Registration begins November 1

Spring 2017 registration begins at 8 a.m. on Tuesday, November 1. Be sure that you do not have any holds (e.g., advising, financial, immunizations) on your account that would prevent you from registering for classes.
Freshmen, if you are currently enrolled in HONR200, a seat has been reserved for you in HONR250 at the same meeting time for the spring semester. Likewise if you are enrolled in HONR250, a seat has been reserved for you in HONR200 at the same class time. Only students who MUST take a required course for their major resulting in a time conflict with their assigned section will be granted permission to enroll in a different section. If you anticipate a conflict, contact your Honors advisor.
If you have not made an appointment with your Honors advisor, don’t delay; Honors advising is required of all freshmen. Failure to meet with your Honors advisor will prevent you from registering for classes on November 1. Additionally, your major department may also require advising, so make sure that you are aware of your responsibilities.
Seniors, if you need to take an Honors core course (POLI365, PHYS215, MATH230, PHIL), we suggest you register as early as possible on November 1.

Attention Rising Seniors

If you’re planning to graduate in December 2016, your dossier is due August 1.  In previous years, graduating seniors have been required to attend a dossier workshop before submitting the dossier.  Effective this semester, however, you are able to watch a presentation in the dossier Black Board organization instead.  You must then complete the accompanying quiz with a score of at least 80% before submitting the dossier.
