Registration Schedule for Continuing Undergraduate

Spring 2022

Continuing undergraduate students (enrolled Fall 2021) & undergraduate students readmitted for Spring 2022 will be provided registration assignments based priority group and classification.

Classification is based on earned hours at the time registration assignments are made. Students with a change in classification after assignments are made can contact registration@tamu.edu to request an updated time assignment (must be before the start of the updated time). Students may not request updated time assignments due to missing their registration time, holds, etc. and will need to wait until open registration to register.

New Spring Undergraduate Admits

Students must be admitted for Spring in order to register for Spring courses.  Contact Office of Admissions for information about Spring admissions.

All newly admitted students must attend their New Student Conference in order to register for classes.
See New Student Conference for more information.



Important:

*Students with zero registered hours during the first four (4) class days of summer terms or the first five (5) class days of fall/spring semester will be assessed a $100 late registration fee when they register.

+ 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. Users should also refrain from excessive requests to add full sections of 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.
