Once you complete the pre-registration portion for Academic Advising & Registration your next step is to schedule an appointment with your advisor if you have not already done so, please return to Module One in your Online Orientation to view the New Student Advising & Registration Appointment Access document. This document provides the name of the advisor and the instructions on how to schedule the appointment. Academic Advisors have responsibility for certain majors and certain students during the orientation phase of enrollment.

If you are planning to use financial aid and have not already completed your FAFSA, please do so promptly. Bills are due five days before the class(es) begin. Please see One Stop Student Services if you have any questions or concerns about billing, student accounts or registration. If you would like a third party (such as a parent, guardian or guest) to have access privileges to view/pay your bill, class schedule and/or grades, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) requires a release by the student. Please visit the Delegated Access page to give access to those whom you wish to have access to your school information.
If you expect to receive a refund, please sign up for direct deposit to expedite the processing of your refund.
Authorization to Use Financial Aid
Catalyst To-Do list item: Permission must be granted so that financial aid will be applied to anything on the student bill (like eBooks, student health insurance, late fees). Otherwise, financial aid only pays on the cost of tuition.
All UC students registered for six or more credit hours are required to have health insurance. UC will automatically enroll you in the University health insurance plan to assure we meet this federal regulation. If you have private coverage, you can waive this health insurance plan, but must do so by the associated deadline.
Check your UC Email Account
Your UC email account is the official communication tool of the University. Billing, financial aid and academic information will be communicated via UC email as soon as you confirm admission; we recommend you check this account daily.
