Priority registration is designed to enhance the University’s ability to help students achieve graduation status. The priority registration system allows students who have earned a certain amount of credits to register prior to other students who are further from graduation. Only passing grades and transfer credit are included in this calculation.
Priority registration also accommodates students with special circumstances that impact their ability to access the classes they need to maintain satisfactory progress toward the completion of their degree.
Priority registration is structured as follows:
- Graduate students, NCAA, students with disabilities requiring accommodations approved with the Access Center, honors students, and Veteran students who received VA benefits or Tuition Assistance the previous semester.
- Non-degree-seeking students
- Newly admitted students
