The University of Toledo will begin offering multi-term registration this spring, allowing current students to register for a full academic year of courses rather than one semester at a time. With multi-term registration now an option, students will be able to better plan their schedules to ensure progress toward completing their degree.
Multi-term registration will be available during the upcoming registration period, allowing current students to register for both the fall 2022 and spring 2023 semesters. Summer semester is not part of the multi-term registration process. Multi-term registration will be available when priority registration opens on Wednesday, March 16, at 8 a.m.
“We want students to be able to take a longer view of their academic schedules, and we feel this approach will allow them to do that more effectively,” said Dr. Amy Thompson, senior vice provost for academic affairs. “Planning their schedule multiple semesters at a time will allow students to ensure they get into every required class for their major on schedule.”
Faculty will also benefit from the new approach. Through multi-term registration, faculty will have a better idea of class sizes and interest in classes prior to a given semester, allowing them to more accurately shape class offerings to meet student demand.
Multi-term registration will not impact student billing. Each term will continue to have a separate billing schedule published by the University Treasurer’s office; tuition for future semesters will not be due any earlier. In addition, students are encouraged to file their annual Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year by the Feb. 1 priority deadline. The FAFSA is required for students to be awarded loans, federal or state aid and need-based scholarships.
“We’re excited about the possibilities of multi-term registration,” said Thompson. “Anything we can do to make the class-registration process more student-friendly is always going to be a priority.”
