Early Registration for Continuing Students

Students will have the opportunity to register during two registration periods: 1) Early Registration for Continuing Students; and 2) Open Registration. Early Registration for Continuing Students allows students to register on a priority basis during pre-assigned dates.

Early Registration Enrollment Appointments are assigned only to those students who have registered for UC classes within the last three (3) semesters. New students and returning students not recently enrolled may begin registering during Open Registration. 

Priority is determined by the number of hours a student has earned and will include any transfer credit that has been awarded. It will not include hours for which the student is currently registered. The schedule of pre-assigned dates will be available from the calendars page under "Early Registration Schedules." 

Emails are sent to continuing students with their specific enrollment appointment day & time. When assigned, Enrollment Appointments can also be viewed under "Enrollment Dates" in the Catalyst Student Portal

Enrollment appointment times open every 30 minutes 8:00 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. Once an enrollment appointment time opens registration is available from that point on for the student.

Students are encouraged to build their Enrollment Shopping Carts in advance of their enrollment time. Students should also "validate" classes in their Catalyst Enrollment Shopping Cart for prerequisites and other possible errors.
