My Balance Is Zero
Even if your balance is $0 because of scholarships or other forms of financial assistance, your registration is not complete until you request schedule validation. Validation is the last and final step in the registration process. Before the fee payment deadline, you must go to our validation page and complete the required information. PLEASE NOTE: Request schedule validation ONLY when your balance is $0 or your financial aid is more than your balance due. If you owe a balance, please do not use this feature. Your schedule will be validated by the Cashiers Office when you make your payment.
Failure to secure validation will result in your class schedule being dropped. Without validation, we must assume you will not be attending or do not wish to keep this same schedule. Therefore, we will drop the schedule to open the class space to other students.
By validating your schedule, you are telling us that you will be attending Winthrop and wish to keep this schedule. This allows us project class sizes, classroom space needed, and faulty staffing. It also allows University advisors and other students to know which classes are available to new or transferring students.
We will use the students' Winthrop University e-mail address to notify students they may lose their class schedule. To ensure you receive timely notices from our office, it is imperative that you establish a Winthrop University e-mail account and monitor it regularly. Students not validated will receive notices in increments of seven days, three days and one day prior to cancellation.
