Credit will be given only for those courses for which a student has properly registered.
Priority registration is the period before open registration in which undergraduate degree students may begin course registration for an upcoming fall/spring semester or term. Dates and deadlines for priority registration are designated by class level and posted on the Academic Calendar. Registration access codes (RACs) are required to complete priority registration by Durham and Manchester undergraduate degree students.
Early Priority Registration
Veteran students are assigned early priority registration. This means that Veteran students register during the initial registration period of their designated class level.
Student athletes are assigned early priority registration. This means that student athletes register during the initial registration period for their designated class level.
Registration Access Code (RAC)
Registration access codes are assigned to avoid overloading the registration system during the high demand course registration periods for fall and spring courses. Registration access codes are assigned to eligible students based on their current class level. RAC times are assigned randomly within class levels from earliest to latest and cannot be changed. RACs are released to students by their academic advisor.
- Durham and Manchester undergraduate degree students are assigned a RAC for fall and spring priority registration.
