Spring 2018 Enrollment Cancellation Update

Please note an important change: Bowie State University will have one enrollment cancellation for spring 2018 semester, taking place at 5:00 pm on Tuesday, January 30, 2018. Spring registration will close after enrollment cancellation, and students will not be re-enrolled in classes.

To ensure that you remain enrolled in your spring 2018 classes, take the following steps by Monday, January 29, 2018:

  1. Check the status of your financial aid award, if applicable, by logging into Bulldog Connection.
  2. Make sure that you have accepted (or rejected) your financial aid award.
  3. Check your Bowie State email account to see if you received a message from the Office of Financial Aid about missing or incomplete documentation.
  4. Pay your student account bill in full if you have an outstanding balance after you received a financial aid award.
  5. Check Bulldog Connection regularly for updates on your student account information.
