Dates to Remember - Spring Semester 2020

Important Semester Dates | Refunds and Drop/Add Dates | Billing Due Dates

Remember to register as early as possible. Your registration may not be entered on the same day you send it in to the UNITE office. "Requests for Graduate Credit for Non-degree Students" may take several days because they are sent over to the Registrar's office. "Non-Degree Undergraduate" enrollment and "Change of College" can take a week, or longer, to be entered because they are sent over to the admissions office. You may also have to work with different offices to clear holds. The closer to the beginning of school, the longer the registration process takes because everyone is busy.

Access to streaming video can take up to 72 hours after student is officially registered. This means late registrations may not have immediate access to streaming video when school starts.

If there is a UNITE hold on your record and you need to register for non-UNITE course(s) for the Spring 2020 semester, please let us know in advance of your registration date so that we may remove the hold.
