Students normally take five three- or four-credit courses each semester plus any related laboratories. Undergraduate courses are scheduled from 8:00 a.m. until 9:30 p.m. so your courses may be spread throughout the day.

Course Registration for Fall of 2020
Class registration will be managed by the Academic Advising and Support Center over the summer. AASC will pre-register most students for their fall courses, including one of their top Messina preferences, any introductory major courses, and at least one humanities core requirement. Students will have the opportunity to meet virtually with an advisor in July to review their schedules and ask any questions related to course registration and/or intended majors or minors. Students will have the opportunity to drop/add courses online, beginning in July and continuing through the first week of classes in the fall.
