Beginning dates for specific terms are listed in the university calendar. Registrations are permitted within the first week of a regular quarter for all students and the first week of the eight-week interim term for new students only. Any subsequent changes in a student's registration (including class periods and adding or dropping courses) must be completed on a change of registration form and approved by the student's advisor or the academic dean.
Students registered in a given term are encouraged to register for the following quarter. There are advantages to doing so, including a greater selection of courses.
