Undergraduate Day Classes and School of Continuing and Professional Studies Students

Degree-seeking continuing and professional studies students may register for open, regular semester day classes at the end of the early registration period each semester. The date is published online in Navigator, and typically falls in late November in the fall semester for spring registration and in late April for fall registration. Non-degree students may register on the official “space available registration” date, typically the week prior to the start of classes. 

New students will need to use the first time self-service registration to create a Navigator account before registration. Payment for non-degree students in full is due at the time of registration. Degree-seeking students may pay at the time of registration or choose to be billed. This registration method will be available at the beginning of each semester and will end on the last day of the day school add/drop period. 

Summer and Fall 2017 Registration dates
Registration for all students is now open.


Students sign up for classes through their Navigator accounts during their assigned registration periods. Please log into your Navigator account to search for class offerings. For best course selection, students are encouraged to sign up for classes as soon as they are able to register for a specific term. Tools such as schedule planner (available in Navigator to undergraduate students) may also assist you with planning your schedule.
