Registering for Classes
When to Register
Start registering for classes at your initial enrollment appointment time/time ticket *. See the academic calendar to find out when you can see your appointment time via R’Web or view instructions here.
You may register during initial and makeup enrollment. During initial enrollment, undergraduate students may register for a maximum of 17 units. During makeup enrollment, the maximum for undergraduate students is increased according to the college in which you belong. See the academic calendar for all registration phases.
R’Web is normally available 24/7 except for occasional maintenance periods. Please note staff support is not available during non-business hours.
How to Register
Log in to R'Web
Log in to R’Web with your NetID and password.
Need a NetID or forget your NetID/password? When you go to R’Web, select Password Reset. You will answer several security questions and then you will be provided with your NetID and password.
If you have forgotten your student ID, you will need to contact the Office of the Registrar at (951) 827-7284.
Resolve Your Holds
If you have outstanding holds, an information box will appear when you first log in to R’Web letting you know right away. This information includes how to resolve your hold. The department initiating the hold must lift it before you can register for classes. You can also go to the “Holds” icon or the Student Profile in R’Web to see all your current holds.
Once you have selected the “Registration” icon via R’Web, you can select “Prepare for Registration” to determine if your registration status, time ticketing and other requirements are met to allow you to register.
If you are ready to register and your time ticketing time has arrived, select “Register for Classes” and select the appropriate term.
If you have an approved term plan, you will see it by selecting the Plan tab within Registration. Enroll for your classes from that plan. If you were not required to have a term plan approved, you will be able to see your four-year course plan or a term plan you personally created. Use those plans as easy guides to register for classes and stay on track for graduation.
Add, Drop, Change or Wait-List for Classes
Add a Class
Once you find a course and select ADD, it will show the course in your Summary with a status of “Pending.” To process the request, press SUBMIT.
If a linked discussion or lab section is required, please ensure all linked sections are in your Summary before you click SUBMIT. If there is room in the class, and you meet all requirements, the course status will now read “Registered.”
If the course you have selected is a variable unit course, it will show as only 1 unit when you first submit your enrollment. After you are successfully enrolled in the course, you can use the “Schedule and Options” tab to adjust your variable units accordingly. When it is a variable unit course, the unit amount is a hyperlink. Click on the number and a box will open for you to adjust the units. Once you are done, click SUBMIT at the bottom right to save your change. See detailed instructions here.
Drop a Class
Find the course you want to drop in your Summary area of registration. Select "Drop" from the action dropdown menu. Remember to also drop any linked lab or discussion sections. Select "Submit." The course status should now read "Dropped." You are allowed to drop classes through Friday of the second week of instruction using these steps. After that, it's called "withdrawing" from a class and requires extra steps. See Enrollment Adjustments for details.
Change a Discussion or Lab Section
To change a discussion or a lab section, you will want to add the new section to your
Summary, and then select to drop your original section. If you want to ensure your
enrolled section will not be dropped unless the requested section can successfully
be added, use the Conditional Add and Drop box. The Conditional Add and Drop box ensures that both transactions are successful,
or neither will be completed. This ensures that you don’t lose your seat in your original
section before you know you can successfully gain access to the other section.
Add or Remove Yourself From a WaitlistPlease see Waitlist Information.
Review Your Classes and Exit Securely
Select "Schedule and Options" to view your final class schedule. If you would like to print or email your schedule, you can use the icons at the top right. See more details.
If everything looks all right, exit R'Web, clear your cache (if you are on a public computer) and quit your Web browser.
A Note on Attendance
If you do not attend class during the first and second weeks of instruction, you may be dropped from the course or receive an "F" or "NC." To avoid this, drop the class using R’Web (if it’s before the end of the add/drop period) or file an enrollment adjustment form (if it’s after the end of the add/drop period). Refer to individual course listings for specific information about drops for nonattendance. Class listings in the class schedule identify courses with mandatory attendance policies. Contact the academic department involved for more information about policies affecting specific courses.
A Note on Full-Time Status and "Finishing in Four"
To be considered a full-time student at UCR, you must enroll in at least 12 units per quarter. However, undergraduate students must average 15 units per quarter in order to graduate in four years. MBA students are considered full-time at 16 units. Students in the online masters in engineering program are considered full-time at 9 units.
* Earned units determine your time ticket (students with more register first). Pending transfer units do not count as earned units until official transcripts are processed. Priority registration is reserved for: Regents and Chancellor's Scholars, students with disabilities, foster youth, graduate students, student athletes/team managers, University Honors students and veterans/military.
