How to Register for Courses

Please note: UR Student registration is for students who have been admitted to a master's, doctoral or certificate program. Students who want to take a course before being admitted to a program can try us out by taking a class.

Registration Dates

Registration is open for the Summer and Fall 2024 semesters. 

Getting Started

To access the UR Student portal, you will need your Active Directory credential and be enrolled in Duo, the University's two-factor authentication program. Contact support@warner.rochester.edu for help with Active Directory or Duo.
