  • Please check your Registration Information Sheet (RIS) for your specific window of access to the registration system to enroll yourself in classes.
  • If a course shows "open; reserved" or "waitlisted," please add yourself to the waitlist, as any open seats will be filled from the waitlist. Should seats remain open near to the start of class, any open seats will be filled from the waitlist.
  • If you are a triple major or a declared major/minor in a subject but do not yet have access to priority seating for the class please email the academic advisor(s) for that subject for further help accessing necessary coursework.
  • If you are in need of a prerequisite waiver to register and meet the qualifications to request a waiver (ie-you've completed transfer coursework that does not yet show on your audit or you have the ability to claim CR for prerequisite coursework), please EMAIL your request and include any supporting documentation attached as PDF.

 

Declare Major/Minor:

 

  • Currently a student in another college? Declare your Spanish/Portuguese major using the Internal Transfer Portal.
  • Currently a Liberal Arts student? Declare your Spanish/Portuguese major by emailing the Undergraduate Academic Advisor.
  • Wish to declare your SPN/POR minor or your SPN certificate? You may do so HERE. (Once you have applied for the minor, you'll need to contact your major advisor to have them attach it to your major profile or the SPN Advisor to have a certificate made "standalone" so that you may have priority access to reserved seats in restricted courses.)
