Registering for Courses

Registering for Courses

Students register for courses during assigned registration periods that are announced by the Office of the Registrar in consultation with the academic leadership of the university. Before the registration period starts, the Office of the Registrar publishes the schedule of classes for the upcoming term, complete with delivery mode, room numbers, class times, and start and end dates.


As a general rule, students register through the AUA Jenzabar Sonis portal. Please see below for a list of countries in which you need to use VPN to access Jenzabar.
