Early Registration for New MS Students

Incoming MS students can register for Fall 2017 classes starting Wednesday August 2nd through August 11th, 2017, if you have completed your MMR paperwork. If you are unable to register during this time, or wish to make adjustments, you will have an opportunity to register when you arrive on campus for orientation.  The last day to make adjustments is September 15, 2017.

You must read the following instructions very carefully. Failure to read instructions may result in cancelled registrations.

2. Registration restrictions

During this early registration period, you are only allowed to register for:

  • IEOR courses (Industrial Engineering and Operations Research courses) – e.g. IEOR E4004
  • IEOR courses in conjunction with another department – e.g. CSOR W4231, IEME E4310

Students who fail to adhere to the course restriction policy by registering for courses other than those listed above will have their registration voided.  We may have to drop all of the courses to which you register, including your IEOR courses. You will then be limited to the availability of courses in late August when registration reopens.
