Talk to the professor and the registrar to see if you can somehow override it. They may make an exception since you've done all the work, especially if the professor vouches for you and you show them what you've completed.

Damn.. I would try and fight that. Did your teacher not have a roster though? Or any online assignments to where you had to be enrolled to view them? If so, that could be used as 'evidence' that you've been attending. I hope it all works out OP(:

They were supposed to already be, more so if they paid for the course or a scholarship did. This wasn't at all their fault, it was the schools.

And if they don't, see if they'll return your money, and if possible, try to just test out of the course next semester.

"How did I pay for a course that I'm not registered in. Either you guys messed it up and need to give me course credit, or you guys tried to defraud me by hoping I wouldn't notice." :D

I would definitely talk to anyone you can to see if this can be reconciled. You can even talk to the professor to see if he/she will vouch for you.

When I was in school, professors would do a roll call, even in larger lecture classes, during the first class of the semester. This is so that those who did not hear their names would be able to make sure that they were enrolled in the course. Aside from the technical aspects, it appears that it is the school's fault beyond a reasonable doubt . I would take it up with the dean of your major, or, if necessary, to the regents of the university. Good luck.

This is what I was thinking. I only had 1 class that didn't call roll during the entire time I was in school. Plus now you can see if you have access to the course online, even if the professor doesn't use it. If you can't get in/don't see your course, you're not in.

Yeah, I agree its the schools fault. But I am really curious how OP didn't notice the financial end of it, if they weren't enrolled they wouldn't have been charged... unless OP is on scholarship I feel you would have to be really oblivious to not see an issue there.

Depending on the school... Mine cost different amounts until you hit 12 credits. 12-18 was the same amount of money paid, so OP could be taking 15 credits, paying for 12.

That's rather strange that it wasn't caught. The professor should have a roster of who all is enrolled. Unless it was a very large class and was just missed/overlooked. But yeah you should definitely talk to at least the professor about it to see what could be done to get credit for it.

Like others have suggested- talk with the teacher/professor and maybe even the principal. If you paid for the class, they need to either honor the enrollment or return your money. You could be in for a really though fight, so good luck!

Even with large classes, my professors do role call and learn students seats the best they can or make a chart for themselves, and call out if anyone is missing. First week even asked if anyone's name wasn't called out for the sheet.

See with your professor if you can keep atending the class and then next semester you can just have your grade added, instead of doing it again.
