Don’t Delay!

Some classes fill up quickly. Registering early will allow us to better respond to high demand and add new sections when possible.

To register for classes, visit SharkLink. If you have questions regarding your registration, contact your academic advisor. 

If you have not yet registered for the Winter 2018 semester, you are encouraged to do so as soon as possible. 

Should a hold on your account prevent you from registering, now is the time to take the appropriate actions to have the hold resolved. All balances due must be paid prior to your program’s registration deadline in order to register. Registrations after your program’s drop/add or registration deadline will not be accepted. If you have applied for financial aid, you will not receive your financial aid funds until you are registered for degree-applicable classes.
