Preregister for Spring 2019 classes

Preregistration begins October 22 through November 16 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An undergraduate student is eligible to enroll for a course to be superseded starting on their preregistration enrollment date based on their earned credit hours.

A student MUST submit an electronic Petition to Supersede before attempting to enroll in the class.

The Petition to Supersede may be completed starting on Monday, October 22 as follows:

  • Log into CatPAWS.
  • 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  • A list of courses eligible to be superseded will be displayed, grouped by Transfer, Northwest and Registered courses. Click on the course link to be superseded.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.
