Important Reminder regarding courses that require faculty consent (GTU and CDSP):
Starting with Summer 2018, for courses requiring faculty consent, students should email the instructor requesting permission to register. Instructors will monitor their courses' enrollment and notify the Registrar of any students who have registered without permission. CDSP is no longer using a PIN system for restricted courses.

Summer 2018 registration instructions for CDSP students:

Prior to registration:

  • Make sure your account is up to date: if you have any remaining balance on your student account that has not been resolved by April 13, your log-in will not work. You will receive a separate email from the business office notifying you of the hold on your account.
  • Review the CDSP course catalog and the list of GTU courses available.
  • Contact the instructor if the class is restricted and requires faculty consent. For non-CDSP classes, forward the instructor's permission to the registrar to receive a PIN.

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

CDSP participates fully in cross-registration with the GTU. Non-CDSP students who want to register for a CDSP class will need to register for the course in their own school's registration system (note: for some schools, all classes will be available for registration; for others, you may need to request the course from your registrar).

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 registration (for Summer, the deadline is May 25) should follow the customary process in their school's registration system. Students who decide to drop or change a CDSP course after registration must complete a Change of Enrollment form and submit a copy to both the GTU Consortial Registrar and the CDSP Registrar. Summer courses cannot be dropped after the class has begun.

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.
