New! Spring Registration Ends Earlier Than Usual

If you’re a returning student, you may think you know how registration works. But a few things will be different this time, so pay attention.

Registration for Spring will end Jan. 16, 2013 — several days before classes start on Jan. 22. So it’s more important than ever before to register early.

Flex term registration will also stop on Jan. 16 and start again on Jan. 22.

Have questions? Contact an academic advisor at your college as soon as possible.

Get More From Your Winter Break
