Registration for Winter Intersession, or mini-mester, will follow the same Priority Registration Dates for the Spring 2017 semester.

Priority Registration allows students who have completed a specified number of credit hours to register before students who have completed fewer credit hours. Pre-Registration will be controlled by date and is based on total credits already earned. These hours do not include the current semester. Please see the chart below detailing the number of credits that must be earned in order to register on the specified date.

The registration system will assign students to specific dates based upon total credits earned. You will not be allowed to register before the date assigned by the system. Once your assigned date arrives, you will be able to pre-register and the system will continue to remain open to you from that point forward. You will then be able to make schedules changes until registration for the semester completely ends.
