+ Changes to an existing class schedule may result in additional tuition/fees; payment must be made by 5 p.m. in GSC Suite 2801 (Student Business Services) or by 5 p.m. online the day the changes are made to avoid a late fee or cancellation of class schedule. For more information regarding tuition and fees please visit http://sbs.tamu.edu/ or call 979-845-8127.

Registration schedule is subject to change.

Students are limited in the number of online registration transactions each semester in order to prevent excessive taxing of our system hardware by users running unsolicited programs to search for available course seats. The majority of students are able to register for classes within this limit.

Users are prohibited from using a "bot," a "script," or other third-party programs to register for classes. Doing so will likely result in exceeding the maximum number of allowed online registration transactions and the loss of registration privileges in Howdy for the term. Students exceeding their limit of online registration transactions will have to conduct any future registration activity for the semester with academic advising staff during open registration.
