Registration Timeline for Upperclass Students
Fall 2017

Monday, April 24 – Monday, May 1 - Preregistration is open in PeopleSoft.

  • All on-campus students must meet with an advisor prior to preregistering (students should meet with an advisor by Thursday, April 28).
  • Preregister for four courses for Fall 2017.  There are no enrollment caps or instructor consent flags at this point.
  • Note any enrollment limits and priorities listed in the catalog description.  If you preregister for a limited enrollment course, think about an alternative in case you are later dropped from the course.
  • Note if you are preregistering for a multi-sectioned course (including lab or conference courses).  You may later be assigned to a different section of the course.

by July 3

  • First-year preregistrations are added to courses, beginning June 26. At this point upperclass students can see if their preregistration choices have overenrolled (closed).
