Undergraduate Degree Students

Detailed Registration Instructions:

  1. Meet with your adviser and select courses. In general, Freshmen and Sophomores may not register for 700-level courses. Any questions about specific courses should be directed to your advisor. No graduate credit will be given for 600 or 700-level courses in which Freshmen and Sophomores are enrolled. Undergraduates may register for graduate-level courses only with permission of the Graduate School. It is your responsibility to meet all prerequisites or other requirements for classes. If you do not meet prerequisites, or if you attempt to register for courses not approved by your adviser, those courses may be removed from your schedule.
  2. Enter your course selections on your Registration Worksheet and have your adviser sign it. List your courses in priority order, with single section courses listed first. Select alternate sections and/or alternate courses in advance to save time while you complete the registration process.
  3. Get your RAC (Registration Access Code) and your registration time from your adviser. Your RAC allows you to register during your appointed time and cannot be changed. Undergraduates will be issued a new RAC every semester. If you lose your RAC and have used it at least once, go to Registration menu on Webcat and select "View Your RAC".
  4. Sign up for any “Department Approval Required” courses in the department office (you must register for these courses via blackboard.unh.edu after signing up in the department office). Obtain permission slips for any “Permission Required” courses from the instructor of the course; then go to the department office before you register for the course on blackboard.unh.edu.
