Advising

  • January 7th, 2020

It is not too early to meet with your academic advisor so you can clear your registration holds in time for priority registration.  Advisors are decided by the department in which you are majoring.  Check your department’s website for more information.

If you are registered with ODS and we do not need any more documentation from you, you have priority registration.  To check, you can email us at ods@ua.edu with your name, CWID, and inquiry about whether or not you have priority registration.  If you have had priority registration in the past, you still have it.

Check the Registrar’s website for specific dates and times of priority registration based on the number of credit hours you have earned.
