Office of the Registrar
Continuing undergraduate students may register for Fall semester classes in April, before leaving campus for summer break. This gives continuing students priority enrollment before new and transfer students are registered during the summer months. Continuing students will register for the Spring semester in November, before Christmas break. Refer to the Academic Calendar for specific registration dates for the upcoming semester.
New and returning students must clear holds placed on their student records due to outstanding tuition payments, incomplete financial aid paperwork, incomplete health information, missing transcripts, or parking violations. Students with holds will not be permitted to move into student housing, make changes to class schedules, or register for the next semester. Financial holds will prevent degrees from being evaluated for conferral. Holds may be placed on your account at any time so check for holds periodically.
If a hold remains on your account when you arrive on campus, plan to visit the office responsible for the hold before moving into student housing or attending classes.
Office hours are M-F 8:00am – 4:30pm
Returning students will prepare their schedule using the Master Course Schedule. Make an appointment with your academic advisor to review your schedule. Students will obtain their Alternate PIN from their advisor for online registration. Students will enroll using MyRecords on their priority registration day. Advisors will contact new and transfer students to assist with first-time enrollment.
Schedule changes may be made online through MyRecords or by form during the first two weeks of the semester or during the first week for terms shorter than 15 weeks. Students must have an Alternate (Registration) PIN provided by their advisor to make changes online. If you no longer have your Alternate PIN, please contact your academic advisor. New undergraduate students must contact advising for schedule changes. Refer to the policy on Adding, Dropping, and Withdrawing from classes for details. Most registration forms are located on the Registrar's Office website. Most registration forms are located in MyCUI under Tools, Myregistrar, Registrar Student Forms. The Academic Calendar lists registration deadlines for each term.
Adding Courses – Full-semester courses may only be added during the first two weeks of the semester, and during the first week for shorter terms. Instructor or Dean/Asst. Dean of the school’s approval is required after the first week. Core courses may be added in the first two weeks of the semester with the approval of an academic advisor. Approval must be obtained via registration form in MyCUI.
Dropping or Withdrawing from Courses – Full-semester courses may be dropped without record of enrollment during the first two weeks of the semester and during the first week for shorter terms. From week 3 through week 11, courses may be withdrawn from with a “W” with the approval of the instructor or Dean/Assistant Dean of the school. A “W” in a Core Course requires the approval of the Director of Core. NO COURSES MAY BE WITHDRAWN FROM AFTER WEEK 11.
For tuition penalties/refund information for dropping after the first day of classes, view here.
It is the student’s responsibility to officially drop/withdraw from a course, non-attendance does not constitute a withdrawal. Students should not assume that the university will drop/withdraw them for non-payment of fees or for non-attendance. Visit the Registrar’s office for assistance dropping or withdrawing from courses.
Deadlines – Registration deadlines are strictly enforced. It is CUI policy that students may not petition because of missed deadlines. Please check the academic calendar for add/drop/withdrawal and graduation application deadlines. If you are unable to make changes online, submit the necessary forms to the Registrar’s Office to make schedule changes (Grimm Hall 1st Floor). Unless otherwise stated, all forms must be complete and are due by 4:30pm (PDT) on the deadline
Some courses have a waitlist option. View the Instructions to Add to a Waitlist for a step by step guide.
After you've placed yourself on the waitlist, here are some helpful tips to consider.
There are two types of waitlists:
After week 2 of the semester, if you're still on a waitlist and you have not been added to the class, you will automatically be removed from all of your waitlisted courses for that semester.
If you have any questions, please feel free to send us an email at [email protected]
