When can I register?

Students can register at different times due to their classification at the university. If you are a currently enrolled student, the date is when registration opens, not when you have to register by. If you are not attending classes during the semester, you are able to register at the date displayed for 'Open Registration' and thereafter!

Earned hours DO NOT include the courses in which you are currently registered for or any developmental (DSP) course work.

Example 1: At the end of Spring you had 40 earned hours (no DSP hours). You are currently registered for 12 hours; you would register on October 27.  (40 earned hrs - 0 DSP hrs = 40 earned hrs)

Example 2: At the end of Spring you had 30 earned hours (6 DSP hours). You are currently registered for 15 hours; you would register October 28. (30 earned hrs - 6 DSP hrs = 24 earned hrs)

What is Course Choice Counts?

In order for federal aid to pay for courses in your major, minor, or other degree requirements, it must be part of your program of study or be necessary to earn the total hours required for your degree.  Taking courses not a part of your program of study could result in receiving less federal financial aid and potentially having to pay for courses out-of-pocket. Learn more about Course Choice Counts below!

Course Choice Counts

You can check if/how the classes you are advised for fit into your Degree Plan with the Degree Works 'What-If' video below:
