How to Register

If you are new to the Sturm College of Law:

  • Incoming first year JD students are automatically enrolled by the Law Registrar’s Office for their Fall and Spring semesters (the Spring semester enrollments will occur in November/December).
  • Visiting, transfer students, non-JD and dual degree students will receive instructions and time ticket information via email following deposit.

Get started by following the general registration procedures:

1. Review the upcoming course schedule.

2. Review email containing time ticket information received from the Office of the Registrar.

  • Time tickets are assigned by credit hours completed and credit hours in-progress. New students will receive a time ticket after they deposit, as soon as registration becomes available for incoming students.

3. Confirm you are on track to graduate, and prepare your future schedule.

  • Know your degree requirements—see the JD degree plan form for more information. Non-JD students should refer to the current DU Bulletin.
  • Review your status towards completing degree requirements by reviewing your degree audit in MyDU.

4. Check your registration status.

  • Check for holds in MyDU.
  • Clear all holds before your registration time opens. The Law Registrar’s Office is unable to lift holds.
  • JD students should complete a credit overload petition if you plan to take more than the maximum allowed credit hours (greater than 15 credits for full-time students and 12 credits for part-time students). If the petition is approved, your credit maximum will be adjusted accordingly.

5. Register for classes online (Registration How-To) once your time ticket opens. Make sure to select “semester” in the registration system.  Sturm College of Law does not offer any courses on the quarter calendar.

  • Place yourself on the wait list for closed or full classes

6. Verify billing and address information in MyDU.

If you have any questions throughout the process, please contact the Law Registrar’s Office during business hours at or 303.871.6132.
