Registration Instructions

Courses at the University of Florida fill up quickly, so students are encouraged to complete course registration requirements as early as possible to improve their chances of getting their top course choices. Students will be registered in the order that they complete all requirements.

We are unable to register students for classes until all university holds have been removed. Please pay close attention to the course registration requirements, as one hold will prevent registration.

Course registration requirements:

  1. Submit Online Course Request Form.
    Students must remove all holds before being registered for courses. Students will be registered for courses in the order that they become eligible for registration.

  2. Submit all required immunization and insurance documents to the UF International Center.
    We will not be able to register any students who have immunization or insurance holds. Please submit these forms as soon as possible and ensure documentation conforms to the guidelines as detailed on the second page of the form. Email Health Compliance at the UF Student Health Care Center or call (352) 294-2925 for questions about insurance or immunizations. The infirmary does not contact students regarding their immunization form, even if the form is rejected. You must check your hold to determine if your form was accepted.
