Advice for Students

As registration approaches, we give students this advice:

Resolve your holds in advance.
Review course prerequisites and restrictions in advance.
Obtain online permissions in advance.

Students should perform all these steps before registration to prevent a crisis at registration time. Please help us spread the word!


If you work in an office that applies holds to student accounts, you should see an increase in student traffic before the registration period.

Registration begins at 7:00 a.m., when most offices are not yet open and unavailable to clear holds. If your office applies student holds, please be proactive and reach out to students who have not taken steps to resolve their holds. If you don’t know which students have your holds, please contact us!

Last Day to Withdraw

To withdraw from a course, students must review the withdrawal policy and submit a completed withdrawal form to the Registrar’s Office by 5:00 p.m. on November 20.
