Early registration for fall classes begins on April 12

Monday, April 12, 2021 to Friday, April 23, 2021

Many of our courses are restricted to our majors (Actuarial Science, Data Science and Statistics) through April 23. Actuarial Science Interest is a holding place and MYUI does not recognize it as a major so often special permission will be required.

If you want to add one of our FALL 2021 courses, you can do so when your registration window opens on MYUI.  If the class you want to add is full, add your name to the waiting list.  We are going to offer additional seats in many of our classes and preference will be given to our students who are on these wait lists.  We do not know if additional classes will be offered or conducted virtually at this time. The PLAN is to have most classes held FACE-TO-FACE. 

When emailing PLEASE include:

  • Students full name
  • UI # or Hawk Id
  • What course number and SECTION number
