Advance Registration Process and Procedure

Advance Registration Process

  1. Complete and submit registration requests on-line according to the established schedule.
  2. Wild Card selections approved either in April or November will be recorded for you by the Office of Registration and Enrollment on your on-line Advance Registration Request Form. Students no longer interested in taking this course simply drop it during the open on-line registration window. Once the request form is submitted, you will not get a second chance to use Wild Card even if you later drop the course.
  3. Students who in April are approved for enrollment in a summer, fall or spring clinic or LTP course will have that course entered on their on-line course registration form by the Office of Registration and Enrollment. Students no longer interested in taking this course simply drop it during the open on-line registration window. Once the request form is submitted, you will not get a second chance in the same academic year to use the Clinic/LTP/Cardin Preference even if you later drop the course. Students who are admitted to a clinic/LTP in their second year but who do not take that course may not submit another preference form in the same academic year, but may submit the form again in the following year.
  4. List on the on-line Advance Registration Request Form [instructions] your course enrollment requests. Selections in excess of the credit limit may be dropped by the Office of Registration and Enrollment, except for evening students who have received prior permission to exceed the limit by submitting a Registration Status and Exception Request Form and switching to the Day program for billing purposes. Although students may submit on-line requests for more than the maximum credit limit, the Office of Registration and Enrollment will determine which credits will be dropped.
  5. Processing of on-line Advance Registration Request Forms assumes that students follow the rules, including course prerequisites (see on-line catalog course descriptions), conflicting class meeting times, repeat limits and class restrictions (for example, non-first year students registering for first year classes and vice versa). Although on-line registration does not enforce co-requisites and day/evening credit limitations,students not in compliance will be required to adjust their schedules.
  6. Sometime after Advance Registration OR&E will inform students by email when approved schedules have been posted on SURFS. Approved schedules also will be printed on the bill for tuition and fees (which will be sent to you prior to the start of the semester/summer session)
  7. To get on the wait list during advance registration for an overenrolled course (including those courses which have a scheduling conflict with the alternate course for which you will register), submit a paper add-drop form to the Office of Registration and Enrollment.
