How Are Priority Registration Dates and Times Assigned?
Registration start dates and times for currently enrolled degree -seeking students are automatically assigned based on the number of credits you have completed (including transfer credits).
Students’ academic information is stored in a database. The database runs a process that evenly divides all currently registered degree students into a group, based on total number of completed credits. Completed, or "earned" credits, do not include courses "In-Progress".
Registration times are assigned at half-hour increments across five (5) business days from 9am - 5:30pm Eastern Standard Time. Assignment times are not the only time you may register--you may continue to make changes to your schedule through the add/drop period. Click here for the Academic Calendar and registration dates.
Can I Choose a Different Registration Start Time?
The Registrar’s Office will not change registration assignment times for any reason. The process is automated based on earned credit amounts. Moving a student to an earlier date/time would require the system to push students with more completed credits to later days/times, to keep to group max limits. This would be unfair, and against the rules of the automated process. Remember, the time assigned is not the only time you may register; it is just the first time you have access.
Are Transfer Credits Considered When Assigning Dates?
Yes, transfer credits are included in the total amount of credits each student completed/earned.
Do Courses I'm Registered for This Semester Count as Credits "Completed"?
No. The total amount of completed credits only includes courses for which you have
received final grades, not courses In-Progress.
