    7. To see more information on the course, click on the course with the green text or click the Search button on that course.

    9. Repeat until you have all your courses planned. 

How to register

Step 1: Log into your account
On this page, click the Tools menu on the top right and choose Student Self-Service. From there, click the button labeled student planning, then select option two on the right side labeled plan your degree and register for classes. 

Step 2: Choose the semester in which you want to enroll
Students can register for more than one semester at a time, so make sure you have selected the correct one using the arrow symbols to change semesters. 

If you haven't already planned you courses you can search for any course at the top right of the page using the search bar. Courses can then be added to your plan by using the add course to plan button. 

You can also click the view available sections tab under the title of the course. This will drop down the entire list of sections available for the course, so you can choose the section that best fits your schedule. Please note that a planned online class will appear in a bar at the bottom of the schedule. 

Step 3: Finalize your schedule
Click the register now button in the top right corner of the plan your degree landing page. This button will not be available until the date and time you are eligible to register. 

Step 4: Pay your tuition

Pay tuition and fees by the deadline. You may register up to the start of classes each semester. However, we urge you to register early to increase access to the classes you want.


Adding courses

You may add courses until the first session begins online via Student Self-Service or at the Registration Office. After the course has started, but before the end of the refund period, students may register with written permission of the instructor. Students must be officially registered in a course to be allowed to attend that course.

If you are receiving federal financial aid, all courses for a given term must be registered by day 18 of the term (all calendar days including weekends and holidays) to be eligible for aid.


Dropping courses

To drop a class online, go to Student Self-Service, select student planning and navigate to plan and schedule. Check the class that you would like to drop and submit. You may print screen for your records as this will be your documentation of dropping the class.

To drop a class in person, you must complete an add/drop form at the Registration Office. You may also drop sections by mail, fax or by sending an email from your Delta email. You must include the department, class number, section number and your student ID number. If you are faxing or mailing this information, a signature is also required.

In order to be officially dropped from a course, you must complete and submit a drop to the Registration Office. If you stop attending a class without completing and submitting a drop, a failing grade may appear on your transcript. Deadlines may fall on a Saturday, Sunday or holidays when offices are closed. You may drop courses by letter (the postmark will be considered the drop date), by faxing a letter to 989-667-2221, by email to registration@delta.edu or online through Student Self-Service. Confirmation of receipt of drop is recommended by calling the Registration Office. If you drop within the first 11 days of the class, no grade will be recorded on your transcript. If you drop through week 12 of a class, a W grade will be issued (this varies for shorter courses). Courses may not be dropped after the 80 percent mark. 

Refunds are based on the date the add/drop is processed . Calendar days begin and include the first day of college class, Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Please refer to the refund schedule for complete information.

Student-initiated drops

For courses officially dropped within the refund period, no grade will be reported or recorded on your official Delta College transcript. If the course is officially dropped after the refund period and through 80 percent of the course (week 12 of a 15-week semester course) you will receive a grade of W – signifying "withdrawn".

If you do not officially withdraw, the instructor will assign an appropriate final letter grade ("A" through "F") in relation to total course requirements achieved.

Instructor-initiated drops

An instructor has the option of authorizing a grade of WI (withdrawal by instructor) for you if you have missed an excessive number of course hours of instruction or you lack the course prerequisites. This authorization may be initiated through 80 percent of the course and reported to the Registrar’s Office.

Upon receipt of an authorization, the Registration Office will notify you of the reason for the drop.

If you wish to appeal an instructor-initiated drop, the contact must be with the course instructor. If necessary, mediation may be requested by the appropriate Associate Dean. All appeals must be in writing, signed by you as the person requesting the appeal, and received within one week following notification of the drop.


Prerequisite waivers

When planning and registering for  courses you may notice the prerequisites assigned to a course. If you do not meet that requirement the system will not allow you to register yourself. In some cases courses will indicated that instructor permission is an acceptable way to bypass the prerequisite. If you have received permission to join a course in this manner forward that permission email to registration@delta.edu for our assistance registering. 

If a course does not list instructor permission is accepted as a prerequisite to enroll, but you believe you do meet the requirement, for instance by completing a similar course at another institution, you can seek permission to enroll by reaching out to the Associate Dean of the division in charge of the course you are interested in.
