REGISTRATION

When can I see classes for the next term?
Class schedules are posted on Friday of week 5 (for example the winter class schedule is posted week 5 of fall term). Class schedules for summer sessions are posted in early March. BONUS TIP! Once the class schedule posts, you may use schedule builder in DuckWeb to begin arranging possible schedules.

When can I register?
Registration is based on credit hours earned and begins Monday of week 8 (for example winter registration begins week 8 of fall term). Summer registration begins in early May. Registration priority information is posted in DuckWeb under "registration" menu, "check registration eligibility" during Week 7. It can also be found at the Office of the Registrar.

What classes should I register for?
Review your degree audit on DuckWeb and make note of areas in red that say “NO.” These are courses you will need to incorporate into your schedule planning. Things to consider include how many credits to take. 12 credits is full-time; however aim to earn 45 credits per year to graduate in four years. Balance your course load to account for your academic strengths and challenges and other time commitments.

Who can help me with my schedule?
Your Advisor! Speak with an advisor early about schedule planning. Weeks 3-5 are the best time to work with an advisor to discuss future schedule plans. Don’t wait until week 6 or later when advising schedules begin to fill up!

Can I add classes after the deadline?
Petitions to register/add classes after the deadline can be obtained through the Office of the Registrar (220 Oregon Hall).

Can I register for more than 21 credits?
Students considering more than 21 credits in a term MUST speak with an advisorAdvisors may give permission for up to 24 credits. Students seeking more than 24 credits (NOT RECOMMENDED) must obtain a petition in the Office of the Registrar (220 Oregon Hall).

DROPPING COURSES

Should I drop a course or courses?
Students are ALWAYS encouraged to speak with an advisor before dropping courses. Advisors can discuss other possible options and also make important referrals.

When can I drop (withdraw from) a course?
Students have until Sunday before week 8 to drop courses via DuckWeb, HOWEVER there are deadlines throughout the term that will dictate how much tuition is owed. Drop deadlines can be viewed by clicking on the CRN for the course in the Class Schedule or by viewing the registrar’s academic dates and deadlines calendar. NOTE! Summer Sessions have different deadlines due to shorter terms. Be sure to click on course CRNS to view individual course deadlines.

How do I drop all my courses (complete withdrawal)?
Students who drop all their courses must use DuckWeb and go to "completely withdraw" in the registration menu. Students have until Sunday before finals week to completely withdraw, HOWEVER there are deadlines throughout the term that will dictate how much tuition is owed on complete withdrawal. Those deadlines can be viewed by clicking on the CRNs for the courses in the class schedule or by viewing the registrar’s academic dates and deadlines calendar. NOTE! Summer Sessions have different deadlines due to shorter terms. Be sure to click on course CRNS to view individual course deadlines.

Most courses for your major are NOT permitted to be taken P/NP but you must confirm that with an advisor.

Deadlines can always be viewed by clicking on the CRN for the course in the class schedule or by viewing the registrar’s academic dates and deadlines calendarNOTE! Summer Sessions have different deadlines due to shorter terms.

What can I do if I missed the drop (withdrawal)/grade option deadline?
