The Registrar's Office assigns first-year schedules to students. Beginning with the third semester, students select courses in accordance with the guidelines for their specific academic programs. Details of graduation requirements for each program are outlined in the Student Handbook.
The Registrar's office designates the registration period for each semester and provides students with procedures and deadlines for course selections.
