Attention New and Transfer Students

Incoming New Students: The schedules listed do not reflect the dates you will be registering for classes. Because you haven't started a semester at BGSU, class registration will be one of the steps in your orientation process. You will be sent information on meeting with an Academic and Career Planner and registering for class from the Office of Admissions. It's important you read your BGSU email account and follow the instructions provided to you by your advisors.

Transfer Students: As a transfer student, you are new to BGSU just like all first-year students but you have already earned credits at another institution. Because of this, your registration date can vary. Some transfer students will follow the exact same process listed for new students and others may follow a different path. It's important you read your BGSU email account and follow the instructions provided to you by your advisors. 

Enrollment Tips

  • The system will open at 7 a.m. EST each day. 
  • You can find your exact registration date at MyBGSU > Student Center > Classes & Registration > Enrollment Appointments Info
  • You can find important dates and exam schedules on the Academic Calendars webpage.

Authorized Students are part of specific groups that are given early access to registration. This includes groups like military and Honors College students. If you have not been told you are an authorized student, you will select classes on the traditional day assigned to your class standing.
