Right Now This Term: Fall Pre-Registration

You are responsible for making sure that your registration is up-to-date. You should check your status of registration on WebSIS to make sure that you are correctly registered for all classes you are attending and to ensure classes that you are not attending are dropped. Changes to your registration (Adds/Drops) must be made by the following deadlines: Add Date was Friday, March 7, and Drop Date was Thursday, April 23. These were the deadline for adding/dropping classes from spring term registrations.

Students who missed the Add or Drop deadlines must petition the Committee on Academic Performance (CAP) in order to change their registrations. Petitions are available from the Petitions section of the CAP website or in the office of Undergraduate Advising and Academic Programming, room 7-104.

Fall Pre-Registration

On May 1, you may begin to pre-register on WebSIS for your summer and fall semester subjects. You should talk with your advisor in advance about what you plan to take. You must submit your Fall Pre-Registration by June 15 to avoid late fees. See the Registrar's website for additional details. Instructions for pre-registering are posted on WebSIS when online pre-registration opens. Deadlines and late fees are published in the Academic Calendar.

June 15 is also the deadline for listing your primary and alternative choices for CI-H/HW subjects using the Subject Selector as part of Pre-registration. Remember that the Communication Requirement is a paced requirement, and you must take a second Communication Intensive Subject in the Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences by the end of your sophomore year. To take one next fall, make your choices now. For the last fall term, 80% of students who used the selector received their primary choices.
