Registration Procedure

  • Walk-in Registration is available Monday & Thursday 8:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. and Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

    Although we encourage students to use the Web Registration system, some courses require written permission and must be elected in person. Walk-in Registration is held at the Enrollment Services counter, 1169 University Center (UC).

    Students will not be allowed to register prior to their appointed day as shown on the "Registration Timetable." If a student misses his/her appointment, he/she will be able to register anytime thereafter during scheduled registration times.

    To register, students must fill out a Registration, Add/Drop Form (approved and signed by an advisor if required by the student’s academic unit).  Forms are available at the academic unit in which the student is enrolled or at the Enrollment Services counter.

    Upon registering, if you notice an error on your registration confirmation slip, have it corrected immediately. If you wish to change your schedule afterward, you must do so during the scheduled registration times or you must wait until the drop/add period. If after registering you decide not to attend this term, you must withdraw from the term.

  • The Web Registration system simplifies information transmission and retrieval through the use of the Internet.

    Web Registration Availability

    Web Registration will be available 6:00 a.m. to 11:45 p.m. (approximately 17 hours per day) during scheduled registration days, see the "Registration Timetable" section. The system may not be available some weekends due to routine system work or upgrades. Students are eligible to use the system to register beginning on the date listed in the registration timetable or anytime thereafter while Web Registration is available. The system will not accept a student's registration prior to their assigned date. The system automatically checks the date and will not allow you to register earlier.
