Undergraduate Student Registration Schedules

Spring 2019 preregistration begins 2 December, 2018 at 8 a.m. and continues through 6 December, 2018 at 4:00 p.m.

Undergraduate students will be preregistered for all spring courses, including liberal arts courses, based on the advising course plan approved by their academic and faculty advisors. Students may request changes to ONLY LIBERAL ARTS courses during preregistration time; no changes will be made to math/science/major courses. Changes to an existing class schedule during preregistration are by approval of academic advisor only. Students must request changes in person according to the posted schedule below. Academic advisors are available on a first come first served basis; students are expected to prepare any course request changes prior to meeting with their academic advisor. Course/schedule changes are subject to course availability and force requests will be accepted beginning 13 January, 2019 (first day of spring classes.) Please see information below for forcing policies.

Students should check the MyRecord tab in the Howdy portal well before preregistration begins to ensure all holds have been cleared; if a student has a registration hold, advisors will be unable to preregister or make schedule adjustments until all registration holds have been cleared.

An individual student's preregistration start date and time is based on the criteria below.

Force request policies:

-Please note, a force request submission does NOT guarantee registration into a full course/section.

-We do not force into full sections to accommodate time/instructor changes. If a seat opens up in a student’s preferred section, student may add the section thru Howdy or with the assistance of an academic advisor.

-Academic Services will review the force request to determine if the student MUST have the course, or if there are alternate options for course registration in a given semester.

-All force request must be submitted through the Academic Services Office, who will then review with program chairs and faculty to determine seat availability. Students should NOT collect any signatures from faculty or program chairs prior to submitting the force request form.

-Priority is given based on classification, e.g., Seniors, Juniors, Sophomores, Freshmen; as well as the student’s approved advising course plan.
