Priority registration allows a student to register for classes on the first day of the registration period each semester. This provides the opportunity to arrange a schedule (to the greatest extent possible) that is suitable based on a student’s disability-related needs. Priority registration does not override any University or departmental policies such as the need to meet with an academic advisor, removal of any holds (e.g., Bursar), permission number requirements for specific courses, etc. In addition, priority registration does not guarantee the provision of classes at specific times. Students who may qualify for priority registration include:
- Students with mobility disabilities or those who work with personal assistants;
- Students following a strict medication or treatment regimen;
- Students who use American Sign Language interpreters or captioning services;
- Students approved for alternate media for printed materials.
