It's time to choose your classes!
Once you’ve accepted your offer of admission, you’re ready to sign up for summer registration—a one-day, mandatory program in which you'll meet with your advisor and register for classes.
Are you an out-of-state or international student?
We get that you may not be able to make it to campus due to excessive distance. If you live more than 500 miles away, you may be able to meet with an academic advisor and register for classes online. Review your admitted checklist to see if you qualify.
How to Prepare
Complete your college registration homework in advance.
Finish your homework and any required placement tests at least 2 weeks before your registration date so you're able to register for the courses you need. Homework will be available online starting in April and placement tests in May.
Remember your password.
You’ll use your NetID and NetID password to log in to campus computers and the course registration system.
Bring along an official photo ID.
You must have a valid form of identification (for example, a driver’s license or passport) to get your student ID card.
If you're a transfer student, don't forget your course syllabi.
You'll need these for any non-articulated courses listed on your course report.
Wear comfy clothes and walking shoes.
You’ll be walking around campus to get to different buildings during registration, so be sure to dress for the weather!
Know where you're going.
Refer to our directions for information about parking in the North Campus Parking Deck.
Get to know the university, your classmates, and your college better as you meet with an advisor to map out your academic strategy and select fall classes.
