GENERAL REGISTRATION INFORMATION. A "Schedule of Classes" detailing registration-related regulations and information, the class sections, days, hours, and meeting places for each course is published each semester on the web (www.lehman.edu) before the start of registration. General registration information is available in the Registrar's offices (Shuster 105, 106, 108, 114, 175, and 182).
