Schedule Protection & Canceled Registration

Your classes will be protected if:

  • You qualify for financial aid and your accepted financial aid is equal to or greater than your fees.
    • In this case, schedule protection is automatic and is a courtesy that will allow time for financial aid funds to be disbursed to your account.
  • If you have no financial aid or your accepted financial aid is less than your fees:

NOTE: Protecting your schedule is not a guarantee of funds and does not relieve you of the obligation to pay. You must complete all required steps for completion and disbursement of their financial aid. If you do not complete the financial aid process, you are found to be ineligible for financial aid, or you incur charges after the deadline that are in excess of your financial aid, you will be responsible for paying the full account balance by the next published payment due date.

Check your Schedule Protection Status

You may confirm the protection status of your schedule by logging into WINGSPAN, click on the Student tab, click on Registration, then click on Schedule Protection Status. This will let you know whether or not your schedule has been protected from cancellation.

Canceled Registration for Non-Payment

Winthrop University reserves the right to cancel student registrations for all courses unless the student has made satisfactory payment arrangements by the established deadline.

  • We will use the students' Winthrop University e-mail address to notify students they may lose their class schedule.

  • Cancellation occurs to allow University advisors and other students to know which classes are available to new or transferring students.

  • 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.

Registration after Add/Drop

Students who wish to enroll in classes or re-register for classes after the final fee payment deadline, must submit a Schedule Change Form and be prepared to pay toward their student account.
