Summer and Fall 2021 Registration

Registration for current students for summer and fall 2021 will begin on Monday, March 29, 2021. Most students can use Self-Service Banner (SSB) to register for classes online. Self-Service Banner is accessed through DORI, the University’s portal. Students must have a Multipass account to log on to DORI and access the Banner system. 

The courses listed in the Schedule of Classes represent the anticipated or scheduled course offerings at the time of publication. Cancellations and changes to proposed offerings [and/or the mode of delivery] are infrequent and avoided when possible. However, the University reserves the right to cancel classes due to insufficient enrollment, and to make class schedule and mode of delivery changes to maintain the health and safety of the campus, or any other valid reason.

First-semester freshmen will be registered by their academic advisors. All other degree-seeking students receive time tickets to register for classes, and most time tickets are staggered based on a student's class year or level. Time tickets are assigned two weeks prior to the start of registration and contain your registration start and end dates. To check your time ticket in Self-Service Banner, select Registration and Planning from the DORI Self-Service channel, then Prepare for Registration. Non-degree-seeking students must register with their advisors.

Use the chart below to determine your registration start date. Online registration in Self-Service Banner will begin at 7:00am for each student group according to the table below. Appointments made with advising staff will begin after 8:30am.

Plan Your Courses for Registration with RAPP

RAPP (Review Academic Program Progress) is a tool for students to review their progress through their academic programs and identify the classes they still need to take. Students considering changing their academic program may also use RAPP to review how their coursework to date applies to the new program, and which additional courses must still be fulfilled. Please note that this is not an official degree evaluation and is intended only for the purposes of registration planning.

To use RAPP, log into DORI, navigate to the Self Service channel, select Student Profile > Review Academic Program Progress (RAPP).  Or, log in directly to your STUDENT PROFILE.  

Prepare for Registration

Since online registration will begin before the University opens for the day, it is critical that you confirm your ability to register for classes before your Registration Time Ticket begins. Check in Self-Service Banner for holds that stop registration and to confirm your Registration Time Ticket.   Log on to DORI, navigate to the Self Service channel then follow these steps:

  • Time tickets: Self-Service Channel > Registration and Planning > Prepare for Registration

  • Holds: Self Service Channel > Student Profile.  (Holds on a student's record will also appear at the top of the DORI page after logon.)

Summer 2021

The online registration period for Summer 2021 runs from March 29 through May 10, 2021. Use the chart below to determine your online registration start date and time. If you wish to register after May 10 for a class that begins after May 10, see your advisor. All students should review the Summer 2021 Drop, Withdrawal Deadlines and Refund Policy.
