Week of May 5,2003

Fall Registration

The preliminary schedule for the Fall 2003 semester will be published and available for download by the end of the day Monday, May 5, 2003 at You can pick up a hard-copy of the preliminary schedule on the table outside the Spakateria on Tuesday.

Registration for the Fall 2003 semester will take place between Thursday, May 8 and Saturday, May 10.

As has been the procedure in the past, you may register at any time during this period. The registration system will close at 11:59 p.m. on Saturday. We strongly recommend that you register during normal business hours so that there are staff available to assist you with any problems. After the end of the initial 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 with your registration priority group.

Registering for a course does not mean you are enrolled in it. To learn what classes you have been admitted to, you must check the registration web site on Monday, May 12, beginning at 12:01 a.m. At that time, you may add, drop, or make adjustments to your class schedule in "real time" on a first-come, first-served basis.

We understand that this is an extremely busy time and appreciate your understanding and patience.
