The student may also verify enrollment on OASIS http://usfonline.admin.usf.edu/
Space Available Registration - Senior Citizen Audit registration is on a "space available" basis. Many high demand courses are already filled by degree-seeking students prior to the Senior Audit Registration date therefore students may not pre-register for courses for which they plan to use the Senior Citizen Tuition Waiver. The waiver will not be processed if a Senior Citizen pre-registers and then submits a Senior Citizen tuition waiver form for those courses. Available courses can be viewed online by clicking on Schedule of Classes or typing http://www.registrar.usf.edu/ssearch/search.php directly in your browser window then follow the instructions below.
* Open the “TERM” pull-down menu – Click on the desired term (e.g. Summer 2008)
Course Approval/Permission - Many courses require departmental approval, prerequisites or have other restrictions which limit registration. Since you may be unaware of those restrictions, you should request permission from the respective instructor in advance of registration. There is a Registration Worksheet form to accomplish this. Under no circumstance will notes on plain paper without department letterhead be accepted.
Waiver - It is the student's responsibility to complete and submit the waiver form allowing sufficient time for the form to reach the Office of Admissions and Records by the registration deadline.
