Follow the recommendations below to prepare for course registration and maximize your chances of building your desired course schedule. Course registration for new students occurs during your orientation program. Current students register in late March and late October for subsequent semesters.

Meet with your academic advisor. Plan courses for your future semesters and discuss any questions or concerns you have regarding academic policies and procedures, major requirements, and graduation. Make the most of your academic advising appointment by utilizing the Pegasus Path planner beforehand. Your academic advisor will assist you with staying on track with your major.

Be aware of important dates & deadlines. Check the UCF Academic Calendar for important dates and deadlines including when classes begin, the Drop/Swap and Add deadlines, the fee payment deadline, the withdrawal deadline, the grade forgiveness deadline, enrollment appointment time availability, and more.

Know your enrollment appointment time. Your “enrollment appointment” is the date and time you may begin to enroll in courses for the subsequent semester(s). Enrollment is possible from the beginning of the enrollment appointment until the Add Deadline of the term. You can find your enrollment date and time by logging in to myUCF and navigating to your Student Self Service area.  You will see an “Enrollment Appointment” box on the right side of your screen.

Resolve holds.  Holds may be placed on your record for various reasons and may restrict any or all of the following: course registration, release of grades, release of transcripts, and release of diploma. Resolve holds on your account to prevent any delays with course registration.

Check course prerequisites.  When registering for courses, be aware of prerequisite requirements (e.g. a prerequisite course, placement test, entrance exam, declared major). Failure to meet prerequisites will prevent enrollment. If a prerequisite course is dropped, withdrawn, or you fail to meet a minimum grade requirement, you may be dropped from future courses that require that course as a prerequisite. You can check course prerequisites by searching for the course in the UCF Undergraduate Catalog.

Request overrides. If you receive registration errors (such as the system not recognizing a prerequisite already completed), you may be able to request an override from the department or college advising office offering the course. Requirements and procedures for overrides vary by department and college.

Plan for multi-term registration. Multiple Term Registration allows all undergraduate students to register for Summer and Fall terms at the same time. Students who, as of February each year, have declared a major and have a UCF GPA of 3.5 or higher (transfer courses are not included), will have the opportunity to register for the Spring term at the same time as the Summer and Fall terms.

Use mySchedule Builder. Create a class schedule that works around your other obligations with the mySchedule Builder tool.  You can create several class schedule scenarios and import your favorite schedule directly to your shopping cart in myUCF. The mySchedule Builder may be found in your Student Self Service Center. Learn more about mySchedule Builder with our training videos, guides, and FAQs.
