About priority registration

The staggered priority registration schedule grants registration access by class standing throughout the week of Oct. 31 to Nov. 4, allowing upper-level students to register for the courses they need to complete their degree requirements before those classes reach their enrollment limits. The process is designed to reduce time to graduation and enhance connectivity to the online registration system.

Priority registration is cumulative, meaning that once students have reached their assigned day for registration, they can continue registering on subsequent days as well.

Winter 2017 priority registration schedule:

  • Graduate students: Monday, Oct. 31, 7 a.m.-midnight
  • Seniors (88+ credits): Tuesday, Nov. 1, 7 a.m.-midnight
  • Juniors (56-87 credits) and APEX Scholars: Wednesday, Nov. 2, 7 a.m.-midnight
  • Sophomores (29-55 credits): Thursday, Nov. 3, 7 a.m.-midnight
  • Freshmen (0-28 credits) and post-baccalaureates: Friday, Nov. 4, 7 a.m.-midnight

Class standing (senior, junior, sophomore or freshman) is based on the number of credit hours a student has completed at the time of registration. Class standing does not include course credits a student is currently taking but has not yet completed.

Students will need to resolve any financial aid issues before registering for courses.

Registration continues through Dec. 31 for winter courses.
