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

    [MPA/MUP Students - See Note about PER below.]
  3. View your Enrollment Appointment under "Enrollment Dates" on the main landing page of your Albert Student Center.
  4. Review specialization requirements, as well as course and Capstone requirements, 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 Student Training pages to refresh your memory about using Albert.
  4. Check the Albert Course Search for the most up-to-date details on meeting dates, times, and classrooms. [Albert is subject to change so check for updates regularly!]
  5. Remember that you need to use the unique four- or five-digit Albert Class Number to register for a specific course section (not the digits of the course catalog number, e.g. not the "1011" of  "CORE-GP 1011").
