Advance Registration

All students who have completed full Student Disability Services (SDS) affiliation are eligible for advance registration through the Office of the University Registrar. This accommodation allows SDS affiliated students to schedule courses prior to their designated window. Students are strongly encouraged to schedule courses within the advance registration window to prepare a schedule that meets their specific needs. This also assists SDS staff with coordinating accommodations prior to the beginning of each semester.

Students are notified of their advance registration window during Fall and Spring semesters. Registration typically occurs during the months of October and April. Students must complete full SDS affiliation to be eligible for the accommodation. Provisionally affiliated students are not eligible for advance registration. University holds and course restrictions may impact the ability to register for courses. Student should contact the Office of the University Registrar regarding university holds. Advance registration does not supercede course restrictions and SDS staff do not have the ability to force add students to courses. Students are encouraged to speak with their academic departments regarding course restriction concerns.

For more information regarding advance registration, please contact the SDS office on your campus:

When can I access my advance registration accommodation?

Advance registration is available for eligible students scheduling for fall and spring semesters; winter and summer term courses should be scheduled when the course list is released for each term. Generally, the winter term course list is released in May of the previous year and the summer term course list is released in December of the previous year.

Incoming first-year students are not eligible for advance registration and should discuss individual scheduling considerations with their SDS access coordinator.
