Your uniqname is required to access important resources, including University email and the course registration system.

- A University ID card, or MCard, is required for access to several University services.
- After you register for courses, you may obtain a card at the University Center.
- Online students who live out of the area will receive a card in the mail after the beginning of the semester.

Register for Courses
As a newly-admitted graduate student at UM-Dearborn, you may register for your courses directly in the Banner student registration system.
After the first day of classes, you will gain access to My UM-Dearborn. My UM-Dearborn, the student portal, allows you to view important campus announcements, see tasks that you need to complete, schedule appointments for some offices, get answers to questions and access key university resources.
- Review the first-term course recommendations we attached to your admission email from the College of Business. Note the Course Reference Number (CRN) associated with each course.
- Register for courses directly in the Banner student registration system.
- Dropping, adding, and withdrawing:
- You may drop or add courses throughout the drop/add period. However, keep in mind that many faculty restrict registration after their courses have met for the first time. Group projects often begin during the first class session.
- If you decide not to attend classes at all after registering, you must officially withdraw by the drop/add deadline in order to avoid paying tuition and fees. Read the Registrar's detailed term withdrawal information.
