Priority Registration

Priority registration is the first registration period for the upcoming semester. The first four days are reserved for current students by the number of earned credit hours.

Priority Registration Day 1: 45 or more earned credit hours required
Priority Registration Day 2: 30 or more earned credit hours required
Priority Registration Day 3: 15 or more earned credit hours required
Priority Registration Day 4: all current students may register
On Day 5, registration is allowed for all current and new students, with no earned credit hours requirements.

Note: At the conclusion of Priority Registration, there is a tuition and fees payment deadline. All tuition and fees must be paid (by financial aid, you, or a third party) by this deadline or your classes will be dropped. Students who are dropped from their courses will also incur a 48-hour registration hold before being allowed to re-register.

Regular Registration

Regular registration opens after the Priority Registration payment deadline. Regular registration is available for all students, current and new, but class availability may be limited due to priority registration activity. You are encouraged to register during priority registration for the best selection.

If you were unable to find space in a desired class during priority registration, you will want to review those classes again as soon as regular registration begins due to the possibility of seats coming available from students being dropped for non-payment.

Note: At the conclusion of Regular Registration, there is a tuition and fees payment deadline. All tuition and fees must be paid (by financial aid, you, or a third party) by this deadline or your classes will be dropped. Students who are dropped from their courses will also incur a 48-hour registration hold before being allowed to re-register.

Final Registration

Final registration opens after the Regular Registration payment deadline. You are strongly encouraged not to wait until final registration, as many classes will already be filled.

If you were unable to find space in a desired class during priority/regular registration, you will want to review those classes again as soon as final registration begins due to being dropped for nonpayment.

Drop/Add

Once the semester begins, the first three consecutive days of the semester (not counting Saturday, Sunday or a holiday) are available for Drop/Add. You may freely drop and add courses as you wish, but take care not to drop a class without knowing you can enter another. At this late date, if you drop a class and cannot add (primarily due to no seats being available), you may not be able to re-enter the class you just dropped due to someone else already taking the seat.

Note: If you have not registered prior to the Drop/Add period (or were dropped for non-payment or any other reason), but are still eligible to register, you may do so; however, a late fee will apply for any “new” registration at this time.

At the conclusion of Drop/Add, there is a tuition and fees payment deadline. All tuition and fees must be paid (by financial aid, you, or a third party) by this deadline or your classes will be dropped. There will be no opportunity to add a class after this point.
