  • Search for your required courses in the Add/Drop box on the right side of the screen. There are several ways to search for courses: department, area requirement, day/time, etc. However, it is important to note that you must first select the correct term – the semester you are registering for NOT current semester.

How do I know which courses to choose?

It’s important to discuss your plan of study with an advisor in advance of registering. If you’re not sure how to contact you advisor, please reach out to the Office of Graduate Admission who can connect you.

Why did I receive an error message?

MyDU will generate an error message for issues such as prerequisites not being met, time conflicts or courses that are full. Also, avoid using the back button on your browser. Instead, please use the ‘search again’ or ‘back’ feature on the page.

What if a class is full?

A class that is full will show 0 in the Seats Open column. You can still "add" the class if you want to be wait listed. You can check the number of students already on the waitlist by clicking directly on the course number. In the example below, there are three students already on the waitlist. If a space does open, you will be notified by email and the course will automatically be added to your schedule.
