Early Registration and Late Registration

Early registration helps ensure each student a place in classes for the upcoming term, and helps the University adjust offerings to meet student needs.

Students are urged to take advantage of the designated period each term to meet with his/her advisor, plan ahead, and register early. Early registration is confirmed at the ensuing registration period. Early registration refers to preregistration for classes and registration confirmation by arranging for payment for classes.

The final step in registration is the payment of fees or arranging for alternate forms of payment. Until this step is completed, the student is not officially registered and is not eligible to attend classes. Students who attend class without completing registration may not receive academic credit for attendance or work completed.

Students should carefully plan and register for a schedule on the published registration dates for each term. However, students may register through the published late-registration period.

Students must complete registration by the published “last day to complete registration/add courses” deadline of each semester, and financial accounts must be reconciled by the last day of the semester to receive any transcript credit for the semester. Late registrants must make up missed work and are assessed a late fee.
