You can register for any available session on MyUI once your registration day and time have arrived, you have no registration holds, your U-bill is not past due, and you have been authorized to register by your advisor.

Your registration time will be listed on MyUI two weeks prior to Early Registration. MyUI allows you to browse courses by session. You can view the meeting time and days, course descriptions, prerequisites, textbooks, and the instructor(s) for the courses you are interested in. Use Schedule Builder before your registration time to build possible schedules. When your registration time arrives use Schedule Builder to enroll in all your courses at once. You can also use the Registration tab, choose the appropriate session then enroll in your courses one by one at your assigned time.

MyUI is available in the summer and winter sessions up until midnight the day before the session begins for all registration changes. Once the session begins you can still add and drop in MyUI but will be given information on permissions needed to make your change. Section changes and Hours changes will need to be processed using the Change of Registration form. Information on permissions/signatures needed can be found here.

MyUI is available in the fall and spring semesters up until 11:59 pm the night before the 6th day of the semester for all registration changes. Information on how to initial register, drop, add, or change sections or semester hours (s.h.) for courses on MyUI during this time can be found here. The exception is that students will not be able to drop their only (last) course on MyUI. 

Beginning the 6th day of Fall and Spring you can still add and drop in MyUI but will be given information on permissions needed to make your change. Section Changes and Hours Changes will need to be processed using the Change of Registration form. Information on permissions/signatures required can be found here.
