Registration Deadline Dates

Boise State University’s Academic Calendars list all of the registration deadline dates for the current catalog year. The calendar specifies the policy deadlines, by semester and session, for the following: registration, adding and dropping classes, and withdrawals. You are strongly encouraged to familiarize yourself with these calendars, especially the Deadlines by Session table, as you will be held accountable for meeting these deadlines.

The registration section of this site discusses orientation, dropping or adding courses, and withdrawals. Registration takes place each semester and summer session. It consists of three distinct phases: continuing, new, and open registration. You will be assigned a registration appointment day and time. Beginning at that time and until registration closes, you can log into your Student Center via myBoiseState and register. General descriptions of continuing, new, and open registration are provided in Enrollment Appointments.

In addition, these pages define the policies and procedures governing complete withdrawals from Boise State, faculty-initiated withdrawals, and administrative withdrawals from the university. The adding classes page defines policies governing credit status and audit status.
