When You Register

Choose the correct term (i.e. Fall, Spring, or Summer). Other options will give you an error.

  • Academic Year 2023-2024 only lists pre-professional academic learning communities. Choose it only if you want to register for one of these.

On NEST, use the Add/Drop Courses option if you have a list of CRNs. Use the Look Up Classes to Add option if you need to find courses.

If you receive a Registration Error, consult Registration Errors & Overrides.

Remain Calm. Start with resources on our webpages. Contact the Registrar's Office with questions.

  • Include your name and NET ID on all communication.
  • Brandeis 202 -- Bring your ID card with you!

You may change your schedule (Add/Drop) through the Add/Drop deadlines for the term in question.

If you must change your schedule after deadlines, you must follow instructions for approval. See Course Add/Drop/Withdrawal for instructions.
