Consent to Enroll
FerrisNow students have the right and responsibility to register each academic term. The University will not register students without that student’s consent to register. Students may cancel registration before Ferris assesses student tuition or fees.
FerrisNow students grant consent through the application packet submission and a class roster. This high school submits this documentation to the FerrisNow Program on the student's behalf. These documents indicate the student's desire to register for (a) specific course(s).
Instructors of record verify consent through the roster verification process. The University outlines this process in the FerrisNow Handbook.
A K-12 administrator, staff member or instructor may cancel a student's consent to enroll. The K-12 representative should submit the FerrisNow drop/withdraw form on the student's behalf. The University provides this form in the online FerrisNow Handbook.
Secondary administrators, instructors and students enrolling in concurrent enrollment, dual enrollment, CARE 102, CARE 201, CARE 203, READ 175, READ 176, UNIV 101, and Woodbridge Promise classes should be aware that course content, instruction, academic expectations, and supporting materials have been developed for adult students typically age 18 or older.
