Schedule of Registration Appointments for Current Students

Enrollment appointments are assigned based on the number of units that students have completed. Continuing students are eligible to register for classes during General Registration as are returning students from an approved Leave of Absence.

Registration appointments are assigned approximately one week prior to registration for the next term (subject to change when the University converts to a semester calendar).  Appointments may be viewed online in the Student Center in Bronco Direct.  Unit limitations apply to each of the registration periods.  These unit limits include only enrolled units. Waitlisted units are not included in the unit limit. Students may waitlist up to a maximum of 9 units. For detailed information about "Waitlisting" please click here.

The chart below shows the first day of the registration appointment provided to each of the class levels. For more information on your class level, see the section under Class Levels below.

Note: Applicants for graduation that are within 20 units of degree completion will receive an earlier appointment than other students.
