Registration and Records

Advisement and Registration

Full-time faculty members are responsible for advising and registering newly admitted students, students who are currently enrolled in Coastal Pines Technical College (CPTC) courses, and students who are returning to CPTC after not enrolling in classes for two or more academic terms.

The Academic Affairs Dean for Secondary Initiatives is responsible for coordinating advising and registration of high school dually enrolled students. All other new, current and returning students are assigned to advisors based on the student’s academic program. Advisors focus on assisting students in completing their required program curriculum in a timely manner and earn their academic award.

Enrollment Verification

Coastal Pines Technical College has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse (NSC) to provide enrollment verification certifications for students through NSC Student Self Service. NSC Student Self Service enables CPTC students to print official enrollment verification certifications on demand via our secure student portal, BannerWeb, at no charge.


Enrollment for the term is not complete until the student has properly completed registration and paid all fees due. Students who receive any type of financial aid may visit the financial aid office each term or review their BannerWeb account to ensure that financial aid support is adequate to cover that term’s fees. Students will be dropped from the courses for which they have attempted to register if fees are not paid before the payment deadline each term.

Schedule Changes

The official drop period is the first three business days of the term. Courses dropped during this period will not appear on the student’s academic record.

The official add period is the first seven calendar days of the term.

Withdrawal from College

Formal withdrawal is accomplished by completion and submission of a Withdrawal form. This form is available to students via BannerWeb, CPTC website or in Student Affairs.

Students who withdraw from a course after the end of the third business day of the term shall receive a grade of ‘W’, ‘WP’, or ‘WF’ and shall receive no refund of tuition and fees.

In order to receive a 100% refund, the form must be completed BY THE STUDENT and submitted to Student Affairs by closing time on the third business day of the term.
