Undergraduate Registration Schedule

All students who are eligible to participate in online registration have been assigned specific windows of time during which registration will be available. U-Online refers to these assigned times as time tickets. Registration will close on all end dates at 11:59 p.m. Dates are subject to change. Please take note of your registration time ticket and plan your advising and registration session accordingly.

Incoming Freshmen

The University of New England Registrar's office pre-registers all new incoming freshmen into courses appropriate to their major. These courses are determined by their academic departments and SAT/ACT scores. Once these students attend orientation, they will meet with their academic advisors. After the advisor meeting students will be able to access the U-Online and make adjustments if needed. The sooner that students attend orientation sessions the sooner they will have access to their schedules on U-Online.

Undergraduate Advising and Course Selections

Academic Advising

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 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 New Alternate Pins are assigned every registration term, so the Alternate PIN you used last term is no longer valid.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. It is recommended that students enter their pin days prior to registration to make sure it is correct.

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 you.

Course Loads

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 eligibility. 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.

Undergraduate Registration Procedures

Advance Registration

You may register for courses by contacting your advisor and then entering your selections through U-Online's Registration Services during your assigned registration days and times. Complete instructions for registering online are found in the Guide to Online Registration.

Registration Adjustments

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 (PDF) or a Student Withdrawal Form (PDF). 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.
