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:
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, November 11, 2015.
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: November 11 (Wed.) 2015 - January 10 (Sun.) 2016
During Open Registration, no appointment is needed and initial registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Any student who is term activated and eligible to enroll may access the list of courses on MyRED to make their class selections.
Late Registration: January 11 (Mon.) – January 19 (Mon.) 2016
During Late Registration, students may register for classes on a first-come, first-served basis. A late registration fee of $25.00 will be charged to students that complete initial registration for the term during this time. This fee will appear on your first tuition bill.
Students 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.
