Important Reminder regarding courses that require faculty consent (GTU and CDSP):
Please note that starting in Fall 2017, CDSP is no longer utilizing a PIN system for courses that require faculty consent. You will not need to request a PIN from the instructor or the registrar. Students should email the instructor requesting permission to register; once the instructor has given consent, the student can register for the course as usual (without a PIN). Instructors will review their course rosters throughout the registration period to verify that students have gained permission before enrolling. This process applies to non-CDSP GTU courses as well.

Cross-registration instructions for GTU students registering for CDSP classes:

CDSP participates fully in cross-registration with the GTU through its own registration system. Instead of using the GTU Colleague system to cross-register for CDSP classes, non-CDSP students who want to register for a CDSP class will need to register for the course “CDSP 9000 01” in WebAdvisor AND complete this online form. A separate form must be completed for each course. You will know that your cross-registration is complete when you see that the actual course number has replaced "CDSP 9000" on your WebAdvisor schedule. CDSP and GTU registrars will exchange information daily M-F, so expect that your registration will be updated within 24 hours, weekends excepted. Incomplete forms will be returned to the student without any registration being entered.

Search for courses: CDSP Catalog

Courses that require faculty consent: For courses that require faculty consent, you must email the instructor prior to registering to request permission.

Dropping a course: Students who decide to drop a course or change their grade  before the end of late registration (this semester, the deadline is February 10) should follow the customary process in WebAdvisor. Students who decide to drop or change a CDSP course after late registration must complete a Change of Enrollment form and submit a copy to both the GTU Consortial Registrar and the CDSP Registrar.

Incompletes:  Students must complete the GTU form and file it with their school registrar by the last day of the term.

Moodle: CDSP uses the GTU Moodle site. GTU students who register for a CDSP course will use their regular GTU Moodle ID and log-in information. All CDSP students will continue to have GTU Moodle IDs and so will be able to participate fully in courses that use Moodle. Any student enrolled in a CDSP course that uses Moodle should contact the GTU Moodle support desk if they need assistance.
