Fall Course Registration
Please note that registration for fall graduate courses will begin in August. Students who have been term-activated for the fall semester will be able to register for courses at that time. Incoming students who are not term activated or cannot be term activated before physically arriving on campus (e.g. international students required to present a valid study permit) will be able to register for courses upon activation in September. Please note that most graduate courses do not fill before September.
