Informational email, Programs of study (you will receive a separate email for each of your majors/minors), and registration planner have been sent out to all students via email. Please read the entire informational email! There is a lot of information in it that you may find helpful.

Spring 2024 registration will take place online during the common time. We will also have in-person assistance available in room 225 during registration. Instructions and the link for registration will be emailed the week before registration.

REGISTRATION FOR Spring 2024:

Seniors – Monday, November 6th
Juniors – Tuesday, November 7th

First-Year – Thursday, November 9th

Your registration planner has your assigned registration day & time. You will not be able to log into the registration system before your assigned day & time. The system won’t let you in before your assigned day/time.

If you are not able to attend your registration day/time (for any reason) you may register during any of the other registration days & times AFTER your assigned day/time. If you are not able to attend any of the registration sessions, you can bring your signed registration planner to the Registrar’s office beginning November 13th. Online registration will only be available during registration week (November 6th – 9th) during the common time (it closes between registration sessions). After the registration week, you will need to come to the Registrar’s office to register.

Be assured that we will work with you to get you into your major classes. MIAD guarantees seats in your major classes but cannot guarantee specific sections or topics. Please be flexible and willing to move things around. If you are not able to get into a full schedule during registration, Don’t Panic! Megan and Jean will work with you to ensure that you get into the classes you need to progress towards graduation. Registration is just a process and your schedule can change up through the first week of the spring semester!

MIAD cannot guarantee specific days/times or topics. After registration, the Registrar’s office goes through every registration to ensure that prerequisites are met and that students are enrolled in the classes they need to progress towards graduation. As you can imagine, this process takes some time! Please be patient and we will contact students that are not in all of their classes to progress towards graduation.
