When to Register (Priority Registration)

See priority registration dates in the table below. It is your responsibility to be aware of all other registration dates and deadlines.

Spring and Summer Priority Registration

Everyone has the same priority registration date for Spring and Summer. It is March 1st.

Fall and Winter Priority Registration

You can begin registering on your assigned priority registration date which is determined by the number of credit hours earned through the most recently completed semester or term. For transfer students, this includes transfer credit accepted by BYU. The dates are assigned and posted to MyMAP a few weeks before it begins and an email notice is sent.

New Freshman

New Freshman admitted to fall semester are randomly assigned a date for registration during the second week of June. This includes returned missionaries who did not attend before their mission. If you have AP credit or other transfer work, but have not yet attended BYU, you will still be assigned a June registration date. For your second semester, all completed/accepted credit hours will be considered when your date is assigned.

Choosing Your Courses

First, you need to find the classes you want to take.

  • Browse the catalog for major requirements and course offerings. Use the class schedule to find class using helpful filters, like time of day or instructor.

Next, go to MyMAP to plan your schedule and officially register.

Most classes are available for online registration in MyMAP anytime through the add/drop deadline. There are some courses that require a permission-to-add code. This is indicated by a note in the class information.

Before Priority Registration – Cart

The registration cart is an optional feature in MyMAP to help you plan ahead. For help understanding and using the registration cart, visit the Registration Cart page.

Adding Classes

The Add Classes page in MyMAP allows you to search for classes you want to register for. Once you find the class you want to add, click the action links in the left-hand columns of the add-class table.
