How do I add or drop a class after the start of the semester?
Before the end of the second week of classes, you can add or drop a class through WebAdvisor for no fee. After the end of the second week of classes, you must file a Change of Enrollment form with the ABSW Registrar and pay a $100 fee. Forms are available from the Registrar.
How do I ask for a grade to be changed?
Change of Grade forms must be submitted by the instructor of the course. Student should contact the instructor regarding any changes or questions regarding his/her grade.
How do I register for a class at another GTU school?
IF you are taking the class during the Fall, Spring, or Intersession terms, registrar for GTU classes in the same way that you would register for an ABSW class. During the summer, you will need to go to register directly with the school offering the course.

How do I register for courses at ABSW?
Registration for ABSW students occurs in two phases. The first phase involves meeting with student's advisor to select courses and then registering for courses online using WebAdvisor. Before a student can register online, all outstanding fees must be paid in full. The second phase involves coming to the ABSW campus and paying for the courses for which you have registered online.

How do I replace a lost library card?
Contact the ABSW Registrar to obtain a new card. When you receive your new card, you will need to take it to the GTU library and have it activated.
How do I sign-up for a Special Reading Course?
To register for a SRC, you must have the approval of the faculty member with whom you want to work. Upon the approval of the faculty member, complete a SRC form. This form can be obtained from the ABSW Registrar. This form must be completed and signed by the faculty member administering the SRC, the student's advisor, and the Academic Dean. Once the form is complete, it should be submitted to the ABSW Registrar for processing.
How do I take an "Incomplete" for a class?
First you must receive permission from the instructor of the course for taking an incomplete. Second, obtain from the ABSW Registrar a Petition to Take An Incomplete form. Third, fill out the form and obtain the instructor's signature. Fourth, submit completed form to the ABSW Registrar for processing. Please note that an "I" will be permanent on your transcript, but will be accompanied by your final grade and will not affect your GPA. If the incomplete work is not done before the 3rd Friday after the end of the term, the grade for the incomplete class automatically becomes an "F".
