When to Register

New registration time 7 am

 Registration dates for undergraduates students (Fall and Spring terms) are based on completed credit hours, which does not include hours that you are currently registered for.

Please note: Do not use the credit total shown in Degree Works

Summer registration opens for everyone on the first Monday in April.

Priority Registration

In general, students with the most credit hours register before students with fewer hours, though priority registration is granted to specific groups with unique scheduling needs.

Schedules available to be viewed on the website

  • Summer and Fall Semester - Mid February
  • Interim and Spring Semester - Second week of September

Incoming Freshmen

All new incoming freshman are required to attend a Freshman Orientation here on campus. We’ll have an advising session during which you can register for classes.

Current Students

Undergraduate students are given priority for registration based on the number of credit hours you've earned, which doesn’t include any courses you're currently taking. See the registration schedule below for specific dates

New Transfer Students

If you’re a new incoming transfer student, you’ll want to attend a Transfer Orientation to help you get going with registration. If you can’t attend Orientation, you may contact your major’s department directly for advising and to receive your PIN number. You will then register according to the number of credit hours that have been transferred at that point.

Other Students

Non-degree seeking, Aims Cooperative, high school concurrent, and senior citizen students register after current students. Please see the registration schedule  below for specific dates.
