Preregistration begins March 27 through April 14 based on your total earned credit hours.  Your total (overall) earned credit hours can be found in CatPAWS under Student » Student Records » Academic Transcript (at the bottom of the page).


An undergraduate student is eligible to enroll for a course to be superseded starting on their preregistration enrollment date based on their earned credit hours.

  • Click on the Student tab.
  • Click on the Registration tile.
  • Click on the Supersede Petition link.
  • Choose the term in which the student wishes to supersede the course.
  • A list of courses eligible to be superseded will be displayed, grouped by Transfer, Northwest and Registered courses. Click on the course link to be superseded.
  • Review the course and click Submit Supersede.
  • Review the confirmation of the supersede petition completion.
  • Completion of the Supersede Petition places a Permit on the eligible course
  • A student should then go to the Registration menu and enroll in the class section
    • Providing the course is open, and there are no prerequisite or co-requisite issues, the student may self-register for the course.
