Registration for Spring 2018 begins on Monday, November 13.

In order to be prepared for the start of registration, please follow these steps:


  1. Check your Albert Student Center for any HOLDS, and resolve them immediately. [See Note about PER below.]
  2. Check your Albert Student Center for your "Enrollment Appointment" under ENROLLMENT DATES.
  3. RSVP for the upcoming Student Services Online Registration Info and Q&A Session for current students.
    Thursday, November 2 at 5:30pm
    Friday, November 3 at 12:30pm
    {via WebEx.  Click "Register" button.  Ignore "Join Event Now" section on the right.}
  4. RSVP for the appropriate Faculty Group Advisement Sessions on Thursday, November 9 at 5:30pm to get advisement from faculty.
  5. Review specialization requirements, as well as course and Capstone prerequisites, on your Program Requirement Checksheet.


  1. Read the instructions for the Weighted Course Lottery.
  2. Read the Course Highlights for information about new courses, new instructors, courses that require an application, intensive courses, and courses on a new meeting pattern.
  3. Review the Registrar's Albert "How To" Video or the Student Help Guides on the Registering on Albert page to refresh your memory for using Albert.
  4. Check Albert for the most up-to-date details on meeting dates, times, and classrooms.
  5. Remember that you need to use the unique four- or five-digit Albert Class Numbers to register for specific courses (not the digits of the course catalog numbers, e.g. not the "1011" of CORE-GP 1011).
  6. Consider non-credit workshops and modules, such as Composing Your Career.
  7. If considering pre-approved university-wide electives, read through the registration procedures and review the timelines for Spring 2018. Non-pre-approved courses must be approved at least a month in advance!


  1. Visit your program advisor's walk-in hours if you have general advisement questions. Visit faculty for academic advisement to help shape your specialization and elective courses toward academic and professional goals.
  2. Review the Tuition/Bursar Payment Schedule and familiarize yourself with the drop/add and refund schedules for Spring 2018.


Note about PER "holds": All MPA-PNP, MPA-Health, and MUP students will see the "WPR-PER" service indicator under HOLDS to show what their PER status is. Any PER indicators will not affect your ability to register. Click here for more information about PER.



  1. If you are currently in Capstone, you will be manually registered for the Spring section of Capstone by November 20.
  2. Review the Capstone prerequisites for your specialization on your Program Requirement Checksheet.
  3. If you are planning on starting Capstone in Fall 2018, be certain to register for the prerequisites that you will need to be eligible!
