Do you know the meeting times, days and room locations for your fall courses? Did you register for courses before the summer session and haven't looked at your schedule since? The Office of the University Registrar recommends that all students access their current schedule information before the start of the fall semester.

You may access your schedule by logging into the Registration & Information Center (available at http://www.uakron.edu/) with your active UANet ID and Password, or by calling 330-972-8083 and listening to a list of your courses. Information regarding your course meeting times, days, and room location is given in "real-time" -- all information is up to date the moment you retrieve it.

Signs regarding course room changes will be posted on classroom doors beginning Monday, August 18, 2003. Any room changes made prior to August 18 will not be posted.

If you have any questions regarding your course schedule, please feel free to contact the Office of the University Registrar at Registrar@uakron.edu or 330-972-8300.
