New students, both graduate and undergraduate, cannot register for classes until all requirements for admission to the university are met. After admission requirements are met, new students will register in accordance with the procedures set out in the Schedule of Classes. Specific information for each semester's registration procedures is given in the front section of the Schedule of Classes for that particular semester.
Former students returning to the university after an absence of a semester or more must file a notice of intent to register for the semester or summer session in which they plan to enroll. The notice of intent to register is filed with the Registrar's Office.
