Registration for J-Term courses opens on Monday, October 16, 2017 and closes Tuesday, January 2, 2018. Students should register for a J-Term class via LOCUS by selecting J-Term 2018 from the Term selector menu. For detailed information on registration and important J-term dates, please visit the J-Term Registration and Class Schedule.

*January 2, 2018 serves as the late registration period. A $50 late registration fee will be applied.

Please keep in mind that J-Term is not part of the Spring term. Students can only register for a maximum of 3 credit hours for J-Term.


If a course is over-subscribed a waitlist will be created.  To prevent automatic enrollment resulting in late-enrollment fees, waitlists will be active only until December 21.
