Preparing for Registration
Please check your student record on MySlice for any ‘holds’ that may have been placed on your record. You can do that by navigating to MySlice>Student Home>Holds OR MySlice>Student Home>Enrollment>Holds. You can get help with registration online here. It may take a few days for a hold to be resolved, so please do check this as soon as possible. Holds may be for billing, degree-bearing transcript, mandatory training or other outstanding issues.
Courses will be registered through the University’s MySlice system. When registering, please make sure that in addition to adding classes to the shopping cart, that you confirm the enrollment when able. For technical issues with MySlice, please contact the University’s ITS service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If a class section is full or closed, you can request to enroll using the registration waitlist. The Executive MPA Online Program will monitor and move students off the waitlist after registration begins each quarter. Waitlist requests will be prioritized based on the date received, and expected graduation date. In the meantime, you will want to register for a back-up course selection. In previous years, the department has been able to accommodate the majority of students on the waitlists, but those requests may not be processed until closer to the beginning of the term.
We will contact you if you are able to get into a wait-listed class. Thanks in advance for your patience during this process!
Immersion & Alumni Event
At least once a year, typically in the fall, the program hosts an immersion and alumni weekend event. This fall 2023 the immersion will be held on campus in conjunction with Orange Central, the University's Homecoming weekend! In addition, we will have special programming to launch the Maxwell School's countdown to our Centennial, marking 100 years since the founding in 1924. Come join us to connect with faculty, staff, student and alumni. More information and registration details can be found online here.
