Additional Notes for Midshipmen:

1. Midshipmen are free to meet with their advisers at any time of mutual convenience. They need not wait until the formal preregistration period begins to develop academic plans for the future. The week before the preregistration module is accessible on MIDS may be best for faculty and their midshipmen advisees to meet to plan the next semester.

2. Preregistration is essential to the administration of the academic program. Preregistration data is used to allocate resources and plan for the following semester. It is important to accomplish the preregistration process in a timely manner to meet deadlines. Therefore, any midshipman who has not preregistered on time will be reported to the Deputy Commandant and charged with a failure to properly perform a duty according to Midshipman Regulations. Moreover, midshipmen failing to preregister on time will lose the registration privilege that allows them to request instructors or schedules for next semester.

3. Midshipmen should not preregister or register for a course in a semester other than that prescribed by their class and major without a compelling reason.
