For Students Who Are Away
Information about registration is available to help you select courses and plan for next semester.
- Be sure to check the course restrictions page to be sure you are eligible to register for each of your courses.
Registration times are randomly assigned by the system and will not be changed. We can not accommodate all of the various time and location situations for students who are away from campus. You can register anytime after your registration until 2 p.m. on the 2nd day. All times are EST.
Students who are away will be cleared for registration, but should still consult with your faculty advisor. If you have any other registration holds, you must contact the appropriate office directly.
Students who are away from campus have two options for registration:
- Register through WebAdvisor — access registration at or anytime after your assigned registration time. You have the same access and opportunities as students who are on campus. This is your best option, since you can make decisions about what to do in case of registration problems like closed courses or missing prerequisites.
- Email your course choices to firstname.lastname@example.org to be processed by our office. You MUST provide the department, course number, and section number for each course. In addition, you should have alternate choices listed in case we encounter closed courses or time conflicts for your primary courses. We will process your registration at your assigned time. We can not guess at what you might do when courses are closed or there are registration problems.
