Priority registration allows students to register for their classes early in the registration period. Priority registration is granted to students with disabilities on a case-by-case basis when there is a disability-related need. All priority registration requests must be reviewed and approved by DSS.

Approval for Priority Registration may be for one or more of the following reasons:

  • Use of Interpreters and/or Transcribers
  • Need for alternative formats of materials
  • Need to ensure appropriate physical access
  • Need to adjust class schedule due to medical issues

Students who are determined to be eligible for Priority Registration must confirm their purpose for using Priority Registration by responding to a short survey every semester, prior to the start of the Registration period. If a student does not confirm this with us by the deadline date, the student will not be allowed to register early.
Students with priority registration should make an appointment to meet with their academic advisors in advance of the first day of registration.

If you have any questions or are unsure about your eligibility, please contact DSS.
