  • CRN # - 47115 for CS&E | 47114 for CLS

Additional Information:

  • To override a time conflict issue, fill out Form 23 and continue the registration as instructed above. 
  • After Jan. 17, 2017, Form 23 is required for all course registrations. Contact your advisor and course instructor for the signature, send registration request to Brittany, and take completed original Form 23 to the Office of Registrar.
