You will receive an email from the Undergraduate Programs Office with detailed information about registration appointments including links to required paperwork. These appointments generally occur in April and November.
    • Registration Access Codes (RAC) are assigned at random in each class standing. Your class standing is determined by how many earned credits you have.

      • 26-57 earned credits = Sophomore
      • 58-89 earned credits = Junior
      • 90+ earned credits = Senior
    • If a Paul College course is full, a waiting list will be created. Please put your information on the webform. Note that courses are only listed if all sections of a course are closed.
