Registration Dates & Add/Drop Guidelines

Course registration takes place on AARC, and begins at different times for students in different programs. Registration start times and add/drop deadlines can be found below.

Ensure that you are ready to register on time by checking to see that your Registration Start & End Time has been assigned on AARC before course registration opens, and ensure that you have no Financial Holds on your account by checking with Student Financial Services. You should also check that your Emergency Contact Information on AARC is up to date and that you have signed the Financial Agreement form for the term on AARC.

Once course sections are listed on AARC, you can search for courses and add them to your Preferred Sections List even before your Registration Start Time. After your Registration Start Time has passed, you can register for the courses from your Preferred Sections List.

Undergraduate Registration Guidelines

Course registration for undergraduate courses takes place on AARC, accessible through Simmons Connection. In their first term, students must work with the Academic Advising Office to register for courses. After their first semester, every student is assigned an individual registration start time for each semester based on program location and number of credits earned. Registration continues through the start of classes. You can find your registration time by clicking "My Registration Start & End Time" in the student menu on AARC.
