Plan your course schedule

Since you’re looking at semester-based courses, you’ll start and end according to the regular Mizzou 8- or 16-week semester. Note: Some term classes do not fall in the 8- or 16-week semester.

The Mizzou academic calendar provides dates and deadlines for enrollment.

Your number of courses will depend on your personal commitments, your target graduation date and any overlap with other courses you are taking. 

Enroll in your course

You will be able to enroll through myZou. First time using myZou? Find out how it works.

If your online course is not available

In some cases, myZou might tell you that a course you wish to take is full or restricted. For courses that are full or if students do not meet the prerequisites, we ask that students email mizzouonlinenondegree@missouri.edu for permission (for both degree-seeking and nondegree-seeking students).

Keep in mind, however, that requesting permission does not mean you will receive it, and the university reserves the right to cancel courses due to insufficient enrollment. You will need to go through the following steps before you can take the course:

  • If consent is granted, you will receive a permission number via your official Mizzou email that you can use to enroll through myZou.
  • If there are problems that would prevent or delay your registration, you will be contacted by phone or email.
  • Use the permission number to enroll in your course, and keep the number and email for your records.

Updating your enrollment

You can make changes to your course schedule. Keep in mind that, if you enroll in a full-term semester course on or after the first day of the semester and this course is the only one you are enrolling in, you will be charged a late fee equal to one undergraduate credit hour.
