Once your account is created, you will be registered automatically for the first semester of your program by the Registrar's Office. In subsequent semesters it is your responsibility to register for coursework via Self-Service as outlined by your program. It is also the student's responsibility to review the program evaluation in Self-Service and schedule a time to speak with a program faculty member or the program chair to discuss the upcoming semester course offerings and recommendations for scheduling if there are any concerns. Failure to self-register via Self-Service will result in a student not being registered. Please note: Students in the Postbaccalaureate PharmD and MRI Certificate programs will be registered for courses every semester since these programs require that the curriculums are followed precisely as outlined.
