Registration for Fall 2020

Own Your Enrollment

You can add, drop, swap any course until the end of the add/drop period (one week after the term begins) in MyBenU.  

Before You Enroll

  •  Math Placement is required for every science and math course as well as some College of Business courses.  If you have not taken a math placement test and do not have a transferable math course that fulfills the prerequisite for the course you wish to take, take a math placement test first.  

Resources for Math Placement (click links below):

Register and Find Advice on Math Test Preparation.

Learn about the Format of the Math Placement and Proficiency Tests.

  • You may not earn credit for a course you already passed.  Note that courses were renumbered in 2019.  Ex. Do not enroll in THEO 1101 if you already passed THEO 101.
  • You may not earn credit for a course you already passed at another college.  Ex. Do not enroll in WRIT 1101 if you already passed an entry level composition course at another school.

In addition to serving as an academic resource and a conduit of academic information for students and faculty, the registrar maintains academic records, the university catalog, integrity of transcript data, verifies enrollment, schedules courses and classrooms in preparation for registration and provides assistance during registration. The registrar also provides insight on academic policy proposal and implementation, institutional history, oversees compliance to academic and privacy policies, evaluates and posts transfer credit, creates documents to support advising, processes transcript requests, updates student information and performs degree audits and conferral.
