Advance Registration vs Late Registration

Advance Registration

The Advance Registration period begins approximately 1 – 2 months prior to the first day of instruction. Check MySJSU for your enrollment appointment. Enrollment appointments are assigned based on Priority Registration Groups

View the Registration Calendar well before each term starts to view the date your enrollment appointment will be posted on MySJSU. Then, check MySJSU on that date to find out when your enrollment appointment actually starts.

Late Registration

Late Registration period starts the first day of instruction and ends on the add deadline(last day to add). Students can add/drop courses via MySJSU during this period. For specific dates, check Registration calendars. A late fee will apply for all first-time adds. If you have any questions regarding fees, please contact Bursar's office.
