1. When can I start to register for the next semester?
The Academic Calendar lists the dates of registration, simply select the term and year you want to view. The calendar can be accessed on the front of our homepage (bottom left), www.DaytonaState.edu. Registration for spring is the first Monday in November and registration for summer and fall starts on the first Monday in April. Registration for the subsessions can be done at any time through the drop/add period for each subsession. To view the schedule of classes that will be offered, click on the "Course Search" link from the QuickLinks menu that is on the front of the college homepage at www.DaytonaState.edu. That link is also available from your FalconNet page.
2. Do I need to see an advisor before registering?
The college does not require you to meet with an academic advisor prior to registration, but it is certainly recommended. Students in Associate of Science and certificate programs should meet with faculty in their respective academic departments because the course selection is very specific. Each academic program is described in the college catalog with all course requirements indicated as well as the prerequisites. Each course is not necessarily offered every semester, so students are encouraged to meet with an Academic Advisor who can help plan course selections.
3. How do I Search for Courses?
To do a search, go to the www.DaytonaState.edu website. Click on "Course Search" from the Quick Links menu. Choose College Credit. Select the term from the drop down box. You can search by specific course, campus, or by subsession (1st seven weeks or 2nd seven weeks). To do a more refined search you can choose the Advanced Search feature to select Instructional Method, time of day, or full classes as well as open classes. Online courses will display with any campus selected. To view online courses only, choose the option "Instructional Method" along with any other specific criteria.
4. How do I register online?
Go to the homepage (www.DaytonaState.edu) and click on the "MyDaytonaState" button. Click on Login, then enter your Falcon Username and Falcon Password. Click on "FalconNet" from the menu bar. Using the left-hand navigation menu, click on Registration. Then click on Class Registration link. Read the message about tuition payment, scroll down to acknowledge the information. Click on the Continue Button. Select the current term and year. Click on the Enter Registration button. Register for courses by entering Course and Section number; or, just enter the reference numbers by themselves (do not mix and match). Click on Add Course, and then review your schedule at the bottom. Afterwards, be sure to click on the Schedule and Fee Statement button to verify your bill due date, along with your tuition and fee charges.
5. Can I register if I am a Transient student? Can transient students register online?
Transient students are allowed to waive the course placement and prerequisite requirements. Therefore, transient students must have the transient form signed by their home college institution to verify the prerequisites are met and that the course will be acceptable upon transfer. Transient students cannot register online because the system would prevent registration according to the standard rules. Transient students will need to bring a copy of their transient form to the Registration Office at any one of our campus locations and register in-person, with identification.
6. How do I withdraw from a class?
Students are allowed to withdraw from a class up to the date indicated in the college catalog. Students who drop a class before the end of the Add/Drop period will receive a full refund; there is no refund after the date listed in the online Academic Calendar. Financial Aid recipients are strongly advised to contact the Financial Aid Office to be aware of any consequences before withdrawing from a course. To withdraw from one or all courses, go to the homepage, click on the MyDaytonaState button, click on Login, and then enter your Falcon Username and Falcon Password. Click on FalconNet from the menu bar. Using left hand menu, click on Registration. Click on Class Registration. Read the message about tuition payment, scroll down to acknowledge the information. Click on the Continue Button. Select the current term and year. Click on the Enter Registration button. Select the course you want to withdraw from by clicking in the radio button; then click the Drop/Withdraw button. Complete the survey.
7. What is the difference between dropping and withdrawing?
When you "drop" a class within the Add/Drop period, you are entitled to a refund and neither a grade nor the class shows up on your transcript. When you "withdraw" from a class (the deadlines are published on the academic calendar), you will lose the money you paid for the class, and the class will appear on your transcript with the grade of "W". This may impact how much you pay for classes in the future or your current/future financial aid awards. Click here for further information.
8. What do I do if the class I want is closed?
Once the class is filled no additional students can be added. Students can check back periodically to see if someone has chosen to drop the class or to see if another section has been added.
9. How long do I have to pay for classes? Do you have online classes? Is there a cost difference?
Each time you register you need to print out your Schedule and Fee Statement. Not only does this show the start date of your classes, it also displays your tuition and fees and provides your bill due date. The college does not mail a tuition bill. In most cases students have 10 days to pay or defer the bill, but this collapses to one day as the start date of classes gets closer. The college offers many classes online. Over 25% of students are taking at least one online class, with many other classes being offered on a 50/50 basis. There is an extra cost of $20.00/credit hour (for 2013-2014) for 100% online classes.
12. How many hours are considered full time?
The college reports enrollment on a semester basis with 12 credits or more being full-time; 9-11 credits being three-quarter-time; 6-8 credits is half-time; and less than 6 credits is less-than-half-time.
13. What is the maximum # of hours I can take each semester?
Students are allowed to take 18 credits in full semester courses and 9 credits in any one subsession. In special cases students with a 3.0 or higher grade point average may request special permission from the Director of Advising to take additional credits.
14. How do I login and access an online class?
There are instructions printed on your Schedule and Fee Statement that explains how to access an online class. It tells you to visit the Falcon Online website. You should review the "Is an Online Course Right for You?" message to ensure that you are prepared and ready for what is involved in an online class. Then, click on the "Login to Class" link. Enter your Falcon Username and Falcon Password (there are links on there to retrieve your login information and also examples).
15. Where do I go to print my schedule and fee statement?
To print a copy of your Schedule and Fee Statement, go to our homepage (www.DaytonaState.edu), click on the MyDaytonaState button, click Login, then enter your Falcon Username and Falcon Password. Click on "FalconNet" from the menu bar. Select "Payment and Book Voucher" link from the left-hand menu. Select "Fee Statement - Make Payment" link, then select the term and year. Click the Submit button. The schedule will be displayed along with your tuition bill information and bill due date.
16. Can I audit a class?
Students are allowed to audit a class (no grade or credit is given) to obtain a skill or knowledge that will not be used for graduation purposes. The cost is the same as when the course is taken for credit. Students cannot audit a developmental class. Many times students who have been out of school for a long time will audit a class previously taken to refresh their knowledge. Students need the instructor's permission to audit a class, forms are available in all Enrollment Services Offices (ex. Falcon Center / Question&Answer Center).
