New Student Registration Information for Summer 2021 & Fall 2021

Registration Information for Newly Admitted Summer or Fall Undergraduates

All newly admitted students will register for classes at their New Student Conference.  Check New Student Conference for more information.

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



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.
