Spring New Student Registration | University of Portland

Spring New Student Registration

All new students (first-year and transfer students) are registered for classes for their first term by a program counselor in their major school or college. Students are registered for courses that satisfy university core requirements, college requirements, and major requirements. Therefore, everyone's schedules will look different depending on their major.
