When to Register
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.
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.
Our guiding principle is to grant priority status to (a) students in who participate in university sponsored or military activities which place predictable and specific time constraints on their schedules, and/or (b) students who have a documented need to enroll in courses taught (only) at specific times/locations in order to be academically successful. This currently includes:
- NCAA athletes
- Students identified by the Disability Resource Center (DRC).
- ROTC students
- Active military servicemembers, active reservists, and members of the Colorado National Guard
- CHE students in their first and second years only (as mandated by the current TRIO grant contract).
Related to that, our secondary principle is not to treat priority status as a perk or reward, and to exclude on-campus employment/volunteerism and off-campus employment/volunteerism.
Schedules available to be viewed on the website
- Summer and Fall Semester - Mid February
- Interim and Spring Semester - Second week of September
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.
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.
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.
|Number of credit hours you’ve earned||Your registration date|
|Graduate students||November 11|
|105 and above||November 12|
