*Some students must file proof of MMR (measles, mumps, rubella) immunization with Student
Health Services in order to register as full-time students. If you are such a student
and have not filed your proof, you will be limited to part-time status until you do
so. You will see the "measles" message after you click [Submit Changes], and you will
notice that you were not enrolled in all the courses you selected. See: Immunization > MMR for information on submitting your proof.
If You Are Degree Seeking but Have NOT Been Cleared by Your Advisor to Register:
