About Our Division
Business and Social Sciences Summer 2020 Update
As we head into the first week of summer classes, we know our courses are at maximum capacity and wait lists are full. While many students are seeking to add, we will not be able to accommodate additional students by adding new classes.
The Dean cannot request that students be added to an instructor's class, so please understand written requests to the Dean cannot be acted upon.
Registration for fall classes begins July 15 for continuing students and July 16 for new students who have completed steps for priority enrollment for fall.
We expect demand to be strong again, so we encourage students to apply early, and utilize the priority registration process to get the classes they need as quickly as possible.
For more information on registration for fall, go to our Apply and Register page.
