Students: Get Ahead by Registering Early for Spring Semester

The University of Toledo is encouraging students to register now for spring 2020.

“The earlier students register, the more likely they will be able to take the courses they want at the times that work best in their schedules,” Interim Provost Karen Bjorkman said. “Even if students are still waiting to hear back about a co-op placement or an internship they applied for, they should register for the next semester to be sure they stay on track. It is easier to adjust a plan already in place than to be behind schedule at a later date.”

Registration for spring semester is underway, with registration dates ordered by class rank. Graduate students, priority registration and seniors started last week. Other dates are:

• Wednesday, Nov. 6 — Juniors — (60 to 89 earned hours);

• Tuesday, Nov. 12 — Sophomores — (30 to 59 earned hours) and undergraduates with degrees; and

• Wednesday, Nov. 20 — Freshman (0-29 earned hours).

“Our top priority is student success, and planning ahead is critical for students on a successful path to graduation,” Vice President for Student Affairs Phillip “Flapp” Cockrell said. “We’re launching this campaign to change the culture here for students and all of us who support students. We want students to focus on doing well now, but also to be thinking ahead about what comes next and planning well in advance to meet those goals.”

Academic advisors are available to help students plan their course of study. Students are encouraged to aim for 15 credit hours per semester to graduate on time. Most degree programs require 120 total credit hours or more to graduate.

Regardless of when a student registers for spring semester, tuition is not billed until January. Students can register and view important spring semester dates on the UToledo registration website.

Students who are unsure of who their academic advisor is or who are considering a change of major may contact the Center for Success Coaching at 419.530.1250 for support and assistance.
