Priority Registration

Priority Registration for Spring 2023 begins November 7, 2022. 

In consideration of the health and well-being of the entire FDU community, students will process their registration online, unless other accommodations are being provided by their academic advisor.

Web Registration: Students may register on Self-Service from 8:00 AM to 11:00 PM daily. Information regarding policies, guidelines, and course information are available on Self-Service or on the Office of Enrollment Services Registration page.

Some advisors may choose ‘not to permit’ their students the option to register online.  It is the advisor or Program Director’s responsibility to inform the student of his/her program’s policy.

Graduate students registering on the web are not required to meet with an academic advisor, however, it is strongly recommended. The period of eligibility to register on the web begins on the first day of Priority Registration.

Undergraduate students are required to meet with their academic advisor in order to release the Web Registration Hold. This will provide students access to register online for the Spring semester until January 29, 2023. Thereafter, Add/Drop registration approval requests can be made via email to the student’s academic advisor. The advisor will forward the Add/Drop email request to the Office of Enrollment Services for processing. Certain programs such as EOF, Honors, and QUEST (5-year program), may require an additional advisor approval. During Priority Registration students must register on the days designated based on the number of credits they have completed up to, but not including the current term.
