Registration

Register for Classes

Learn when classes start, when you can register, and how to register.

College Credit-Seeking Students

You can register for classes after you enroll, attend orientation, and meet with an academic advisor. Give yourself plenty of time to enroll based on when you want to start classes.

In addition to full semester (16-weeks) courses, courses are also offered within the full semester in 12-week, short (8-week) session, or mini (4-week) session terms. There is a priority registration period and an open registration period for each semester. Priority registration is when registration first opens for all terms in a semester. After priority and open registration end for a semester, you can still register for courses in terms within that semester that have not started yet.

Schedule Adjustment (Drop-Add) Periods

After registration ends, you can change your schedule (add and drop courses) for a given term during the schedule adjustment period for that term. The schedule adjustment period is the first and second weekday of the term and is the last days you can add courses for that term. Review registration policies to learn more.

Semester/Session Dates and When You Can Register: College-Credit Seeking Students
