UNF Registration and Course Planning Tool

UNF offers a robust system for you to plan future schedules and register for your classes smarter and faster! The UNF Registration and Course Planning System allows you and your advisor to create up to 10 future course plans and choose the one that best fits your needs. This intuitive system helps to keep you on track towards graduation! Download our FAQ's on the Registration and Course Planning system for more information.

  • Want to create a future plan? Click the Plan Ahead Option and login. Select a term and search for classes by subject, course number or keyword. Add the sections to your plan and save the schedule.
  • Want to register for a class? You can register for a class from the plans you saved. Or, you can click Register for Classes and login. Select the term and select classes by specific CRN on the Enter CRNs tab or use the Find Classes tab to search and select courses. Once your selected courses appear in the Summary Window, click the Submit button.

Add/Drop Classes

During the registration period for the term and through the last day of the add/drop week, you may make changes to your course schedule by either adding or dropping classes via myWings. Courses officially dropped during the add/drop period will not be entered on your permanent record and a refund will be issued if you previously paid for the course. The deadline to add or drop classes for the term is posted on the Academic Calendar.

Course Waitlist

If you try to register for a course that is full with no seats available in the class, you will receive a Registration Add Error indicating the course is closed. If seats are available, consider adding yourself to the course waitlist.

  • Once you try to add the course to your term schedule, the course will display as closed under the Registration Add Error indicator.
  • Use the Action drop-down menu to select Waitlisted
  • Submit changes
  • Once the page refreshes, the course will be listed under your Current Schedule with a status of Waitlisted

IMPORTANT: If you no longer wish to be on the waitlist for a course, it is your responsibility to drop the waitlisted course from your schedule. Follow the above Add/Drop Classes instructions to drop the course before the deadline to drop classes for the term. This deadline is posted on the Academic Calendar.


Refer to the list of Frequently Asked Questions regarding waitlisting for a course.

Registering in Audit Grade Mode

The University of North Florida allows students to audit classes if students indicate at the time of registration that they wish to audit the course rather than register for credit. Any change in status from credit to audit or audit to credit must be made before the close of drop/add. Please note that some classes are not able to be taken in audit grade mode. Fees for auditing classes are the same as enrolling for credit and are non-refundable. Courses will appear on the student's permanent academic record (transcript) with an "X" indicator.

Course Withdrawal

Once the deadline to add or drop classes passes for the term, you can no longer drop yourself from a course. Removing yourself from the course will result in a course withdrawal, which will be reflected on your academic record. We encourage you to speak to your academic advisor before withdrawing from a course. Withdrawing from classes can impact your financial aid for the current term and future terms. Before withdrawing from a course, read more about impacts of withdrawing from classes.

  • Log in to your myWings student portal
  • Select Registration box
  • Select Withdraw from Courses
  • Select the appropriate term from the drop-down menu and Submit
  • Use the Course Withdraws section to ensure you have withdrawals remaining to use under the Course Withdrawal Limitation Policy
  • Under the list of Registered Courses, a drop-down menu will display under New Registration Status
  • Select Withdraw from the drop-down menu
  • Select the Withdraw Courses button
  • The Registered Courses section will now display, "Course has been withdrawn" under the Message section
  • Your Course Withdraws should now reflect one less withdraw available under the limitations outlined in the Withdrawal Policy

The deadline to withdraw is posted on the Academic Calendar. If an unusual circumstance prevented you from withdrawing prior to the deadline, you may be able to petition to withdraw after the deadline. You will also remain fee liable for any withdrawn courses. If you feel extenuating circumstances result in your need to withdraw, you may file a Student Fee Petition. Withdrawing from courses may also impact you in the areas of the state-mandated Repeat Surcharge and Excess Hours Surcharge.

Registration Time Tickets

Your registration time ticket indicates the specific date and time you can register for classes via the UNF Registration and Course Planning Tool. Time ticket assignments are generally issued around two weeks before registration begins for the next term. Registration time ticket assignments are based on your current number of earned credit hours and does not include any courses for which you are currently enrolled, but have not yet earned a grade. Registration time ticket assignments are not impacted by student classification (senior, junior, sophomore, freshman) as the programming that assigns registration time tickets will only consider your total number of earned credit hours at the time the registration time ticket is issued.


Refer to the Academic Calendar for the date registration time tickets are issued. To locate your registration time ticket:

  • Log in to your myWings student portal
  • Select the Student Records tile > Student Self-Service
  • Select Registration > Registration and Course Planner
  • Select Prepare for Registration, choose a term drop-down option, and click continue

Students admitted to UNF in the following programs will be assigned a registration time ticket during Open Registration: Teacher Certification, Teacher Certification - Renewal, CPA, On Campus Transition and English Language Program. Refer to the Academic Calendar for the Open Registration date for your admission term.


Non-degree seeking Post Baccalaureate students, Learning for a Lifetime students or students who recently graduated from UNF but have not broken continuous enrollment will be assigned a registration time ticket for the Space Available registration date. This registration date is generally the last business day before classes begin for the term. Refer to the Academic Calendar for the specific Senior Citizen/Space Available Registration date.
