Please do not forget to make sure you register YOURSELF each and every fall, spring and summer semester to ensure your full-time status, especially if you are an international student or US citizen with undergraduate educational loans which are in deferrment due to full-time status in school.

You can always decide exactly which class(es) you want to take at a later time, but by registering for these 36.0 units you will avoid being reported to national or international databases as "withdrawn" since they make these reports before each semester commences. If you have questions or concerns about this topic, make an appointment to meet with a respresentative at the HUB.

The dates when registration opens for each session can be found in the CMU Academic Calendar. You will also receive emails from Enrollment Services about more precise times and dates to register within the ranges stated in the academic calendar. The easiest and fastest way to register is online (On-line Registration (OLR) Hours of Operation: 6:00 am to 10:00 pm EST Monday thru Friday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EST Saturday and Sunday.)
