Schedule Adjustments for Fall 2020

Information about the changes to Fall 2020 class registration.

You may be aware that the university announced in May that Fall 2020 registration would be postponed due to the challenges of COVID-19. Previous registration carts were expired on Friday, May 29th. 

President Worthen announced on June 23, 2020 plans for an in-person fall semester with class options that will accommodate safety guidelines to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

Priority registration for fall semester will begin on July 6. You have been assigned a new priority registration date and cart submission deadline which you can see in MyMAP or on the Register for Classes page. You will be able to see the classes you had previously saved to your cart by viewing your cart history. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Please refer to byu.edu/coronavirus for the most up-to-date information regarding the impacts of COVID-19 on Fall 2020.

When will registration start?

Priority registration is planned to begin on July 6th.

When will I know what my registration date is? Will I have the same day in relation to everyone else?

You will receive a YMessage when your new priority registration date has been assigned. The date will be posted in MyMAP. The date will be assigned according to your credit hours as of the end of Spring 2020. 

According to the priority registration chart, I should have an earlier registration date based on my credits. Is there a way to change my date?

If your priority registration date does not align with your completed credits, you can click “recalculate” on the Register tab of MyMAP. (It looks like a refresh button and is located next to your registration date for fall semester.) This will update your registration date to what it should be.

Will the new fall schedule be released before my registration date? How far in advance? 

Yes, the new fall class schedule is available to view at classschedule.byu.edu and via MyMAP.  

I’m a freshman. Is there a chance I could get an earlier or later registration date because of this change?  

Your registration date will be in the same sequence as it was previously assigned.  

Are the same classes going to be offered at the same times? Are there any classes that will no longer be offered this Fall?  

Every department has adjusted their class offerings to incorporate new instruction modes. Some classes may not be offered.  

What will the new deadline be to submit my cart?   

It will be 6:00 p.m. the evening before your new registration date.  

Is there a way to see what I previously saved in my registration cart?

What should I do if the class(es) I need to graduate in December isn’t offered Fall semester?  

You should contact your advisement center to discuss your options and graduation plan. It would be best to contact them after the updated Fall class schedule is published.  

Will there be more sections of classes or less?  

The number of sections offered will be up to individual departments. 

If classes are offered in person, will class sizes be adjusted?
