Course Registration and Withdrawal

Go to MyAccess and register for the classes needed according to your coursework. Your program’s curriculum is listed via the program link in the Microbiology & Immunology Academics section. For further instructions, visit BGE Academics.

If you wish to take an elective course outside of MICB, please reach out to the director(s) of the course(s) you want to take to ensure it is available, and to your program director to ensure the course(s) is acceptable toward your degree.

Once classes begin, you should be able to log in to Canvas with your netID and netID password to see the majority of your courses that you have officially registered for listed on this online platform. Please note that not all of your professors use this online platform for every class, so do not panic if you do not see one of your classes listed. Be sure to communicate with your professor to clarify whether they will be using this online platform or not.

Students should be able to add and drop courses before the end of Add/Drop registration period online through MyAccess. However, if you are unable to add or drop the course online, then you will need to complete the Add/Drop Form and hand in the forms to the program coordinator and the University Registrar.

If students wish to drop and withdraw from a course after the end of Add/Drop registration period, students will also need to use the Add/Drop Form to withdraw before the course withdrawal deadline. 

For Add/Drop dates, visit BGE Academics and click “Registration Dates” under Important Dates.

Academic Calendar

Consult the Main Campus Academic Calendar for add/drop deadlines, exams, holidays and other important dates.
