Register for a complete semester!

There are three semesters a year: Fall, Spring, and Summer. Admitted students may register for all the classes they wish to take during any term of a single semester, providing the classes have not yet started. For example during the first registration period of Spring Semester, you may register for your Spring I, Spring II, and, if available in your area, Spring III Term classes all at the same time.

Registering for all the classes you wish to take during a semester, whether Fall, Spring, or Summer, can help with packaging your financial aid and increase your chances of getting the classes you want.

Important note: Students will be billed during the next billing cycle and tuition will be due for all classes for which you have registered. For example: If you register during one registration period for a 3 credit class in Fall I and a 3 credit class in Fall II, you will be billed for 6 credit hours.

Global ID Setup

Once you have been given an admission status – non-degree, regular or conditional admission – one of the first things you must do is set up your CMU Global ID and e-mail account. Your tuition statements, course schedule information and all other critical communications from CMU are sent to your CMU e-mail account. You could miss out on vital information if you do not set up your account.


For security purposes, a student with any admission status – non-degree, regular or conditional – can only set up a Global ID and e-mail account within 30 days following their admission to CMU. After 30 days, the student will need to contact the on-campus Help Desk at (989) 774-3662 or for assistance in setting up their account.

How to set up your CMU Global ID and e-mail account:

  1. Log on to /newaccount
  2.  Follow the prompts to set up your account and password
