Spring 2006 Schedule and Registration.

The final schedule and Registration Bulletin for the Spring
2006 semester are now available outside the third floor cafeteria.
Online versions are also available on the Student
Portal page (click on the Spring 2006 link), or by clicking
Registration Instructions. Registration will take place
Thursday, November 17 through Tuesday, November 22. You
may register at any time during that period. Registration
will take place through the Online Registration system (linked
to the Student Portal page). After the end of the registration
period, the registration requests will be processed according
to each student's registration priority. In other words, registration
will not be conducted on a first-come, first served basis;
as long as you register during the designated period, you
will have an equal chance of being admitted to a class as
other students within your registration priority group.
Registration for First-Year Students. Although first-year
students have set schedules, you still must register for your
Spring courses using the Online Registration system. Please
be careful to register for the doctrinal classes listed for
your current section, and for the Legal Writing section taught
by your current professor.
