Please follow the registration procedures outlined by your program. Some programs manage course registrations for their department. Informational emails are sent to students providing information about their registration. If you were directed to complete your registration on your own, then use Self-Service to complete your graduate course registrations. Graduate students do not need advisor approval and thus take personal responsibility for course selection and degree completion (students may contact advisors for help in course planning).
Priority registration for Fall 2023 runs from March 27th- April 7th and begins each business day at 8:30 a.m. Summer 2023 registration opened on February 13, 2023. After April 7th, registration continues until classes begin. Self Service registration is open during weekends but is not monitored.
Important Notes for Registration
Please review the academic calendar for course changes and withdrawals for deadline dates.
Course inactivity, non-attendance, or failure to make or complete payment does not constitute a course drop or withdrawal. Students remain financially responsible for a course registration unless the student notifies the Registrar’s Office in writing to drop or withdraw from the course. Fees are assessed according to the current refund policy. Neglecting to drop or withdraw officially will result in a failing grade on the transcript.
Students should verify tuition and fees by visiting the Financial Aid page reporting the current cost of attendance.
The Waitlist function is not available on Self Service. If a course you want is full, complete registration on your other courses and then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org that lists the semester, course, and section of the course you wish to be on the waitlist for.
Students with disabilities who require accommodations should contact Disability Support Services.
Current students are encouraged to view grades, course schedules, classroom assignments using Self-Service. Please email email@example.com should you experience difficulties accessing Self-Service, and please include a brief description of the nature of the access issue.
Non-traditional and Summer Course Information
- Registration for each session ends on the day the session begins.
- Non-traditional course information:
- Students in 7- week classes may drop prior to the start of class. Once class begins, students may withdraw (not drop) and/or add classes during the first week of class. Withdrawal with a grade of W may occur as late as the fourth week of class, and withdrawal from class after the fourth week requires approval from the Dean of the School or College (by petition) and the student is graded WP or WF. Students may not withdraw after a course ends.
- Students in 1-week intensive classes and institute courses may only drop or add prior to the start of the course.
