Students must register for classes at least one week prior to the session start date. Currently enrolled students can add or drop courses by accessing their WebAdvisor link under the shortcuts tab in their myFranklin account. Students utilizing this method of registration must still adhere to current University regulations regarding adding courses. Students can also register by completing a Course Add/Drop Form (available in the Office of Student Services or the Academic Advising Resource Center) and submitting it in one of the following ways:

  •  e-mail to (must be sent from your account)
  •  mail to: Student Services, Franklin University, 201 S. Grant Ave., Columbus, 
     Ohio 43215-5399
  •  drop-off at any Franklin University location
  •  schedule an appointment with an Academic Advisor

After a student has submitted a Course Add/Drop Form, the completion of required course prerequisites will be verified. Late registration or course additions after published registration deadlines are only accepted with Lead Faculty and Academic Advisor permission. Students with prior financial balances or financial aid “holds” must contact the Business Office prior to registering.

After initial registration by an Admissions Advisor, students can add or drop courses by accessing their personalized Web page at Students utilizing this method of registration must adhere to current University regulations regarding adding courses. Students with questions or need assistance with registering for their courses can email their Academic Advisor at for assistance.

After a student has registered, a confirmation copy of the schedule and fee statement will be forwarded to their Franklin University-issued e-mail account.

Late registrations or additions of courses after published deadlines are not accepted without the Program Chair, Lead Faculty, Instructor or Academic Advisor’s permission. Students with prior financial balances or financial aid “holds” may not be able to register for classes and must contact the Business Office directly. 

Students may request to be registered for a specific section and instructor but these course items are subject to change.

No credit is given for audited courses. Each auditor must do all the work required of a student enrolled in the course for credit, except take examinations. Fees and tuition for auditing are the same as those charged when courses are taken for credit. Audit status must be indicated in writing to the Office of Student Services no later than the end of the first week of the session in which the class is to be audited.

Upon receipt of a Certification Letter request form, the Registrar's Office will notify a student's employer, by letter, that the student has enrolled for a trimester or has completed a trimester's work. 

Franklin University participates in a cross-registration system with the other colleges and universities in the Higher Education Council of Columbus (HECC). These institutions are Capital University, The Columbus College of Art and Design, Columbus State Community College, DeVry University (Columbus, Ohio location only), Ohio Dominican University, The Ohio State University, Otterbein College, and the Pontifical College Josephinum.

Cross-registration allows full-time students at Franklin University to register for enrichment classes at other HECC institutions. Students will register, pay tuition and receive grades at Franklin University. To participate, undergraduate students must have earned at least 24 credit hours at Franklin University and must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.00. Course selection is limited to one per trimester and may not be more than a total of three per lifetime. Also, students may not cross-register for a course that is available at Franklin University. Cross-registration is not permitted during Summer Trimester.

Students must meet with the Registrar to make arrangements to cross-register.
