Registration Dates - Fall

Fall Semester 2016:
Priority Registration: March 28 (Mon.) - April 12 (Tue.)

Priority registration is the period in which students may begin enrollment for the following academic term. Dates for Priority Registration are posted per term on the Academic Calendar. Registration appointment times are assigned to avoid overloading the registration system during the high demand period. Appointment times are available through MyRED approximately two weeks before the beginning of priority registration.  Before priority registration, students may access the Enrollment section of MyRED to place classes in their shopping cart, but the enrollment process cannot be completed until the designated appointment time.

Appointment times are assigned to eligible students based on their current class level (actual earned hours). Within each class level appointment times are distributed randomly each term from earliest to latest. The priority class levels are:

Graduate Students
Seniors (89 credit hours or more)
Juniors (53-88 credit hours)
Sophomores (27-52 credit hours)
Freshmen (0-26 credit hours)

Priority Registration is not open to students who will be new, first-time freshmen, new transfer students, or unclassified (e.g., students-at-large and visiting students) undergraduate students.

New, first-time freshmen and new transfer students are to follow the New Student Enrollment information mailed to them.

Unclassified students (e.g., students-at-large and visiting students) will be able to register on or after Wednesday, April 13, 2016.

If you are an undergraduate student and have not been admitted to the University, contact the Office of Admissions, 1410 Q Street.

If you have already earned a bachelor's degree, have completed admission to the University, and have not received an appointment time, contact the Graduate Studies Office, 1100 Seaton Hall, 1525 U St.

Open Registration: April 13 (Wed.) - Aug 21 (Sun.)

During Open Registration, no appointment is needed and initial registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Any student who is eligible to enroll may access MyRED.

Late Registration: August 22 (Mon.) – August 29 (Mon.)

During Late Registration, initial registration for the term is on a first-come, first-served basis, but students will be charged a $25.00 late registration fee for an initial registration for the term that occurs after August 22. This fee will appear on your first billing for tuition.

You are encouraged to register for classes during Priority Registration or Open Registration for the best course selection and to avoid the extra expense involved with Late Registration.
