  • Registration Time
  • Check Schedule Builder for your Pass I date and time.  UHP's priority registration will begin in Fall quarter for Winter quarter registration.

    Course Registration Begins (It is recommended to register during the first day of your registration window, at 8:00 a.m.)

    College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences              August 1-2                                         

    College of Biological Sciences                                                 August 3-4

    College of Letters and Science                                                August 7-8 or August 9-10

    College of Engineering                                                            August 11-12

    Students with an earlier registration time are not advantaged in course registration over students with a later registration time. The university works with the academic colleges who reserve open spaces in courses and release a portion of open seats during each registration window to help create equality in course registration.

  • UHP Registration Support
  • Your UHP advisor will be available during your registration window if you experience any registration problems. Refer to the e-mail you received with your assigned UHP course for the Zoom link.
  • Housing
  • As a UHP student you will reside in the UHP Living-Learning Community (LLC) in Currant Hall.  For more information on housing dates and deadlines, visit their website. On the housing application, you will select no Living-Learning Community preference. UHP will provide a list of names to Housing to be grouped in our LLC. 

    Please note that there is a $250 reservation fee that is required along with the housing application and will take 24 hours to process before you can complete the housing application. It is important to keep this in mind when ensuring that you submit your housing application by the deadline. If you are unable to pay your reservation fee, there is a section on the Housing application that you can select that you need financial assistance. You will be prompted to enter a reason (i.e. part of EOP) and once approved the student is granted an offset and you are able to complete your application. In addition, if you were eligible for an SIR waiver, your housing application will let you know and will allow you to automatically bypass the payment screen.
