Spring 2021 Registration
Pre-Registration (Chicago Undergraduate students only): Appointments for non J-Term courses begin on October 22nd, 2020 and end on November 1st, 2020. To find your specific pre-registration appointment time, go to your my.moody.edu Student Center, to Enrollment Dates in the bottom right corner, and click “Details.”
Open Registration (all students): Open registration begins on November 2nd, 2020. All courses will be available for registration from this date until the first week of the semester (or until the week before any online course begins).
J-Term is a new spring semester learning option in which all students are welcome to participate. It offers a variety of courses in a 2-week intensive format. This is a great opportunity to get ahead in your academic program and lighten your future course load. J-Term takes place between January 11th and 22nd 2021, meaning courses begin and end before the start of the regular spring semester on January 25th. As J-Term course offerings are finalized, students will be able to find them under Spring 2021 in the Student Center Class Search. Please note:
- Students will be charged the normal rate of tuition ($360 per credit hour) for each J-Term course
- All J-Term courses will be ineligible for the Chicago Tuition Grant (for more questions, please email email@example.com call 312-329-4184)
- Registration for J-Term opens to all students on October 19th, 2020
Hyflex attendance practices will continue in the Spring 2021. This gives students taking on-campus courses in Chicago the option to attend these courses three different ways:
- Traditional/In-person/In-class attendance (check with instructor prior to class in case space is limited)
- Virtual synchronous attendance (instructor provides link to live lecture)
- Virtual asynchronous attendance (instructor records lecture; student may watch later)
J-Term courses will only be offering attendance options 2 & 3.

Change of Major Fee
Chicago undergraduate students who change their major will be charged a $250 fee if they have previously taken courses at Moody that no longer apply towards their new program requirements.
If you have questions about potentially changing your major, please contact the Office of Academic Records to meet with an academic advisor to discuss your options. It is recommended that you wait to take major-specific courses until you have decided which major you wish to pursue.
Please contact Academic Records if you have questions.
