Registering for Classes

How to Register

  • How to guides
  • Log into MyUTK, then go to the Student Registration Links and select Search For Classes.

Class Registration Change

  • You can no longer be on the waitlist for multiple sections of the same class. You’re limited to one waitlist per class.
  • You also can’t be on the waitlist for a different section of a class you’re already taking. You can either take a class or be on one waitlist for it.

These changes allow the administration to have a more realistic picture of the seats available for classes and let them know when to create additional sections for a course. The changes also give students better access to classes needed to graduate on time.

The class registration system will automatically implement these changes when you sign up for classes.
