Get Ready for Registration

Confirm Your Assigned Online Registration Time

The assigned online registration time that has been set up for you is the earliest date and time you can start registering for summer/fall 2019 courses at You cannot register before this time, but you can register anytime afterwards. However, courses fill up rapidly, so we strongly encourage you to register at your assigned time to maximize your options. 

Online registration times are assigned based on seniority: students closest to the number of completed credits required for their program have the earliest times. They are only assigned from Monday through Friday during business hours; no registration times are assigned on the weekends or holidays.  

  • Your assigned online registration time can be found in your “Registration and Check-In Profile” under the Registration section on If you are having trouble locating your assigned online registration time, contact the Office of the Registrar at 617-747-2240 or

Seek Out Advising

Take advantage of registration advising services by meeting with an academic advisor during advising drop-in hours or a faculty departmental advisor before registering. Students at sixth semester standing or higher are highly encouraged to come in early for advising.
