Registration for classes can be completed until the deadline specified on the University Calendar. Pre-registration, which takes place the preceding semester, is done by selecting the courses to be taken through the “Hokie Spa” portal on the World Wide Web. It is important to pre-register. If you are on an assistantship and your tuition is being paid for you, failing to pre-register could cause you to be assessed a late fee. In addition, the Department often cancels under-enrolled courses based upon pre-registration statistics. Also, pre-registration ensures continuity of access to resources, such as wireless internet and the student health center.
