General tips for spring registration

It’s hard to believe that spring registration is just around the corner! As you build your schedule, we thought you might appreciate a few helpful tips and resources.

Spring registration is coming up quickly! Putting together your schedule doesn't have to be a chore. Use these tips, and you'll feel confident as you get ready to plan your courses.

Check your registration queue time and hold type. You can find this information by logging into MyU and selecting the Academics tab. Click on the Registration link on the top of the landing page. This will take you to your assigned time for spring registration. You can also find a general registration timeline on One Stop.

Review the four-year plan for your major. You should also check your APAS for accuracy. You should be using both of these tools (along with feedback from your academic advisor) to inform your registration decisions.

Review registration and grading policies. Be aware of the grade base option you select during registration. All of your major and minor requirements should be taken A-F. You can find more information about making changes to your registration and grading policies at One Stop.

Registration may take some patience and flexibility. Depending on your queue time and course availability, you might not get the schedule or courses you had hoped for initially. While there may not be a spot in a particular course now, keep an eye on sections that you want. Registration changes are frequent during this time, and you could get into your desired course with a little patience and perseverance. Ultimately, it is important to get a spot in a course you need so you are not off sequence with your major, so some flexibility on your part will go a long way in helping you get to graduation in a timely manner.

If you have additional questions or concerns, feel free to contact CSE Academic Advising. Advising drop-in hours are Monday-Friday 2:00-4:00 p.m. in Lind 105, and your advisor is just an email away. Happy registration!
