Registration Information

Priority Registration

Priority registration for the summer and fall semesters begins late March or early April.

Priority registration for the spring semester begins in November.

Registration times during the week of priority registration are assigned by a student’s class level and last name. For registration purposes, a student’s class level is determined by the number of credit hours he or she has completed. Summer course hours that are in progress are not counted towards this class level. Fall registration times will be based on prior coursework and spring registration only. Summer registration is available to all students on the first day of priority registration regardless of class level. During the week of priority registration for the spring and fall semesters, students are able to register as follows:

  • Monday = Graduate students, Senior-level students who are graduating in the next semester.
  • Tuesday = Senior-level students without an application to graduate on file, or who are not yet registering for their final semester.
  • Wednesday = Junior-level students.
  • Thursday = Sophomore-level students.
  • Friday = Freshman-level students.

For more information on class level, please see the Class Standing page.

Non-degree students and new incoming freshman students will not be permitted to register during priority registration. For Non-Degree registration information, please see the Undergraduate Admissions site. For new freshman registration information, please see the New Student Schedules page.
