Registration Time

Approximately two weeks before registration begins, you will be assigned a registration time and notified via your SU e-mail account.


Only the department can verify and manually override this information. Please contact them directly.

Course Overload

Students who have a sophomore standing or above with a minimum of 3.50 CUM GPA, may take up to 20 credits per quarter. Permission to take more than 20 credits is granted by the Associate Dean or Undergraduate Director using the Registration Change - Petition to the Dean (e-form).

Core Registration

On the first day of the quarter and during pre-registration, the Core Office runs extended office hours to assist students with getting into closed Core classes and finding appropriate alternatives. They are located in ADMN 120. At all other times, visit the advising center in the college of your major where staff can assist you with UCOR course planning and registration.
