. You will not have to pay for courses dropped during or prior to the first week of classes.

What if I don't want to be reinstated?

If you do not wish to be reinstated for the term simply don't make any payments for your current term tuition charges or late fees. If no payments have been made the late fees will be removed from your account approximately four weeks after the reinstatement deadline.
