Preparing for Registration

Before Preview, complete the Preparing for Registration modules. These narrated, online tutorials introduce topics like the University catalog, general and departmental education requirements, how to prepare a course schedule, and what to expect during registration at Preview.

The modules are hosted online in Blackboard, which is a web-based course management system.
