    Students registering through Open University no longer need instructor and department approval to add a class. However, if prerequisites are required and/or the class is full, you will need to obtain approval. Please view the options underneath How to Register on the left-side menu, and choose the appropriate registration method for your course.

    In addition, students who enrolled either in Fall 2018 or Winter 2019 can use self-service registration. Please click on the Self-Service Registration left-side menu item for step-by-step instructions.  


    The Open University course fee is $315 per unit. There is also a $5 mandatory ID fee each term.

    SPRING 2019: Registration begins Tuesday, January 22, 2019 (the first day of classes for this semester). The last day to enroll is Monday, February 18, 2019.

    Students enrolling through Open University will receive academic credit. Students may apply up to 24 units of this credit toward an undergraduate degree. At the option of the appropriate college and department, up to 9 units of academic credit may be applied toward a graduate degree.
