You should be aware of specific guidelines before registering for your Jan Term courses.

Registration Guidelines

  1. With the exception of independent study projects, all January Term registration will be via GaelXpress.
  2. Students are not required to meet with their faculty advisor in order to register for January Term.
  3. Students will register for all on-campus courses by academic class level on Monday, October 7th through Thursday, October 10th. Class level is determined by the number of completed credits at the time of registration. (NOTE: "At the time of registration" does not mean "at the end of this semester" or "after my transfer credits are added in.")

Seniors (27+ credits completed)

Monday, October 7

Juniors (18-26.99 credits completed)

Tuesday, October 8

Sophomores (9-17.99 credits completed)

Wednesday, October 9

Freshmen (below 9 credits completed)

Thursday, October 10

  1. On each of the above dates, registration will be open according to the first letter of your last name. You may check the Registrar's Office web page at for additional information. If you have any questions, please contact the Registrar's Office at (925) 631-4214.
  2. If you are registering for an on-campus class that requires the instructor's signature, or if an instructor's signature is needed to exempt you from one of the prerequisites for the course, you must bring a signed "Instructor's Permission Form" to the Registrar's Office prior to your registration day so that you may register online for the course. Alternatively, as in the case of most travel courses, the instructor may choose to present the Registrar with a list of those students who have been granted a signature.
  3. The last day for students to submit a completed proposal for independent study is Thursday, October 11th. Such students should register for an on-campus class in case their proposal is not approved.
  4. Visiting students should contact the Registrar's Office for information about registering for January Term courses.
  5. Any changes made to your Jan Term schedule after January 7th may have a late course adjustment fee imposed.
  6. Registration for a January Term course only guarantees students a place in the first class of the January Term session. Students who fail to attend the first class will be dropped from the class list unless they have notified the instructor or the Registrar in advance. Please call the Registrar at (925) 631-4214.
  7. The last day to drop a January Term non-travel course without penalty is January 7th, 2014.
