Special Note for SUMMER REGISTRATION ONLINE
The registration deadline for summer courses varies. Students can register for a course up until the first day of class. Web registration for summer classes will also vary depending on the start date of each class. Web registration may close before the course starts, and students will need to register in an alternative fashion (see above alternatives).
If you receive the following error message — registration
changes are not allowed. Course status dates not within range
for part of term — it means that web registration has closed
for this specific course. This means one of two things:
- The course has already started and you can no longer register for it.
- Web registration has closed for this course. You can register in person
in Demaray 151 or you can fax or mail in a registration form. Click here to download the summer registration form.
Please direct any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.

be taken care of before you register.

meet the special requirement, and you feel that you have unique/extenuating
circumstances that would warrant an exception, you can contact
the instructor for permissions (also called an “override”)
to allow you in the class. Instructors and administrative assistants
in the schools can override these if they believe you can be successful
in the class.
- You must have a specific class standing (freshman, sophomore,
junior or senior) to take the class.
- You must be accepted into the major to take the class.
- You must have taken a pre-requisite to take the class.
