Verify that there are no holds on your account

There may be a hold on your account that blocks you from registering for courses. The most common holds are Bursar’s Holds for overdue balances or Advising Holds based on previous academic experience (dismissal, balance forward, etc.). You should take steps to resolve any holds on your account as soon as possible. You can check your holds in the Student Administration System (Instructions).

Register for your classes

Non-degree registration opens at 7 a.m. on the first day of non-degree registration for each semester. (Employees using a tuition waiver must wait until the second day of courses to register.) See the Dates and Fees page for the registration dates for upcoming terms. At that time you will be able to log in to the Student Administration System and add courses to your schedule. Tutorials for adding, swapping, and dropping courses are available at Student Administration System Help. Additional information pertaining to registration for courses including error messages and obtaining permission numbers can be found on the Registration Help page. Class registration results in automatic generation of a bill.

Make changes to your class schedule

You can enroll in additional classes or swap courses through the open registration period. You can also drop a course if you are enrolled in multiple courses for the semester.

Fall/Spring: You may make changes to your registration through StudentAdmin during the Add/Drop Period. After the Add/Drop Period, all requests to withdraw from a class must be made via email to hartford.registrar@uconn.edu.
