What You Need to Know

  • Autumn Semester registration for short-term classes is now open. Current students can register on CougarWeb. Incoming students, please visit for next steps.
  • Autumn will be Remote: Student instruction and services will remain primarily remote for Autumn semester. Some exceptions will be made for in-person instruction and support when remote options are insufficient. Limited in-person student support services will return this fall, including some Student Central functions and computer lab access. The fall class schedule is being updated to reflect how each class section will be delivered so students can plan and schedule accordingly.

Register for short-term classes early for your best choice of days, times, and locations.
