Advising and Registration

Registration is a great time to explore all that Emory has to offer. We encourage new students to think of course registration (enrollment) as a process and not as an event. 

Before registration, students will complete Emory Essentials online learning modules and have the opportunity to meet with their OUE Academic Advisor to complete Pre-Registration Advising. During Pre-Registration Advising meetings, OUE Academic Advisors will review first-year requirements, General Education Requirements, and ideas for the fall schedule.

See below for course registration timeline and dates:

Course Registration

Tuesday, August 9 at 12PM (EDT) - Thursday, August 11 at 11:59PM (EDT) 

You may register for up to 19 total credit hours (this does not include credits you are bringing into Emory) during this initial course registration period. 

On Tuesday, August 9 between 12PM (EDT) - 11:59PM (EDT), you will be able to register for up to 8 credit hours.

Then, between Wednesday, August 10 at 12PM (EDT) - Thursday, August 11 at 11:59PM (EDT), you can register for your remaining credit hours.

During the registration period, you can also add, drop, or swap courses as long as you stay between 12 and 19 credit hours. As a reminder, you must register for a minimum of 12 credit hours. 


Tuesday, August 23 at 12PM (EDT) - Wednesday, September 7 at 11:59PM (EDT) 

You can continue making any adjustments to your schedule during this time along with all other current students. After September 7 at 11:59PM, you will no longer be able to make changes to your schedule. Many student schedules may change during this period and it is a great opportunity to make helpful adjustments to your schedule. 

We encourage you to review the Everything Emory guide for more details.

Advising and Registration Frequently Asked Questions

As an incoming first-year student, you will be assigned an Office for Undergraduate Education (OUE) Academic Advisor who will meet with you prior to August and throughout your four years at Emory. After completing your Student Profile this summer, you will be invited to sign-up for a small group virtual advising session held on various dates throughout July. More information will be available over the summer. Students are asked to refrain from reaching out to advisors before this time as our advising team continues to support upperclass students during the spring and early summer months. 

You will register for courses online during the summer before arriving to campus. Registration dates and times can be found on this website.

Summer classes are coordinated through the Office of International and Summer Programs (OISP). Please consult their website for more information and updates for Fall 2022.

You will complete Emory Essentials and meet with your OUE Academic Advisor before registering for classes over the summer. During Emory Essentials, you will learn and practice how to build a fall schedule. Emory Essentials will also cover:

  • Pre-professional advising resources
  • How to use OPUS to register for courses
  • Academic policies

During your Pre-Registration Advising meeting, you will have the opportunity to speak with your OUE Academic Advisor about:

  • Your Fall Schedule (it's a good idea to have some courses in your shopping cart before attending your meeting)
  • First-Year Requirements
  • General Education Requirements
  • The difference in class formats
