Registration Changes

Course registration may be changed during the first three weeks of each quarter. A change of registration is any course "drop," any course "add," or any substitution of one course for another. No changes in registration are permitted after Friday of third week without a petition to a dean in the Office of the Dean of Students. For details, visit

Registration for Professional School Courses

If certain requirements are met, advanced undergraduates may register for up to six courses in the following professional schools at the University of Chicago: the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, the Law School, the School of Social Service Administration, or the Irving B. Harris Graduate School of Public Policy Studies. With the exception of Chicago Booth courses, interested students must petition to the Office of the Dean of Students in the College for approval to register for a professional school course. This petition must be submitted in the quarter prior to the quarter of planned registration. Students interested in Chicago Booth courses must follow the guidelines for registration at For more information about requirements and registration procedures, students should consult their College advisers.

NOTE: Professional school courses generally do not substitute for courses in the major; and no more than four can count toward the forty-two courses (4200 units) required in an undergraduate degree program.


The privilege of registration (as well as the use of University services and facilities) will be denied students who have been placed on restriction. Restriction may result from a student's failure to fulfill financial obligations to the University or to comply with University rules and regulations. Whenever possible, students are warned of an impending restriction and are notified when one has been imposed. Students must clear the restriction with the administrative or academic office which imposed it before they can register for subsequent quarters.
