The Spring 2020 schedule of classes is now viewable on PatriotWeb.  Registration will begin on November 5th. To determine your individual registration time, please check PatriotWeb <> under "Registration Status and Time Ticket, Override Notification, Wait List Position".   We encourage you to check the schedule of classes frequently on PatriotWeb as the schedule may change.

Please note the following important wait list procedures:

*         Students will be sent e-mails (to their Mason e-mail accounts) when waitlist overrides are issued.  Students will not be able to waitlist for a course if the following apply:

  1.  They are already registered for another section of the same course.
  2.  They are already on a waitlist for another section of the same course
