Early Start Registration

How to Register

View the Early Start Class Schedule and Registration Guide (PDF) - a guide with currently available Early Start classes and step-by-step enrollment instructions. This guide will be updated as new classes are opened for enrollment.

View the Early Start Enrollment Instructions (PDF) - a set of screenshots showing students where to find the Early Start enrollment options in their Student Centers.

JUNE 28th is the payment deadline for students who register between June 11-28. You will be dis-enrolled if your program fees are not paid and will have to re-enroll later. If you qualify for the fee waiver, you do not have to pay program fees.

Registration will freeze on JUNE 29th and resume on JUNE 30th. If you do not have a fee waiver, you must pay fees immediately upon enrolling from June 30 - the first day of class.

Students may continue registering until the first day of instruction for each class or all remaining seats are filled, whichever comes first.
