Registration will occur over the week of July 15-19 in two rounds. At your designated registration time on July 15, you will be permitted to log into WIN and access registration. You will be allowed to register for up to 10 hours. Please note that this 10-hour limit will include the writing course assigned to your schedule. This initial round will remain accessible until 11:59 p.m. EDT on July 16. On July 17, at your designated time, registration will reopen for you to complete the remainder of your fall schedule, up to a max of 17 hours. This final round will remain open until 11:59 p.m. EDT on July 19. This process of registration occurring in two rounds will be similar to how registration will occur in future semesters.
You will receive a Course Preference Survey on July 12 that will help you organize your thoughts regarding choices of courses for which you hope to register. Once you complete your registration, you must submit the survey to help us learn more about your academic plans. This survey is due July 19.
