Spring 2015 Registration Announcements

Spring registration will happen between October 27 – November 7!  You can be prepared by checking your degree progress, knowing your registraiton times, and requesting Temporary Prerequisite Waivers if needed.

Spring 2015 Registration Dates:

  • October 27 – November 7: Students will begin registering throughout this two-week period based on their progress towards degree completion.  You will have another chance to adjust your schedule in January.
  • Add/Drop: Tuition will be due by 5:00pm on Thursday, January 8th.  Registration will re-open again on Thursday, January 15th and classes will begin on Tuesday, January 20th.

Be Prepared!

1. Check Your Interactive Degree Audit:

 You can check your progress towards your degree using the Interactive Degree Audit. When re-running an existing audit or requesting a new one, you also have the option to have the audit count ‘future registered courses’.  This way you can make sure the classes you register for are keeping you on track!

2. Check the Course Schedule & Your Registration Information Sheet (RIS):

3. Request Temporary Prerequisite Waivers:

If you need to register for an ECO class but you don’t have the prerequisite coursework posted to your record yet, you will need a Temporary Prerequisite Waiver submitted before you register for your ECO course(s). 

4. Still Want Some Guidance?

  • Registration advising is OPTIONAL for Economics majors, but appointments will be available from Monday 10/16 through Thursday 11/6.  Please call us at 512-471-2973 or stop by BRB to schedule your appointment.
  • Our front desk staff can also assist you with many of your registration questions.  Check out the Registration FAQ page too.
