LAFAYETTE — South Louisiana Community College has extended its registration deadline to Aug. 27 due to ongoing technical issues with its new online registration system, the college announced Tuesday in a news release.
Classes begin Monday, and initially, students had until Tuesday to register for classes.
Extending the registration period is one of “several steps” the college is taking to help make the process easier for students, SLCC Chancellor Natalie Harder said.
“We understand their frustration and are working diligently to address concerns and get students registered for classes,” Harder said. “We have even added mini-semesters within the traditional fall semester to help students take the courses they need.”
No late registration fees will be assessed this semester.
SLCC campuses have also extended office hours from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. Campuses are located in Lafayette, New Iberia, St. Martinville, Crowley, Ville Platte, Abbeville and Opelousas.
The college has also extended its deadline for hardship waiver applications to Sept. 7. Students in degree and technical programs may apply for a hardship waiver if they cannot afford tuition costs that are not covered by their financial aid awards.
