Please note the deadline to submit the completed TAP form to the FAS Registrar’s Office is Thursday, March 2nd, 2017. Be sure to obtain all necessary signatures in advance of the deadline. All TAP applications for FAS courses require the signatures of the student, their immediate supervisor, as well as their Personnel Officer, and course instructor. Please note, signature of your area personnel officer is required in all areas except in VPA, Financial Administration, and FAS (College Library does require Personnel Officer signature). Incomplete applications will not be processed. Deadline will apply and no exceptions will be granted.

The TAP fee for a one-semester course is $541.20. You will receive an online bill for the TAP fee from the Student Financial Services Office. Payment will be made online. The TAP fee will no longer be accepted by the Registrar’s Office. Note:  1) enrolling in a full-year course in the fall does not entitle you to the spring portion; a new TAP form must be filed and a spring TAP fee paid; 2) a "double", or intensive, course taken in one term is charged as two TAP courses for a total tuition rate of $1,082.40, unless covered by the extended service benefit. For questions regarding TAP eligibility, contact the TAP Office at 617-496-4001.

STAFF MAY NOT REGISTER FOR FAS COURSES ON A PASS/FAIL OR SAT/UNS BASIS IF A LETTER-GRADE OPTION IS AVAILABLE. IN ADDITION, STAFF MAY NOT ENROLL ON AN AUDIT/NO CREDIT BASIS.

Changing a Course

Staff who have registered for a course between January 23rd and March 2nd may CHANGE FROM ONE COURSE TO ANOTHER after TAP registration by filing an drop/add form by the add deadline, MONDAY, March 6th, with the approval of the Course Head and the Associate Registrar. If you are excluded from a course because it is over-enrolled, you may move to another course until March 6th. Your tuition will be refunded if you are excluded from a course and do not wish to enroll in another.  A letter stating that you were excluded, signed by the Course Head, must be filed at the Registrar's Office on the fourth floor of the Smith Campus Center, 1350 Massachusetts Avenue.

Dropping a Course

The LAST DAY TO DROP a course is TUESDAY, March 21st. One-half of the TAP fee will be refunded if you drop a course on or before this deadline. If you file the form by March 21st, the course will not appear on your record. Between March 22nd and May 3rd, you may file a withdrawal petition (if you have been given approval to do so by the Course Head and by the Associate Registrar) with no tuition refund. The course will remain on your record with a grade of WD (Withdrawn). If you do not file the drop form or withdrawal petition and do not complete the course, your record will show a permanent grade of ABS, INC or E (ABS if you do not take the final exam scheduled by the Registrar’s Office; INC or E in courses with no proctored final).
