What is the difference between pre-enrollment and enrollment?

Pre-Enrollment is when you select courses in TigerEnroll and submit them for advisor approval. This temporarily secures your classes.  Enrollment is when you complete the Enrollment/Payment tab in TigerEnroll, selecting your payment method and permanently securing your approved classes, also referred to as finalizing enrollment. More information can be found on the Student Fiscal Services Enrollment page.

When can I pre-enroll?

Pre-enrollment dates are based on your classification and can be viewed by semester on the Academic Calendar. We encourage you to begin planning your schedule with your advisor prior to the first day you are eligible to pre-enroll.

When do I enroll (finalize enrollment)?

Once your advisor approves your schedule, you are encouraged to finalize your enrollment at the first opportunity. It is extremely important not to miss the enrollment deadlines which are available on the Academic Calendar and on the TigerEnroll Enrollment/Payment tab according to the semester selected. If you fail to finalize your enrollment by the deadline, all pre-enrolled classes will be removed from your schedule.
