Fall Registration Starts Tuesday

Fall Registration for current UNI students starts on Tuesday!  Full information about how to register is available on the Registrar's website: http://www.uni.edu/registrar/.  Your registration date and time is listed online in the MyUNIverse Student Center: http://myuniverse.uni.edu  In addition, many students have found it helpful to use the new planner and shopping cart features of the system.  These features allow students to set an entire example academic career instead of a single semester.  In addition, students can add courses from their planner to the shopping cart easily.  

As with any new system, students may need help adjusting to the changes.  Students can go to open labs where registrar staff are available to answer any questions.  Open lab times are posted here: http://www.uni.edu/registrar/fall-2011-registration-open-lab-sessions  Open labs will be located in Gilchrist throughout the registration period and in Maucker on the first day of registration for each classification (April 5, April 7, April 12, and April 18).  There is also help available online: MyUNIverse > Student Center > Help 

As part of the process of preparing for advance registration in the new SIS, the project team recently performed a series of "stress" tests to see how the new system would handle demands placed on it.  The most recent tests show that the new system will handle up to 4,000 concurrent users; the current SIS handles 300.  In addition, registration is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
