  • Late registration fee: $100.00


If you wish to register for a course after the Add Period, you must submit the written approval (e-mail is acceptable) of the course instructor and a senior school administrator of the school in which the course is offered and pay a $100 late fee. The fee is assessed only once per term regardless of the number of courses you are registered for after the Add Period. The fee is assessed even if you are adding a different section of a course you dropped that term.

Auditor Discount

Golden Gate University offers a discount of one-third off the cost of a course for students who choose to audit a course. You must select audit status when you register. Should you register for a course in non-audit status, and later change to audit, no refund will be given. Audited courses are not eligible for federal financial aid.
