Add a Class

Before You Begin...

The students register for classes via the Student Schedule & Registration link on myUMBC or the Schedule Builder tool. The steps below outline the procedure the student follows to add a class to their schedule using the manual registration process.  The steps begin after logging into myUMBC.  Note that as a Faculty or Staff role at UMBC, you do not have the same link within your Classes & Grades topic on myUMBC.

Note that the student can only register for classes after they have received advising authorization from their advisor and after the registration for the current term is available.
