Early Registration

IMPORTANT COVID-19 UPDATE: In order to comply with federal, state, and medical personnel recommendations and restrictions on group gatherings, the Early Registration events on campus have been cancelled. Instead, we will be offering a remote registration experience to our deposited students. Information will be sent directly to students with additional information on how this process will work. Thank you for patience as we try to ensure the health and safety of everyone in our community!




All new incoming students within a 4-5 hours radius of campus are required to select one of the below dates to come to campus and register for classes. Only accepted and deposited students are eligible to attend. Early Registration is when students will:

  • Obtain Student ID
  • Obtain Parking Pass
  • Register for Classes
  • Begin the Housing Request process
  • Meet with Financial Aid to finalize awards


  • Saturday, April 18, 2020
  • Wednesday, June 24, 2020
  • Thursday, June 25, 2020

Register now to ensure you have the best opportunity possible to secure your desired class schedule, times, and housing placement. 

Students outside of the required attendance radius or who are accepted after the last Early Registration event will have an opportunity to register remotely and/or register on campus Friday, August 7. More information will be forward to you directly when those processes open this summer.



All students must complete the enrollment checklist prior to arrival on campus. Students cannot receive a class schedule if the checklist is incomplete. Click here to use your CRIS login information to view your checklist (This information is sent to you shortly after depositing.
