Your Early Enrollment appointment is the earliest date and time you can register for classes. It is set by the Office of the Registrar and is based on the total number of credits you have completed. You cannot change your early enrollment appointment.

Are the classes you want full? Waitlist! Many students get into their top choice classes from the waitlist.
