Students currently abroad
Students currently abroad or studying off-campus need to contact their advisors for approval of courses they wish to take for the next semester. Advisors will then remove the advising hold, allowing students to register at their assigned time. No special registration considerations are made for students registering while abroad; however, students can contact Registration and Records for assistance with registration problems or concerns about a registration process. Student must initiate email exchanges with faculty/staff regarding any pre-enrollment/pre-registration forms requiring signatures or approval (Overloads, Verification of Need to enroll in Core, Register by Instructor, Directed or Independent Studies, etc). While abroad students that did not complete the preliminary check-in process for the current semester will have a preliminary check-in "HOLD" which will prevent them from registering for classes. Please remember to complete this check-in (if not already done so) BEFORE registration opens.
