Registration Dates

New freshmen admitted fall semester, no matter how many transfer credits you have, are randomly assigned a date for registration. Your priority registration date will be posted to MyMAP a few weeks before registration begins, at which point you’ll be notified by email.

MyMAP is BYU's tool to help you plan and register for classes. MyMAP contains registration, your class schedule, and tools to plan out future semesters. Other links on MyMAP to help you register include:
  • Progress Report: an official report of completed college work.
  • Class Schedule: the place to find detailed information about courses you're interested in and the days or times they are offered.
  • Major Academic Plans (MAPs): give you the recommended sequence of courses for each major.

Registration Cart

The Registration Cart is a useful, timesaving feature that automatically adds classes to your schedule. To use it, simply go into MyMAP and search for classes. As you plan your schedule, add each class to your cart. Then, submit your cart by 6 p.m. MT the day before your priority registration date. The classes will then be added automatically to your schedule. However, keep in mind that using the cart does not reserve seats or guarantee you will get the classes you save.

If a class you want to register for is already full, you can place yourself on a Waitlist for that class. This places you in a registration queue and automatically adds the class to your schedule if it becomes available. You can add a class that is full to your waitlist in MyMAP.
