Registrar’s Office

Welcome! We provide services to students, faculty, staff, and alumni related to the curriculum, enrollment, classroom and final exam scheduling, academic requirements and records, the catalogue, grading, transcripts, certifications, diplomas, and more. Please feel free to contact us by email, telephone, or in person.


FALL COURSE SELECTION (see Schedule below)

Students should contact their advisor(s) to be cleared to select Fall courses, even if they are currently on leave.

Course selection is not available to students with unfulfilled Wellness requirements or financial holds, and students on leave in the Fall. See “Registration Status (Fall)” for more information.

Course Selection is NOT a first-come, first-served system. Initial student schedules are not final.

After April 24th, over-enrolled courses will be pruned according to the course Rules and multi-sectioned courses will be balanced before the system re-opens for Add-Drop in May. Enrollment in first-year (mostly 100-level) courses will be confirmed later, after first-years have selected courses in July and, for lower-level language courses, after the language placement exams in September.
