Registration Appointments

Your registration appointments will be available on SUOnline one month before registration begins. 

Fall and Spring Semester Registration Appointments

Part-time Students
Students in the part-time program may register for evening classes during their appointment time. All courses beginning at 4 p.m. or later will be open to part-time students during this appointment with the following exceptions:

  1. Clinics included in the clinic course lottery. Part-time students may sign-up for the clinic course lottery but are not given preference for evening clinics over full-time students.
  2. Courses in the 4 p.m. timeslot that are not offered earlier in the day. A limited number of seats in these courses will be made available to part-time students during part-time student registration.

Part-time students may not register for daytime classes (those starting before 4 p.m.) until open registration. If a course will not be offered during the evening and is essential to a student's program they may petition the Registrar for early registration for that course.

Part-time students who enroll primarily in daytime classes may choose to participate in full-time registration instead of part-time registration. They must notify the Registrar at least one week before registration appointments begin. No student will be allowed to register during both part-time and full-time registration.

Full-time Students, Stage One
During Stage One of full-time registration students who will begin their 2L year in the fall may register for a maximum of 8 credits. Full-time students beginning their 3L or 4L year in fall may register for a maximum of 12 credits. The limits on credits are meant to give all full-time students a chance to register for preferred courses.

Full-time students may register for any course with open seats during this registration time (including evening courses). Students may add themselves to the waitlist for full courses during this time (waitlisted courses do not count toward the 8 or 12 credit limit). Clinic credits (added during the clinic lottery) do count towards the 8 or 12 credit limit.

At the end of their Stage One appointment students are locked out of SUOnline until the start of their Stage Two appointment.

Full-time Students, Stage Two
During Stage Two of full-time registration students may register for up to 16 credits. Full-time students may register for any course with open seats during this registration time (including evening courses). Students may add themselves to the waitlist for full courses during this time (waitlisted courses do not count toward the 16 credit limit).

Once their Stage Two appointment begins Full-time students may continue to make registration changes on SUOnline until the Friday of the first week of classes.

Summer Registration Appointments

All students will receive one registration appointment for summer. Full-time students may register for up to 8 credits and Part-time students up to 6 credits during their registration appointments.

Appointment Order

Fall and spring registration appointments are assigned by class year. Full-time class years are further broken down into four registration groups (A, B, C, D). You will be randomly assigned a registration cohort of A, B, C, or D during the registration period for your fall 2L semester. This will remain your cohort until you graduate. We rotate through the registration cohorts each fall and spring registration period. The order for Fall 2014 registration through Spring 2016 registration is as follows:

Fall 2015 Registration: B, A, D, C
Spring 2016 Registration: D, C, B, A
Fall 2016 Registration: A, B, C, D
Spring 2017 Registration: C, D, A, B

Summer appointments are assigned by program and then class year. Part-time students register first for the summer semester. Groups are not used in assigning summer appointments.

Appointment Time Conflicts

If you do not have computer access during your registration appointment time, please contact the Office of the Registrar at 206-398-4150 or lawreg@seattleu.edu. We will make arrangements to register you for classes during your appointment time. We will not reassign your appointment to an earlier time due to a conflict.
