Guide to Course Selection and Registration for New Students

Welcome, New Transfer Students!

Registration for new transfer students will take place on Tuesday, November 14 at 9:00 a.m. EST. You will register online through MyAccess. Registration continues through the end of the fall semester, over the course of the winter break, and ends with the Add/Drop period, the last day of which is Friday, January 19.

The 9:00 start time is significant. Tuesday, November 14 is the day that all juniors, returning and new, register for classes. Returning students begin entering the system at 11:00 am. Your 9:00 start time gives you a brief window where you are basically alone in MyAccess adding courses that you need and want. Consider a kind of headstart; take advantage of this!
