Updated October 14, 2020
For the 2020-2021 academic year, registration will occur term-by-term rather than for the full academic year, as is our usual practice.
Please keep in mind that registration is first-come, first-served for most courses. For waitlisted courses, enrollment priority is determined by (1) student type (class year/degree program) and the (2) the date/time a student joins the waitlist. We anticipate that in-demand seats will fill quickly after each registration start time. Students should plan accordingly and be prepared to register when their registration window opens.
