Registration/Student Planning

Registration for Summer 2018 will take place on Thursday, April 12th.

Registration for Fall 2018 will take place one week later on Thursday, April 19th.

Students will be broken into groups that will be authorized to register each hour. The timing will be assigned based on anticipated graduation date.

Students approaching graduation in December 2018 will be given earlier registration times followed by those graduating in May 2019, and so on.

To find your registration time, visit Student Planning on the Summer 2018 and Fall 2018 Washington College of Law Term tabs through Eagle Service on MyAU. If you don't see those terms, click the + button to add them to your student plan.

To log into Student Planning, go to your MyAU portal. Click on Finance, then on Eagle Service and select Student Planning and click on the tab that says Summer/Fall 2018 Washington College of Law Term.

Your Summer/Fall 2018 registration appointment date and time will be displayed at the top of your page in a colored bar. You will be able to add courses to your schedule and use the calendar view to see your planned schedule.

Remember: you are not enrolled in "planned" courses. Those are colored yellow. You must add an available section to your plan and click the "Register" button in order to be enrolled in each course. If the course is green with a check mark then you'll know you are actually registered for the course/credits.

Once your appointment time begins, you will have until the end of the add/drop period to enroll or make changes to your schedule.

For Summer/Fall 2018, Spaces will be held for one week for part-time students in elective classes and seminars that have both day and evening sections, at which point any interested student may register for those courses.

Please contact the Office of the Registrar at with any questions or concerns.
