Registration Dates & Deadlines


When to Register

Fall registration is now open for all students.

Registration Deadlines

There is no single deadline for registration. A class's registration deadline depends on the class start-date, length, and method of instruction (online, seated, or hybrid).

For classes 14 weeks or longer, students may add the class up to 48 hours after the start of the first class meeting. For fully online classes that are 14 weeks or longer, students may add the class up to 48 hours after the class’s start date (through the third day of class).

For classes shorter than 14 weeks, students may add the class until the class meets for the first time. For fully online classes that are shorter than 14 weeks, students may add the class through the end of the start date for the class.

Payment Deadlines

  • Friday, August 14, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. (noon) – if you register for classes before this time
  • Friday, August 21, 2020 at 12:00 p.m. (noon) – if you register for classes between August 14–August 21
  • At the time of registration – if you register for classes after August 21

Students must pay in full, set up a payment plan, or have financial aid fully processed and in place to hold their seats in their classes.

For more information on making payments, see the Pay in Full Tutorial or the Tutorial for Setting up a Payment Plan.

For help with verifying your financial aid status online, refer to our View Financial Aid Status Online Tutorial.

Financial Aid

It's NOT too late to apply for financial aid! You can view Financial Aid Dates & Deadlines on our website. Students who apply for financial aid late may need to set up a payment plan at Pay For Classes for possible reimbursement.

You can confirm whether you have financial aid in place by going to your Self-Service account.

Drop and Withdrawal Deadlines

There are multiple deadlines to drop and withdraw from classes for the current semester, depending on the dates of the class.
