What courses are not available through UR Student?

Please submit the ECMS Registration Form instead of registering through UR Student for the following activities:

New lessons on a new instrument or with a new teacher
Early Childhood classes

Does your course require permission to register?
Click here for a list of ensembles that require instructor permission and directions for requesting permission.

If no permission is required (most courses), click “Academics” then “Find Course Sections” then select your course section and click “Register”
Click here for step-by-step instructions.

Important: You must click the gray “REGISTER” button, not the blue “add to schedule” button!


Important Information

Online re-registration will be open from May 1 through September 15, 2021. 

Students will register for the full semester, and most registrations roll over for automatic spring registration (except for 10-week sessions or less, such as Early Childhood and Bridges courses).

If you have scheduled more or fewer than 17 lessons with your teacher, you may register online and then send an email to the ECMS Registrar to request an adjustment to the number of lessons.

Students under the age of 18 are required to have a parent complete this process.

Need Help?
