Spring Registration for UI Courses

Early registration for Spring classes begins on November 11th, 2020. See your advisers early!

Many of our courses are restricted to our majors (Actuarial Science, Data Science and Statistics) through November 22. 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 spring 2020 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.  If MYUI will NOT let you get on the waiting list, please contact us directly at statistics@uiowa.edu or actuarial-science@uiowa.edu
