All undergraduate students are required to contact their academic advisor prior to registration. Your advisor will distribute your Alternate PIN that will give you access to the online registration services. You may look up your current advisor assignment on U-Online. To do this, login to U-Online, select Student Services; then Student Records; then General Student Information. Select the desired term and submit. Your advisor is listed in the Primary Advisor field.
Alternate PINs for Advance Registration
All matriculated undergraduate students are required to use an Alternate PIN for Advance Registration. New Alternate PINs are assigned every registration term, so the Alternate PIN you used last term is no longer valid. You will receive your new Alternate PIN from your advisor. Alternate PINs are only required during Advance Registration for Spring (in November) and Fall (in April). They are not required for Registration Adjustments, Open Registration (add/drop), or any part of Summer registration.
Course Selection Worksheet
As you plan your schedule with your advisor, record the CRNs in the Course Selection Worksheet so that you may reference them during your online registration session. Your advisor's signature is not required for online registration, however, you may wish to keep a copy of the worksheet with your advisor's signature as a record of what you discussed during your meeting.
Administratively Pre-Registered Course Sections
In order to assist you with course selection, in some instances you may have been administratively preregistered in certain courses required for your major. This was done in collaboration with your Department Chair and the Dean's Offices. You will need to register for additional courses to maintain full time status of 12 - 18 credits, and it is highly recommended that you make every effort to schedule around these assigned sections. You may be able to make changes to this schedule, but if you change your registration we cannot guarantee you a seat.
An undergraduate student must be registered for at least 12 credits to be classified as full-time. Being enrolled in less than 12 credits will result in part-time student status. This status may affect: housing, financial aid, tuition billing, Veteran's Administration, NCAA, or other athletic eligibilities. It is the student's responsibility to monitor their own enrollment status. Within your undergraduate tuition, you can enroll up to 18 credits. To enroll in over 18 credits, you will need special permissions and will accrue additional fees. Please see the Registrar's Office if you have any questions or view the Additional Credit form.
Courses Not Available for Online Registration
Some courses are not available online because they require additional documentation. Below is the information you need to register.
- Study Abroad/Away
Please go to the Global Education Program for information.
- Directed/Independent Study Course
- Greater Portland Alliance of Colleges and Universities (GPACU)
Students may register for courses by contacting their advisor and then entering their selections through U-Online's Registration Services during their assigned registration days and times. Complete instructions for registering online are found in the Guide to Online Registration. Students who do not register during the pre-registration period will be charged a $75.00 late registration fee.
After the initial registration period, online registration access will be temporarily closed to allow the Dean's Offices to adjust the course offerings schedule and to resolve any outstanding registration or advising issues.
Online registration will open for a Registration Adjustment period when students must finalize their schedule and make any adjustments. Although your schedule will be considered final after this time, it may still be subject to administrative changes due to staffing and scheduling changes in the course offerings.
The Registrar's Office will review all registrations at the end of each semester to make sure that students are still eligible to remain enrolled in courses chosen for the next semester that are restricted by prerequisites, major, or academic standing. You will be administratively dropped from courses for which you are no longer eligible and it will be your responsibility to replace those courses during the Registration Adjustment and Open Registration periods.
Open Registration (Add/Drop)
As always, students may make changes to their schedule during the add/drop period at the beginning of each term.
Withdrawal/Leave of Absence
A student may withdraw from all courses by completing either a Request for Leave of Absence Form or a Student Withdrawal Form. These forms are available at the Student Affairs Offices and the Registrar's Office on both campuses. Note: The effective date of withdrawal is the date the University receives the completed paperwork. All tuition refunds are based on this effective date. Failure to properly withdraw may result in failing grades.
