Late Registration

You must be registered in order to attend classes. After the first day of classes, you have a short grace period in which to register online. If your original registration is on or after the first day of classes, you will be assessed a single, one-time per semester late registration fee.

After the grace period, registration is permitted on an exception basis only through 50% of the term. Authorization from the appropriate academic department is required for each course. Once granted, you must contact Records and Registration either via email through your my.emich email account or by phone at 734.487.4111 to finalize registration.

Campus Codes/Delivery Types

Online Synchronous

Courses are fully online and require students and faculty to participate during specific meeting days/times.


Online Asynchronous

Courses are fully online with no specific meeting days/times. Students do not have to meet for the online class at a certain time. Instead, the instructor posts assignments in Canvas, and students read instructions posted, like reading certain chapters or articles. Students might also then be asked to complete assignments by a certain deadline.


Online Synchronous with Online Asynchronous                 

Courses are fully online and have a mixture of synchronous and asynchronous meetings. Some parts of the course require all students to be online at specific meeting days/times while other times the students would have online asynchronous instruction.
