Starting this fall, students must register at least one week before the start of the term and will no longer be able to register up until the day classes start for all credit classes. This change is meant to allow students sufficient time to prepare for classes, including meeting with an advisor and ordering books, and to ensure students don't miss any class sessions due to late registration.​ Deadline dates are below:
