Below are additional tips and factors to consider as you prepare for registration. If you have questions about registering for classes, you should schedule an appointment with your academic advisor.
Have You Satisfied the Meningitis Education Requirement?
New York State Public Health law requires students to be educated about meningococcal meningitis disease and the available vaccine for that disease. UB is required to verify that all students carrying 6 or more credit hours have participated in meningitis education. Students over the age of 18 should log into HUB to complete the Meningitis Information Response Form, or you will be blocked from registering for classes. For UB students under 18 years of age, a parent/guardian must complete the Meningitis Information Response Form.
Avoid Late Fees
- Continuing students must register for the upcoming fall or spring semester by the stated deadline date, or they will be assessed a late registration fee.
- New or re-entering students must register for the upcoming fall or spring semester by the stated deadline date, or they will be assessed a late registration fee.
Avoid Class Time Conflicts
Course instructors may refuse your entrance to the classroom after the start of the class hour. To avoid time conflicts:
- If you need to schedule classes on the North and South campuses, be sure to allow one hour between classes for travel time.
- If you need to schedule classes on the North Campus Spine and Ellicott, leave at least 30 minutes for travel time.
Repeating an Undergraduate Course?
UB has an Undergraduate Repeat Policy, effective for courses taken summer 2011 and later.
If any of the courses you plan to take are repeat courses previously taken at UB or elsewhere, it is important for your financial aid to register for 12 credit hours plus the repeated course to be considered full-time. Academic units may designate a course as a controlled enrollment (or impacted) course. A controlled enrollment course is one whose enrollment is limited by available student positions for lectures or associated sections, laboratories, other specialized facilities, internships, etc. For such courses, the academic unit offering the course may limit or prohibit repeat enrollment in the fall and/or spring semester. View information on UB’s repeat policy from the online undergraduate catalog.
View/Print Your Schedule
Whenever you make changes to your schedule, you should verify the changes have been processed. You may view and print your schedule from your computer by accessing your HUB Student Center via MyUB (UBITName required).
Departments may force register students into department courses during the scheduled Force Registration period (from the start of registration windows/enrollment appointments through the end of the second week of classes). If you need to be forced into a class, you should go directly to the department offering the course for information on how force registration requests are handled.
This process is designed to accommodate exceptional registration circumstances for the student who needs to get in or out of a course but cannot do so on his/her own due to constraints or extenuating circumstances (e.g. not in a major). See your academic department for assistance.
When a department has designated a class to allow Wait List, the student has the option during registration to Wait List the class if the class is full. Students who select this option are given a position on the Wait List; if a seat opens in the class, eligible students are moved from the wait list in the Wait List order. Learn more by reading the wait list overview.
