Spring 2017 Registration Times

Registration-related activities available through Student Self-Service include:

  • Checking your registration eligibility
  • Adding or dropping classes
  • Updating your address and telephone information
  • Applying to graduate or checking graduation status
  • Obtaining a copy of your class schedule

Time Tickets - will be available to view Monday, October 17th

Degree seeking students registered in either Spring 2016 or Fall 2016 will be assigned a PRIORITY time ticket showing the earliest time you are authorized to register.  If you were last registered prior to Spring 2016 and are approved for re-entry, a priority time ticket will be available the day after the re-entry is successfully processed by your undergraduate college office or the Graduate College Office.  Time ticket assignments are based on the number of hours completed (including current enrolled U of I hours) and special group identification, according to campus policy.  For example, Juniors with 85 hours will have a registration day/time BEFORE Juniors with 65 hours.  Study abroad credit with DFR grade will not be included in the total hours until converted to academic history with actual grades and verified credit hours.  Priority registration times for Spring 2016 will be spread over 3 weeks. 

Undergraduates will be able to register for a Winter 2016-2017 class at the same time as Spring 2017.  Graduate students are not allowed to enroll in Winter classes.

You may register or adjust your schedule any time after your earliest assigned time until the first day of classes without penalty. You are encouraged to register as soon as possible after your time ticket allows.

As You Register

Student Self-Service will control access based upon registration time, class size, academic program, maximum credit limit, and holds.

Some classes are listed in the class schedule as “authorization only.” Contact the office of the department offering the course for approval before registering for one of these classes. If a hold that prevents registration has been placed on your record, it must be removed before you can register. Select 'View Holds' to determine what office to contact to resolve a hold.  Access to Student Self-Service to add or drop classes will be blocked until your registration holds are removed.

For full instructions, refer to our Registration Procedures.

Important Notice: Terms of Use

Student Self-Service is the University system to register for courses. When you do so, you agree to pay tuition and fees to the University according to the payment policies and schedules adopted by the Board of Trustees. If you wish to cancel your registration and thus avoid payment of tuition and fee charges, you must do so by 11:59 p.m. the day prior to the first day of the term.

Unauthorized use of University of Illinois computer systems, data, or resources; unauthorized use of another individual's identification, account, or password; or an attempt to gain unauthorized access is prohibited by university policy and may constitute a violation of Illinois state law. Access to Student Self-Service will be terminated if you are found to be making excessive unsuccessful registration attempts.

Students with Disabilities

Students with disabilities who have not registered for services with the Division of Disability Resources and Education Services (1207 South Oak Street, Champaign, IL 61820) and who wish to request accommodations for any or all of the classes in which they are registering should contact the coordinator for Student Services at 217-333-4603 (V/TTY) or 217-333-1970 (TTD).
