International exchange students may register for classes before their arrival to UM. If students choose to register prior to their arrival, they will increase their likelihood of enrolling in their preferred classes and still have the option to change their classes after they arrive. Students at the undergraduate level must register for at least 12 credits; students at the graduate level must register for at least 9 credits. Every student will be assigned an academic advisor in their acceptance packet to assist with choosing appropriate courses. Please note that some classes may require extra fees, which are noted in the online Class Schedule system.
A listing of all courses offered by UM for any given academic year can be accessed through the University Catalog.
Classes that are available and offered for a specific semester can be found using the online Course Search. Students can search for classes and find their scheduled day, time, professor, and location. Any special fees for the classes (for which the student will be responsible) are also listed here. It is important to note the five-digit Course Request Number (CRN), as it will be required to register.
Registration is usually available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through Cyberbear. In order to access Cyberbear, the student is required to enter their NetID, provided in the student’s acceptance packet, and PIN (Personal Identification Number). The first time a student logs in to Cyberbear, the student’s PIN will be the last six digits of that individual’s student ID number (790#).
