Web Registration

Registration Phases

Registration for each quarter is conducted in three phases using Web4U:

Phase I

A period reserved for continuing and returning students. See the Registration Schedule for specific registration day/time. A maximum of 17 credits is allowed during Phase I.

Phase II

A period before the start of classes when students can revise their schedules. If additional credits are needed, students may increase up to 20 credits during Phase II. However, exceeding 18 credits will result in additional tuition charges. In Winter and Spring quarters, new students register the day before classes begin.

Phase III

First five days of the quarter during which students can register or revise their schedule without penalty (see Important Dates and Deadlines). Online registration ends at 5pm at the end of Phase III.
