Intent to Enroll
Once accepted into the School of Public Service, students
must submit the Intent to Enroll form. This form will
notify the program and the Office of Graduate Admission that the student
accepts their admission to the school.
This form will also matriculate a student into the system allowing
him/her to register for courses. Newly
admitted students should receive notification about this from the Office
Graduate Admission upon admission to the school via email.
To register for each term students are assigned a specific
day and time for when they are eligible to register for courses. You can check your enrollment date on Campus Connect.
Steps for Successful Registration
The schedule of classes will be available several weeks
prior to when students can begin registering for classes. Before a student's enrollment time, he/she
can look through the list of courses and add classes to their course cart. Once courses are in the course cart, click
the validate button to check for pre-requisites or holds. If you have questions about a hold or error
message received, contact your academic advisor. If a student receives an error message, then
the error must be resolved in order to be able to register. On registration day, students can then choose
some or all of the classes in their course cart and then enroll.
