    • Registration Timetable
    • Procedures and deadlines to add/drop/withdraw
    • Class schedules and descriptions. 
  • Priority Registration: March 25-27, 2019

    Priority registration gives COB students the opportunity to register on-line for their business courses before anyone else on campus. This allows business students the first chance to register for their business courses.  It occurs in October and March each year. Students are notified of priority registration dates and required advising by an e-mail from the COB Student Services Office. 

    Priority Registration Timetable for Summer and Fall 2019

    Priority Registration Instructions

    • Identify your first day of eligibility.
    • Register on-line through UM-Dearborn Connect.
    • You may change your schedule as many times as you wish during the priority registration time frame.
    • If a course is full, you are advised to place yourself on the waitlist so that we may track our students’ needs. The COB monitors full sections. If space becomes available and the COB registers you for the class, you will be contacted via your UM-Dearborn email.
    •  Once the priority registration period is over, you may adjust your business courses and register for non-business courses during the campus-wide registration period. You can find your first day of eligibility on the registration timetable.



  • Registration Holds

    There are instances when students have a hold on their registration. Any student who has a registration hold must speak with an advisor to have a hold removed prior to registering for an upcoming semester. Students having holds are notified of this by email from the Student Services Office.

    Prebusiness Advising
    All prebusiness students are required to meet with an academic advisor twice a year in order to review their progression toward BBA admission. 

    • August 1 begins the advising period for winter registration.
    • January 1 begins the advising period for summer and fall registration.

    Graduation Plan
    BBA students who are approaching senior standing are required to complete a Graduation Plan. This is a term-by-term course plan which identifies the program requirements still needed for completion of the BBA and the best course of action to complete them.

    Students whose cumulative, COB, or concentration GPA has dropped below 2.0 are placed on probation. These students are required to speak with an advisor concerning probationary status and sign a probation contract.
