Priority Registration Instructions  

  • Identify your first day of eligibility.
  • Register on-line through the self-service portal
  • You may change your schedule as many times as you wish during the priority registration time frame.
  •  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.

Closed Courses

  • If a course is full, you are advised to place yourself on the waitlist so that we are able to track students’ needs. 
  • If space becomes available and the COB registers you for the class, you will be contacted via your UM-Dearborn email.


Campus-wide Registration

Information is available through the Office of the Registrar. You can find information, such as:

  • Registration Timetable
  • Procedures and deadlines to add/drop/withdraw
  • Class schedules and descriptions. 
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.

Required Advising
Most 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 Plans
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.


All e-mail communication is done through your email account.  Students are responsible for the information sent to their address, so it is essential to check that account regularly.

Composing Messages
E-mails should be composed in a professional manner. When contacting an advisor, faculty, or any University employee, make sure to include your name and student ID number. Utilize correct form, punctuation, grammar, and spelling.

If you are contacting more than one advisor about the same situation, use the copy (cc) function in the address bar. Do not send the same message to multiple people individually.

Electronic Transcripts
If you have taken courses at another school and are utilizing an electronic transcript service to have them delivered to this office, order them to be sent to
