Registration week for the Spring 2021 term will be November 6 - 13. You can begin registering at your assigned time and continue to make changes to your schedule until 11:59 p.m. on
Here are some steps to that students should take to prepare for registration:
During Registration Week and Open Registration, students may wait-list up to two closed courses. (The wait-list is not available during Freshmen Registration nor during the Add Period.) To add yourself to a wait-list you must check the 'wait-list ok' box as you are adding the course to your shopping cart. If you find a class has closed after you added it to your shopping cart, re-select the course from your cart and check the wait-list ok box. A course that is being wait-listed will have an enrollment status of 'waiting.' The list view of your schedule will show the position number on the wait-list.
Students can use the Manage My Wait-list feature to automatically be dropped from a registered class if space becomes available in the wait-listed class. To set up your preference, choose the "Manage My Wait-list" tab in your Student Center and follow the instructions on the page. Please note that setting a preference for the wait-listed course does not guarantee that you will get a spot in the class. If you do not take steps to manage your wait-list, you could be skipped and the available spot will be given to the next student. You should use the Manage My Wait-list feature if:
Once wait-listed, be alert for email messages sent to wait-listed students.
In Search for Classes, there is a Course Attribute field that allows you to search for Core classes, activity classes, new courses, courses within Interdisciplinary Programs and study-abroad classes (for Puget Sound programs such as Pac-Rim). To search for all classes satisfying a specific Core category, choose Core in the Course Attribute field and the specific category (e.g., Connections) in the Course Attribute Value field. To search for courses that are included in an Interdisciplinary Program, select Interdisciplinary Program in the Course Attribute field and the specific program (e.g. African American Studies) in the Course Attribute Value field.
Please note that the credit/no credit temporary policy that was offered in the spring 2020 term will be applied to the summer and fall 2020 terms. For the temporary policy any student may elect to change any Fall 2020 course that normally requires a letter grade (A-F) to Credit/No Credit. Courses currently approved for Pass/Fail grading would not be eligible. Classes taken with the Credit/No Credit option will fulfill major, minor, and core requirements this semester even though that is not normally allowed in the Credit/No Credit policy. Additionally, classes taken on a Credit/No Credit basis during the Spring, Summer and Fall 2020 terms will not count toward the maximum limit of 4 Credit/No Credit units.
The standard policy is that Juniors and seniors may select the credit/no credit
To register Credit/No Credit for a graded course, you must take the following steps:
To your change advisor or change/declare a major or minor, you must complete the Change of Major, Minor, and Advisor Form and submit it to the Office of Academic Advising in Howarth 114. See more information on declaring a major/minor or selecting an advisor.
A "What if Report" is a tool you can use to see how the classes you have already completed will full the requirements for any particular major. Click here to view the tutorial created to help you run a "What if Report."
If a course requires consent you can contact the instructor. If you do not meet the prerequisites for a course you can follow the same procedure. The instructor will need your UPSID number. The instructor will then enter your UPSID number on the permission page for the course, which will allow you to add the course at the time of your registration. Remember to add the course to your schedule. The instructor is not adding you to the course, but giving you permission. If a class is closed at the time of your registration you will be placed on the wait-list. The instructor consent does not override a closed class during registration week and open registration.
