Priority Registration

During the first week of registration, enrollment in certain courses is reserved for students within a particular major. Priority for these students ends the first Friday of registration at midnight, after which the remaining seats become available to all other students who meet the prerequisites. Course descriptions, located in the UArts Course Catalogue, list priorities and prerequisites for all courses.

Registration Appointment Dates and Times

Appointment times are assigned by class level, determined by the number of credits a student has completed. Courses in progress are not included in this calculation. Students may register online or in person on or after their assigned appointment date and time.

Student Planning - Registration

Beginning with registration for the Spring 2015 semester, all student populations will be using the new Student Planning Module in place of Web Advisor. For detailed assistance, please refer to the PDF User Guide in the Quick Links.

Once you have been advised and have your courses for the upcoming semester planned, you will return to Student Planning on or after your appointment time to register for those courses: 

  1. Log-in to Portal and access Student Planning under the Registration menu
  2. Click on the Plan & Schedule tab
  3. To register for all planned coursework (shown in yellow), click the Register Now button in the top right corner.
  4. To register for only some of your planned courses at a time, use the individual Register buttons located in each course box to the left. 

Waitlisting ** New Feature **

For Liberal Arts courses that reach capacity, wait lists have been added for Summer & Fall 2015 Registration!

For course sections with a Wait List that have reached their capacity, you will find a Waitlist button in place of the Register button. 

If a student already in the section drops their enrollment, the first student on the wait list will be notified via email. 

There is a 24 hour deadline to register for the section or the opening will be forfeited! After the first waitlisted student forfeits their space or clicks the "Drop Waitlist" button, the next will be notified. 

Be sure to check your UArts email regularly to take advantage of this opportunity!

Waitlisting is a pilot program, so please report any issues that occur to the Office of the Registrar.
