It's time to start preparing for next semester! If you haven't registered for classes already, be sure to do so ASAP! Classes are filling up quickly so register for your Spring 2016 classes before the class you want becomes full! It is highly recommended that you get your Math and English courses out of the way so you can take the DMED classes you need.


For students who register during Nov. 2-Dec.11, 2015, the PAYMENT DEADLINE is 3:30pm on Friday, Dec. 11, 2015. Students are responsible for payment of tuition and fees incurred because of registration. The University reserves the right to cancel your registration.

If you register after Dec. 11, 2015 you are responsible to make a payment or officially withdraw by the appropriate deadlines. Failure to do this could result in a FINANCIAL OBLIGATION HOLD.
