Important information to remember about registration:

Through the end of late registration, registration changes should be made through Web Advisor.  After late registration, any schedule change must be submitted on the appropriate form to the Registrar's office for processing.  For dropping or withdrawing (and clarification of the difference), please review our Drop vs Withdrawal page.

Summer and Fall registration will begin in early April, while Spring registration will begin in early November.  Early registration opens by academic level. Review the academic calendar for exact date that your current academic level will be able to register.  (Your current academic level is based on the number of cumulative completed credits you bring into the term. This does not include in progress hours you may currently be enrolled in.) 

Each registration period begins at 8:00 a.m. the day listed on the academic calendar.  Students who have logged in prior to 8:00 a.m. may encounter difficulty, as the registration system will not be able to read their correct registration eligibility.  For this reason, if you are registering for courses the day your group becomes eligible, log in to your Portal / Web Advisor at or after 8:00 a.m.

Undergraduate Academic levels are determined as such:

  0 -29 cumulative credit hours completed  Freshman 
 30-59 cumulative credit hours completed  Sophomore 
 60-89 cumulative credit hours completed  Junior
 90 +   cumulative credit hours completed  Senior

Undergraduate degree completed, seeking second undergraduate degree

 Post Baccalaureate
