JD Student Course Registration Form

Do not submit registration forms before your priority registration date begins. Forms submitted early, or forms with incomplete or incorrect information will be returned and will not processed.

If a course requires professor approval, you must email the professor from your TAMU student email account to secure approval and forward that approval to law-registrar@tamu.edu.  Your email must contain your name, UIN, the Course Title, Number and CRN.

Please use separate forms for each separate semester (i.e. do not register/add/drop for Winter courses and Spring courses on the same form).

Items with an asterisk(*) are required.

This form should be used for limited enrollment courses. Register through Howdy whenever possible. This course request will be processed as quickly as possible. You will receive an email notification if we are unable to process your request for any reason.

*Term or Semester for which you are registering:*

A change of status from full-time to part-time hours, or vice versa, is allowed only upon approval of the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs. Please check your hours before adding or dropping courses to avoid a status change.
Examples for fields below:
  • Course Name:  Intro to Law
  • Course & Sect # or CRN #:  LAW-768-600 or 54321
"Course & Sect # or CRN #" and "Add or Drop" fields are REQUIRED fields for EACH Course Name you list.

Limited Enrollment Courses and Waitlisting Procedures

If you are waitlisted for a class, you must submit a course drop form to be removed from that waitlist. If a seat becomes available and you have not submitted a course drop form, you will be registered for that class and billed accordingly.

Limited enrollment classes are based on earned hours and not date/time of form submission. Waitlist priorities can change at any time based on who submits a request. You will be higher on the list than students with fewer earned hours but students with more earned hours will have a higher priority. However, you will not be removed from a class that you have been registered for.


If I am classified as a full-time J.D. student, I understand that I may not take more than 16 credit hours per fall or spring semester and the majority of my classes must be scheduled in the day. By registering as a full-time student, I affirm that I am not working more than 20 hours per week during the semester. I understand that failure to comply with this requirement may be a violation of the Code of Conduct.

If I am registering for a summer session, I understand that if I am working more than 20 hours a week, I may not enroll for more than 6 credit hours, including non-classroom hours such as Externship and Law Review.


If you have clicked on "Submit" but the form remains open without a confirmation screen, a required field has not been completed. Please ​scroll back up through the form and complete all required fields. Missing information will be indicated in red text.
