Any deviation from that plan must be approved by your advisor and recorded on the degree plan in your file. Non-matriculated students DO NOT register through UR Student. See: Non-Matriculated Course Registration.

New students in the Accelerated Nursing Programs should refer to their Incoming Student Portal for information on which courses to register for the first semester.

Holds on your student account prevent you from performing certain tasks, such as registering for a Course Section. Holds can be found by clicking on “Academics” icon inside the “Applications” area on the home screen. To have the hold lifted, you need to complete a series of actions, but these depend on the type of hold applied. To view, follow these steps in UR Student.

If you need assistance with holds, please refer to the details and contact information provided for the hold. Likewise, if you are returning from leave you must complete a Return from Leave form prior to registration.

  • For the Academic Period enter “Summer 2024 Nursing”
  • For the Academic Level choose “Graduate” or “Undergraduate” as appropriate
  • For the Campus Locations leave it blank and then click “Ok”

A list of available courses will appear. Scroll through the list to find your desired course and click on it to ensure it is the correct one. Click on the “Register” button at the bottom of the screen.

Registering for Courses from Saved Schedule

In UR Student, you also have the option to use the “Saved Schedule” feature to help you build your schedule before registration. If you use this feature, you will still need to return to UR Student after the registration period opens to register for the appropriate courses. Selecting courses for “Saved Schedule” DOES NOT register you for courses. See more on How to Register from a Saved Schedule.

If you are not able to resolve the issue, please contact for assistance. You can also check on your current course registration by clicking “View My Courses” in the Academics section of your homepage.
