Registration dates

When you'll know your registration date

We'll email you about 2 weeks before your registration opens to let you know that date and time are on the SSC. You'll be able to register any time between your registration open date and the add/drop (course change) deadline.

Your date and time may change, especially if you're a newly admitted student or a continuing student in a partial program. Check the SSC regularly for up-to-date registration information.

Time zones: Please note that registration times are listed in the Pacific Time Zone. If you're registering from outside this time zone, make sure you know when registration opens in your location.
