Answers to Common Questions:

Who do I meet with if my first major is not CompSci?

If you are a CompSci second major or CompSci minor, then you need to meet with your First Major Advisor to be cleared to register.

Who do I meet with if I am doing study abroad?

If you are away/abroad this semester, you are automatically cleared for registration for spring courses. 

If you are planning on being abroad next semester, and you have been approved for a study abroad program, then you do not need to meet. If you have not been approved yet, you should do one of the two above.

How do I add/drop/change my major, minor, concentration or certificate?

Instructions and links for doing so are available on the registrar’s website Note that no changes to academic plans will be processed by the registrar’s office during registration period.

Are there substitutions for courses?

Any substitutions must be approved by the DUS office. A list of common substitutions are on this page, but they are not automatic. Send a request to for approval of a course substitution.
