Registration appointments are organized by stage, distributed across several business days for spring and fall registration.
Students are randomly assigned to a stage based on student type (e.g., graduate student) or by the total number of cumulative credits. The cumulative credit total includes both completed and in-progress credits. Audit courses are not counted in the cumulative credits, nor are they counted as credits in progress.
Appointments are not adjusted based upon academic credit awarded after appointments have been assigned.
